Trip Note

Top things to do in Bandipur Village
Surprisingly, there are unlimited things to do in Bandipur. The first one is to relax and enjoy the reprieve from the bustle of Nepal. The second are all these fun activities:

Visit the Monk and the tiny Buddist Monastery at the Boudha Sadan Shakyamuni Monastery  (also just known as Bandipur Monastery)

This was one of our most favorite days during our 2-month stay in Nepal. We took a walk up the Buddhist monetary by following the steps just past the main square. The Monk who resides there invited us in for tea to share his story about building the monastery and his expansion plans for the temple, which resulted to spending the whole afternoon there. He left us to meditate in the temple and sit on the steps of the temple to admire the views of the snowy peaks of the Himalayas across the horizon. This is one of those once-in-a-lifetime moments to get up close and personal, an opportunity to connect with a Monk and ask anything you want.

Climb up to the Thani Mai

This is a hill above the town with a well-marked staircase and hand-railed path. It is best to climb in the early morning sunrise or afternoon sunset. At the top is the Thani Mai temple, a small Hindu temple, which is not a significant attraction but a great place to visit for the views. For an even better view, you can continue to hike across the mountain range to the Gurungche Hill to get a full 360-degree view of the entire area. The hike is a comfortable, mildly steep walk up the stairs for about 30 minutes.

Explore and climb through the dark Siddha Cave

Hike down the steep stairs halfway down the Bandipur village hill to reach the Siddha Cave, the largest cave in Nepal measuring 437m deep and about 50 metres high. A guide is required to lead you through the cave. The guide, which is at a small cost, carries a flashlight and leads you to descend into deep caverns on ladders and swing through sections with ropes. The cave is full of stalactite structures. You can hear the sound of whistling bats high above the cavern walls. Along the way, you will see local worship and meditation areas and a swimming pool during the rainy season.  Good shoes are necessary. Bring your own headlamp. This adventure isn’t for the faint of heart.

Admire and wander the temples

There are several beautiful Hindu temples scattered throughout the town. You can explore on your own to find them, such as the Bindebasini temple, a small temple located on the north part of the main street or bazaar. The temple is known to be a dedication to the goddess Durga. Intricate stone carvings line the temple and along the historic wooden door. The Padma library, a striking 18th-century building with Newari-styled carved windows and beams, is facing the temple across the square.

Shop the Bandipur Old Bazaar – Buy t-shirts, Newari gifts, and snacks. The benefit of no haggling is that you can wander to your heart’s content. Hike along the countryside to whichever direction you choose and you are going to find interesting homes and temples.


There is a paragliding takeoff area just at the outskirts of Bandipur main town. Your guesthouse can arrange a glide for you, so inquire when you arrive.

Silkworm Farm

 Over here, you can see how silk is produced. The farm has orchards of mulberry plants grown for worm food – the worms themselves are reared indoors, usually from August to December and March to May. But you can visit them at any time, and there will be a staff member on hand to explain the process.
