There are numerous rock-cut caves in the Pokhara Valley. They have been formed as a result of running water action. The river Seti Gandaki, which flows through the city, has created several gorges and canyons in and around Pokhara. These caves are as mysterious as they’re beautiful.
The caves of Pokhara have streams running through them. Some of these caves contain temples dedicated to Hindu deities. The most famous cave is Mahendra Cave. The cave contains a statue of Lord Shiva. Drops of water seeping through the limestone have made structures on the cave walls which give it an eerie look. The Bat’s Cave or Chamera Gupha is another popular tourist attraction. As the name suggests, it is a limestone cave full of screeching bats. The Gupteshwar Mahadev Cave is also another cave dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is considered to be nearly 600 years old. The Crazy cave is perhaps the most difficult to enter because of its confusing structure.
