“Feel the spirit of goodness in Cave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave
Gupteshwor Mahadev is a beautiful cave just opposite to David Fall. A giant stalagmite within this cave is honoured as a Shiva lingam and the devout flock here to pray. Entry tickets allow you to enter the temple. For some extra money you can also obtain entry to the tunnel behind, which comes out at a wet cavern right behind the gushing Devi's Falls. Once inside the cave, look up at the ceiling and you will see detritus and branches in cracks in the rock. These have actually been pushed up there by flood waters that fill the cave during the monsoon.

“Must visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

This is a must visit place in pokhara. Careful and if you have boot use it inside the cave. Very slippery and muddy. You may skid... We fell :-( all these should not stop you visiting the cave.

“Lets not waste your time and money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

I did not like it at all. Many would say probably as I went during the monsoon- but I have been to nice caves in Bangladesh (Alu tila) during monsoon and loved it. The tmple might carry religious values- otherthan that I do not see a reason to visit.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

This is something I have never seen anywhere else. A temple inside a cave. Please avoid monsoon season of August while visiting here as the main portion of the cave is closed as its risky. During heavy rainy season the entire cave is filled with water which also submerges the temple(so I was told). Don't miss this place..

“Nothing great”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Not really worth visiting. The deeper section of the cave might have been cool to see but that was shut in the monsoons.
