Bandipur Homestay:

Bandipur is known as a tourist heaven. It is a big settlement of Newar along with their migration, the Newar brought with them their ironic cultural heritage and architecture, which still defines the look and feel of today’s Bandipur. When Newar brokers fanned out from the Kathmandu Valley looking for a new vision after its takeover by Prithvi Narayan Shah in the late eighteenth century, they chose Bandipur as an appropriate conduit for trade between the northern hills and the southern flatlands this place offers different varieties of attractions to the tourist.

Bandipur is naturally gifted overlooking the incredible expanse of the Marshyangdi river. The river falls and takes a sharp turn eastwards on its way to join the Trishuli river at Muglin. It offers a breathtaking sweep of the Himalayas ranges from Langtang in the east to Dhaulagiri in the west. The view of glorious sunshine and sunset from Tundekhel and Gurungchh hill is delightful.

The diversity of flora and fauna of Bandipur shows more than 200 species of forest plants and 70 species of wildlife. Siddha cave which is the biggest cave in Asia at 18 feet high situated north of Bandipur creates wonderful adventure. Another secretive cave called Patalidwar (a gateway to hell) which holds religious significance.

Other charms consist of the Bindyabashini temple and the library in the village center and places such as Tindhara, and Raniban. The straightforward trek to the Siddha Cave and a hike to Ramkot village are other highlights of this trip. On Mukundeswari, the elevation at the western end of the saddle is a petite memorial and one has a view of Bandipur itself.

Bandipur is an ideal pulling out to soak in this magnificent heritage along with the natural glory of the surroundings. With its countless attractions enlarging from the creative to the scenic, Bandipur stimulates visitors of all interests to come and find out something for themselves.
