The charming town of Bandipur is one of central Nepal’s hidden gems and a living museum of Newari culture. Although the town has developed as a destination, time has almost stood still, with its main traditional rows of houses and 18th-century architecture. Temples and municipal structures have been dragged back from the brink of ruin, and derelict buildings have been reincarnated as cafes and lodges.
Bandipur is perched at around 1,000 metres on a ridge between Kathmandu and Pokhara and offers breathtaking views of the Marsyangdi river valley and the Himalayan mountain range.
Formerly a commercial centre along the Tibet trade route, Bandipur is the perfect stop between Pokhara and Kathmandu and is ideal for catching a glimpse of rural Nepal and community life.
