|Walking inside the cave was not easy|
I would like to share my last years visit to Gupteshwor Mahadev Gupha (Cave) in Pokhara. The cave lies across the road on the southern side of Devi’s fall. There are two parts in the cave. The first part has a temple with cow statue which gives milk when fed with some money :) and the second part has the real cave. Being a resident of Pokhara, I have been to the first part of the cave i.e. upto the temple several times, but never been to the second part before. Last year in February, my father-in-law and mother-in-law came to visit Pokhara. One of the famous places we visited was Gupteshwor cave.
After worshiping in the temple, we entered to the second part. The path was narrow and roof was low. We had to bent while walking through. After walking like this for a while, we came to a broad part of the cave. Ah, we were very much amazed. The golden and silver blushes on some parts of the wall along with the beach-sand like appearance of the floor lured me.
When we moved forward, we came across a steep metal stair. After moving 14 steps downward from the stair, we moved towards the water fall coming from Devi's fall. We touched the cold water from the fall and were happy for that. We could see light after moving such a distance through the cave. Staying there and wondering for a while, we had to go to other places, so we returned back.

This is one of the best tourist destinations in Pokhara. Don't miss to see it.
