The national capital Kathmandu is situated 60 miles (97 kilometers) east of Bandipur, while Kathmandu Valley is 60 miles (97 kilometers) to the east.
Bandipur isn't the only spot in Nepal worth seeing; travelers can also take a day trip or two to experience the magic of the surrounding countryside, communities and cultural attractions. You may also wish to check out Lekhnath, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the southeast, and Sauraha 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the north.
Around 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the northwest of Bandipur is Pokhara, a regional center where you go see Bindhyabasini Temple, Pokhara International Mountain Museum and World Peace Stupa. Mahendra Cave, Devi's Fall and Barahi Temple are also good places to spend some time.
A good trick to learn about a place and its people is by researching its past. While here, be sure to drop into the area's fine historic palaces.
Specialized tours are a fascinating way to discover the special places. Sign up for one of the wildlife spotting tours and wildlife safaris. If you're are lucky to have good weather while you are here, make the most of local water activities. Rafting and canoeing are two local options.
The handiest major airport, Pokhara Airport, is located in Pokhara, 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the northwest of Bandipur, so take that into account when booking your vacation.
