5 Days Bandipur Tour in Nepal
Bandipur yoga tour is a spectacular and mesmerizing tour for historical, cultural and natural purpose. bandipur is a hilly region from where, we can view the panorama of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Manaslu, and Ganesh Himal ranges. We can see cascading Marshyangdi River. We can enjoy the terraced fields and we can have the never-ending blissful experience. Hindu temples and a big cave are also Bandipur yoga tour ‘s amazing attractions.
After our travel from Kathmandu, when you reach this place with tiredness or fatigue it gets released as soon as you breathe in the air of this amazing land. The neat and clean streets with stones as a courtyard along the way would make your leg more eager to pave on.
You wouldn’t see the tables and chairs laid outside of the restaurants. Rather than in the outdoor setting, the welcome is honored inside the buildings. The buildings of about 2/3 stories in the town allow you to see the surrounding with ease and ecstasy which you can see in our Bandipur yoga tour.
The doors are comparatively smaller in the older buildings than in the newer ones. Almost every building erected on the road has served shops of different kinds.
In spite of having the cultural and architectural set up of the Newari and the Magar, it was once the trade route to India-Tibet. Even though the Magar king had ruled over this fascinating land, Shah King Prithi Narayan Shah conquered this place to include it in the United Nepal in the 18th century.
Since then, Newari started to settle on this hilly land still keeping the relics and structures of the Newari culture intact to this date. Because of its location away from the booming chaotic crowds and urban settlements in most towns of the country, it has still preserved its cleanliness and freshness, along with prosperous culture, architect and custom which definitely allures the visitors.
In the 1970s, there was a decline in business and trade. One cause of this was the transfer of the district headquarters to Dumre. Another cause was the construction of Prithvi Highway on the edge of Marshyangdi valley, which isolated Bandipur from the route. Despite having faced these declines, this serene hilly land and culturally prosperous place didn’t descend on its conservation and protection of the historical architect and structures.
You will get a great opportunity to see such structures have been the most unique aspect to entice visitors to this secluded land in our yoga tour to Bandipur. The establishment of an 8 kilometer road in 1998 AD from Dumreto Bandipur made the access easier back then and today not only for the local people, but also for the tourists who long to relishin the marvel of this place.
The Bandipur village development committee in collaboration with the Dharampani village development committee formed Bandipur Municipality in 2014 AD
