Bandipur Hiking

Duration: 7 Days   |   PhotosDownload

Hiking around Bandipur: an ancient Newari village, this is a fascinating hill town that lies on a hillside that offers stunning views of the central Himalayas and the Marshyandgi valley. Bandipur hiking provides an opportunity to explore the ancient Newari culture, Magar villages, Shidha cave and the massif Annapurna rages with Dhaulagiri. This beautiful village is located somewhat mid-way between Kathmandu and Pokhara and only eight Kilometers above the Prithivi Highway,

It is the ideal spot for travelers to take a lunch- break, stretch the body or simply gaze at the enchanting mountain views. Untouched by modernization, and laced with an abundance of ancient houses, temples of great significance, and historical architecture, this medieval-era town boasts festivals all year round, besides a plethora of cultural offerings. Neighboring Magar, Gurung, Braman, Chhetri, Damai and Sarki villages all contribute to the cultural diversity of the region. The hilltop town 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 Manakamana and Gorkha to east the great Chitwan plains to the south, among others, this is an ideal place for two, three-day hiking in the surrounding hills.
