Bandipur is the perfect place to break the long journey between Pokhara and Kathmandu. This small hilltop village is home to traditional Newari-style houses that have been transformed to charming cafes and lodges. Go on a trek around town for picturesque views overlooking the Nepali countryside. A glimpse of the Annapurnas can even be seen on a clear day.

Bandipur is found between Kathmandu and Pokhara. To get there from Kathmandu, ride a bus or charter a car to Dumre, a town found along the highway. Travel time takes about 3 to 4 hours. From Dumre, the ride uphill to Bandipur takes only 30 minutes. If you are coming from Pokhara, the drive to Dumre takes 2 to 3 hours.
