Small town of Bandipur stands on a dramatic ridge with excellent views of the Marshyangdi valley and sweep of Himalayas from Mt. Dhaulagiri to Mt. Langtang. It is a beautiful hilltop village colonized by Newars in the 1800s. Today town is the perfect place to get the feel for Newari life. The architecture and the ambience of Bandipur are medieval. You may walk around the village. There are a few small Hindu temples. For impressive views of Himalayas, you will have to make a short steep walk to Thani Mai Temple. Sunrise and sunset are spectacular from this place. An easy 30 minutes’ walk will take you to a silk farm. The Siddha Gufa is the ‘must see’ attraction in Bandipur. This sight lies below the town, and is in fact 1.5 hours walk. The limestone formation within the cave is impressive and undamaged. When driving to/from Pokhara, you may make a stop to visit this beautiful Newari village.
