Bandipur Was established as a funnelling point of trade by Newar traders from Bhaktapur in the Kathmandu valley. Bandipur; a prosperous trading centre and a community with town-like features: substantial buildings, with their neoclassical façades and shuttered windows and streets paved with slabs of silverish slate. Pokhara; second largest city lies on the banks of glorious Lake Phewa beneath the 50 km Annapurna Range. We spend a day exploring the city, the mountain Museum and visit the Tibetan cultural centre. A Himalayan Sunrise, with three of the fourteen 8000 m Peaks on show, will be celebrated from high view points.
Drive to Lumbini; a sacred birthplace of Lord Gautam Buddha. It is the pilgrimage site for Buddhists and Hindus. This is the breadbasket and industrial heart of the country. The cities are not large; the majority of the population still lives in rural villages. The Terai has a tropical monsoon climate and is generally humid. Nine day tour to this place includes visits to rural Bandipur and Urban Pokhara South of the high Himalayas. We continue our trip to Chitwan; jealously guards its forests and grasslands: a surrounding buffer zone ensures its future.
