The ancient Newari settlement of Bandipur is one hill station with richness of its beauty and architecture. Its pagoda roofs, latticework windows and stone-paved streets are also the most attraction in local town. The dwellings are in the form of compact town houses, built of brick often with ornate windows and doorways. The roofs are of tin or slate.There are many temples and caves in and around bandipur. Bandipur offer panoramic views of different mountain peaks of the central Himalayas, including nature trail hike, Ganesh Himal, Langtang, Gorkha Himal, Manaslu, Buddha himal, the annapurna and Dhaulagiri.
view spot: we can see the breathtaking views of the Himalayan from Tundikhel, Langtang peak in the east to Dhaulagiri in the west. From the nearby hilltops, one can see as far as Manakamana and Gorkha and Marsyangdi valley right infront . Himalayas are best seen in the afternoons and before sunset and until dusk. The morning fog from the nearby valleys blurs the views over the Himalayas, but makes the scenery fairy-tale like.
sights around bazaar, Shiva is the Hindu god that we can see around bazaar. We were fortunate to witness a celebration at the shrine which gave out a mysterious air when lit with many oil lamps. The distinctive feature of the village houses are brick walls, mud floors and slate roofs. In fact, the slate roofs come directly from the pits in the village itself. Some houses are also very brightly painted with some unique decoration and colors
