Bandipur is tantalising and as yet undiscovered. Just a 3,5 hour drive from Kathmandu lies the hilltop settlement of Bandipur, a Newar town that has retained its age-old cultural attributes – temples, shrines, sacred caves, innumerable festivals, and a Newari architecture that harks back to the Kathmandu Valley of old. Located on a wide saddle at a height of 1.030m the surrounding hills are ideal for hiking along trails that take you through tribal villages, verdant forests, and hilltop shrines that once doubled as fortresses. More information on this village and the trip itineraries can be found under Bandipur!
