Welcome to Bandipur


Bandipur was an important stop on the India–Tibet trade route for centuries until it was bypassed by the Prithvi Hwy in the 1960s. While it has since turned to tourism, it remains very much a living community, bustling with farmers and traders going about their business. Pause to savour this unique place.
