Bandipur accommodation - Gaun Ghar
Gaon Ghar is a simply restored traditional Newari town house in the centre of Bandipur, a small village in the hills above the main Kathmandu-Pokhara highway. The owner grew up in the mountains before moving to Kathmandu but as the city grew bigger and polluted he decided to return to the hills to raise his own children surrounded by nature.
Taking pride in Bandipur’s cultural heritage, Basnet created 14 simple en-suite rooms with polished wood floors, minimally decorated with locally produced handmade textiles. At the rear of the hotel the sunny terrace is the perfect place to sit drinking tea or eating a meal prepared from locally grown ingredients while viewing a spectacular panorama of the Annapurna range of the Himalaya.
The hotel is run on environmentally friendly principles with energy and water usage kept to a minimum and the final approach to the property is on foot (luggage will be carried for you). It’s a super base from which to enjoy the bustle of a small town, visit local temples and take walks in the surrounding hills.
