Bandipur Village Tour

Bandipur, a pleasant hillside village is placed on a hill-crest that offers a magnificent view of the central Himalayas and the Marshyangdi valley. This historic Newari mountain settlement located somewhat mid-way between Kathmandu and Pokhara and only 8 Kms above the Prithivi Highway. Untouched by modernization, and laced with a plenty of traditional Nepali houses, temples of great significance, and historical architecture, this medieval-era town boasts festivals all year around. Nearby Brahmins, Chhetri, and other indigenous villages all contribute to the cultural diversity of this region. The hilltop settlement not only overlooks the incredible expanse of the Marsyanngdi river valley, but also offers a breathtaking sweep of the Himalayan range, from Langtang in the east to Dhaulagiri in the west. From nearby hilltops, one can see as far as Gorkha to east the great Chitwan to the south, among others, this is ideal place for two, three days hiking in the surrounding hills.
