Bandipur Tour is the most ideal tour that takes you into culture of earlier Nepal and diverse mix of people. Bandipur is a great little town to spend a day or two visiting or to detour to during the road journey between Kathmandu and Pokhara. It is place to acclimatize a little at an altitude of 1,030 m, enjoy unspoiled views from the lovely Mahabharata Range and taste the culture of an earlier Nepal. 

To reach this former trading post, established by trading families mostly from Bhakatapur, one travels ancient hill paths through leafy forests to this charming hilltop town 143 km west of Kathmandu, 73 km south of Pokhara, 70 km north of Chitwan and only 8 km from Dumre Bazaar on the main Kathmandu to Pokhara highway. One sees early Newar architecture, sadly disappearing in other areas as well as fascinating temples, hilltop shrines, sacred caves, signs of early fortresses and tribal villages.

After King Prithvi Narayan Shah and his followers overtook the Kathmandu Valley in 1768, Bandipur grew into a busy commercial centre with numerous trading posts developing in the surrounding hills.  As a place where all trails from central Nepal and Tibet converged, Bandipur grew in wealth and importance through the 1800s.  

When Nepal opened its borders in the 1950s, Bandipur’s importance as a hub diminished. By 1972 the Kathmandu Pokhara highway bypassed the hill town and later Pokhara established an air field meaning travellers could make the trip in an hour instead of six or seven by road. In the short term losing its importance was a challenge but in the long term it has meant that Bandipur retained its distinctive character. Its sturdy buildings have since been renovated or reinvented as shops, cafes and accommodation. Travellers relish the history that is very evident in the town and the sights they see as they tour the region.
