Bandipur || Perfect mixture of nature and culture


Bandipur is a hilltop settlement and a municipality in Tanahun District of Nepal. Because of its preserved, old-time cultural atmosphere, Bandipur has increasingly been coming to the attention of tourism. Unlike most trading posts in the Nepal hills, it 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.

Bandipur lies at 27.5° N and 84.25° E and the elevation of 1030 meters above sea level, in the Tanahu District. It is 143 km west of Kathmandu, 73 km south of Pokhara, and 70 km north to Chitwan. It is a municipality since 18th May 2014 by the combination of the Dharampani and Bandipur VDCs. During the time of the census of 2011 AD, the population of Bandipur was 15,591 and there were a total of 3,750 households in Bandipur.

Bandipur is famous for its natural beauty and warm hospitality. It is one of the most beautiful towns of Nepal not only being naturally beautiful but also for preserving its unique history and culture over time. It can also be called a natural view tower since it lies on the top of the hill and offers a spectacular view of the Annapurna Range along with the Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, and Lang tang. Mixed with the spectacular natural beauty, it also offers an experience of an old aged Newari culture to the visitors.

It was originally inhabited by the Magars until the Newars from Bhaktapur settled during the early nineteenth century. The Newars developed the place as a stop on the India-Tibet trade route. Here, along with developing trade, the Newars also introduced their culture and unique architecture.
