Bandipur Things to Do

  • Stroll as much as your feet can bear

    Strolling around the town, to hilltops and peaks, to objectives such as the largest cave in Nepal (Siddha Gufa), or the Martyrs Memorial, or the Patali Dwar (aka the Gateway to Heaven), etc. This is something you definitely won’t have enough. Just smell the flavours, and you’ll want to wander around to abandoned army camps or police stations, or to...

  • Tundikhel

    Back when Bandipur was a stop no the trade route India – Tibet, Tundikhel was the setting for trade fairs, as well as a parade ground for archery contests and celebrations. Strolling around the platform, i got a sense of eternalness to the point that i even expected some medieval arches to jump from the enormous fig trees while trade caravans were...

  • Views over Himalayas

  • Town Square

    This is where the majority of activities is located. All the shops and hostels are here, so it's the best place to coordinate activities.

  • Shiva shrine

    Shiva is the Hindu god the locals pray to. We were fortunate to witness a celebration at the shrine which gave out a mysterious air when lit with many oil lamps.The locals make a sweet, flour cake as offerings and consumption.

  • Mulberry and silkworm farm

    As the silkworm farming is more for subsistence rather than tourism, it may be advisable to get a villager to accompany you there.They allow us to freely pick the juicy mulberry fruits which you must be careful not to let it drip on your clothes as they do not come off.


Bandipur Transportation

  • The “highway” to Bandipur

    The mountain road between Kathmandu and Pokhara is called “highway”, although it would not qualify not even as a secondary road as per other standards – average speed 30 kms/h.To reach Bandipur from either Kathmandu or Pokhara, your first stop is Dumre, a town halfway in between. From Chitwan, take any bus heading for Kathmandu and get off at...

  • Dumre – Bandipur

    From Dumre, jeeps to Bandipur leave from the main road. Just ask the locals, they will show you where. The 7km road up the mountain is done in 20 minutes, and a fare would be 20 rupees. From Bandipur, jeeps to Dumre leave from the main road or from the town square.In reality, the situation on the “20 rupees fare” is a little bit different – having...
