The Ultimate Guide to Exploring Bandipur | Mapping Nepal

Posted by Anup Baral | September 06, 2019 :
One of Nepal's most beautiful but yet astonishingly less traveled hilltop settlement, Bandipur is a living, breathing gallery of Newari culture where the lifestyle is well preserved and stone-paved road is dotted with traditional architecture. Today the village houses have evolved into modern cafes and home-stays, and the temples and monuments have been pulled back from the edge of ruin. And all thanks to its appealing 18th-century architecture, pedestrian zone and outdoor dining, it has a distinct European countryside vibe - something that will make the time come to a halt. Almost! Historically, Bandipur was an important stop on the India–Tibet trade route for centuries until it was bypassed by the Prithvi Highway in the 1960s. While it has since turned to tourism, it still remains very much a living community, bustling with farmers and traders going about their business. It is one place that every Nepali NEEDS to visit at least once in their lifetime so that they pause to savor this discerning place and its lifestyle.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
