An ancient trading outpost of a bygone era, the town of Bandipur has only recently come into the limelight. Bandipur is the ideal getaway for those in quest of peace and solitude since this trade-entrepot of times forgotten has long lost its use. Besides the gorgeous view of the central Himalaya and the Marshyangdi valley, there are a couple of peculiarnatural sites like limestone caves, an endless tunnel and the surrounding hills too are very odd looking.
Bandipur is located at a rise of 1030m on a mountain saddle (Mahabharat range) pretty nearly 700m over the Marsyangdi River Valley, 143 km to the west of Kathmandu and 80 km to the east of Pokhara. A perfectly safeguarded town crowning a grand edge over the parkway stop of Dumre, Its slowing down is lined with customary Newari houses. Time appears to have stood still here, despite the fact that it has required a considerable measure of push to safeguard the enchantment while building up the town as a destination.
With its sublime eighteenth century architecture, non-appearance of mechanized vehicles and restaurant tables set out on the bazaar, it has a unique European feel. Yet Bandipur stays all that much a living group, clamoring with agriculturists and dealers continuing on ahead nearby the travelers.
