Bat Cave, Pokhara

(3/5 based on 130 reviews on the web)
Visit Bat Cave to see thousands of bats clinging to the ceiling. As you pass through the slippery dark cave, you'll see plenty of live fruit bats, which your guide will tell you about. If scared or claustrophobic, you don’t have to go through the whole cave, but can stick to the more open spaces. If, however, you like a bit of an adrenaline rush, follow the guide and crawl through the tiny opening leading to the surface. Bat Cave is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Pokhara Edition.

  • One of the best caves to visit Pokhara. Very attractive price, 110 rupees. Free for children.

  • Seeing so many bats was really amazing, however the narrow and slippery exit wasn't very safe. I recomment to go back the same way you came in.

  • You see the “exit” and have no idea how it's an exit. Then after you come out of the tiny hole- you finally know! Amazing experience!
  • Though bat is less in september but still quite adventurous. Take a guide otherwise it will be a bit difficult. Surely worth a shot.
  • Nice place to visit. Carry light & watch your steps
  • Nice little adventure... Definitely take a guide, and prepare for some climbing to get out
  • Bat Cave. The name says it all. But don't expect to run into Batman.
