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 bed-and-breakfast places are also available.
