The serene and beautiful Bandipur hilltop town is one of the famous tourist destinations in Nepal. This town preaches improbably in the ridge, beneath steep limestone peaks.
The town’s nineteenth-century mansions, with their grand neoclassical facades and shuttered windows, speak of past glories, and tourism is providing a new economic boom to this city.
Bandipur Bazaar is the center of this hilltop town. Several shrines and temples surround the bazaar making it an interesting place to stroll around. Moreover, the relic is displayed on the seventh day of Dashain (Hindu biggest festival) but bound by a cloth piece. The locals here believe that anyone looking at the blade hidden beneath the wrapped cloth piece will die instantly as if the lightning struck.
Furthermore, there are plenty of hikes from the Bandipur’s central bazaar. Among them, hike to the Gurungche Daada (meaning Hill) is among the best.
Moreover, it is one of the interesting places to glimpse sunrise, sunset, and the Himalayan range views.
