Seated in the privileged place in Bandipur means that Gaun Ghar is far removed from the crowd and pollution of the cities of Nepal. Moreover, Bandipur itself, originally a Magar settlement followed by the Newars, carries such an attraction in its unspoilt Newari culture that you fully immerse into its ambience. Here, you take a tour back into the times of history as far as the beginning of the nineteenth century, when the Newars from Kathmandu first started settling here. The 15 exquisitely rebuilt rooms of Gaun Ghar carry much of that appeal of medieval Nepal, making your stay a worthwhile experience.

With your stay in Gaun Ghar, you shall feel the traditional Nepalese life inside-out, enjoying the Nepalese way of hospitality inside a construction displaying the traditional architecture and artisanship.
