Devis Falls and Mahadev Cave, Pokhara, Nepal

The Seti River winds through Pokhara, mostly in the narrow canyon it's carved for itself, thin and deep. Devis Falls is where it undergrounds itself for a time, and Mahadev Cave is where you can go down underground and see it!

Also, in proving that American Christians have no monopoly on religious silliness with Jesus-on-a-tortilla and whatnot, Mahadev Cave has a Hindu Shrine within because--I kid you not--there is a permanent dark "shade" that looks like a cow. Alas, it's forbidden to take a picture of the Cow Shade, and a Nepali man sits in a chair to enforce the policy, so all I can provide is a picture of the sign.
