Bandipur is an ancient trading town of quaint streets and charming
atmosphere. It is situated on a ridgetop south of Dumre which lies 135 km
out on the Kathmandu -Pokhara highway. Bandipur can be reached after a
two-hour climb from Dumre. While the other trading posts of the Nepali
hills have modernised, Bandipur retains its age old cultural attributes.
It still has its temples, shrines, holy caves and a newari architecture
that harks back to the Kathmandu Valley of old.
The best way to Bandipur is to arrive by mid-day at Dumre Bazaar from
Pokhara or Kathmandu, and to hike it up. You can also take a bus or a jeep
up on the link road.
Bandipur has a mountain resort hotel and another is coming up. Several
