Package Itinerary

Bandipur tour offers panoramic view in the location like 27.56 N, 84.25 E and an elevation of 1030m on a mountain saddle (Mahabharata range) approximately 700m above the Marsyangdi River Valley, 143 km to the west of Kathmandu and 80 km to the east of Pokhara. Since 1998 it is connected by an 8km access road from Dumre (Kathmandu-Pokhara highway). Until then there was only an unreliable road, in monsoon usually not accessible or only by tractors. The mountain saddle, just 200m long, is barely wide enough to accommodate the main street lined by 2 or 3 storey buildings on either side. At the backsides of these houses the mountainsides steeply descend and the gardens are only accessible by stairs.

Bandipur tour in Nepal gives tremendous pleasure of combining many attractions within one place. Well-facilitated resort at an ancient developed village in the lap of mountain looking closed by and other kinds of natural beauty make so extra ordinary. Tour in Nepal is one of the famous touristy activities and Bandipur tour is even special which easily accessible comfortably by car or by bus then walk. In Bandipur tour, Kathmandu sightseeing tour, Manakamana temple sightseeing and Bandipur tour in itself are concluded.

Bandipur tour is very historical and it was established as a funneling point of trade by Newar traders from Bhaktapur in the Kathmandu valley after it had been conquered in 1768 by Prithvi Narayan Shah. They took advantage of its malaria free location to develop it into an important stop along the India-Tibet trade route. With them they brought their cultural heritage and architecture which basically has remained unchanged to this day.
