2 days Bandipur Siddha Gufa Caving
Siddha Gufa is the largest cave in Nepal and second largest in Asia with 437m depth and 50m height. Being the largest cave in the whole country, it provides the best experiences of encounter with dark environment, bats chattering, mice moving and many more. Its interior is full of stalactites and stalagmites. It is also known as the place from where Siddha baba got his enlightenment. Trekking to this cave from Bandipur is interesting and most popular which takes about one and a half hour hike each way if it’s muddy. Alternatively, you can also march uphill to the cave from Bimalnagar (which lies on Prithvi Highway). It will take just 45 minutes to reach the cave. Dirt path and stone path are the only way to reach there which are slippery so it’s very necessary to take every step with care. The path is being managed and maintained to make it easy for travelers to explore around. It is also essential and somehow compulsory to hire a local guide as well to know more about the cave.

Day 1: Kathmandu to Bandipur
Stop At: Bandipur, Bandipur, Gandaki Zone, Western Region
Today is the first day of our trip. This day we move from Kathmandu to Bandipur which will take about 6 to 7 hours to reach. We drive exploring the beautiful view of nature as well as artistic beauties including fast flowing Trishuli River, green vegetation, human settlements, and many more. The maximum path is peached but we also have to cross through narrow off-roads which can be a little disturbing. It also gives us the splendid view of cable-cars moving from each side. We will have a homestay after reaching Bandipur. Overnight stay in Bandipur.
Duration: 7 hours
Accommodation included: Overnight at tea lodge
Day 2: Excursion around cave and return back to Kathmandu
Stop At: Siddha Gufa (Cave) Bimal Nagar, Bimal Nagar, Prithvi Hwy, Bandipur, Nepal
Today is the second but final day of our day. After having early breakfast, we will move towards the cave. The path remains muddy most of the time so we need to take proper care of our shoes and movement. We will walk along the muddy path, rock stairs, ropeways, and so on. Inside the cave, we can meet saints (Baba Ji) at the certain time as he sometimes moves out for a while. We can also observe a sketch of ancient saints carved on the stone. Water falling from stones is also a major attraction of the cave. After completing the tour of the cave, we move to our staying place and have lunch there. After having lunch, we will rest for sometimes and pack the bags and move towards the bus to return back to Kathmandu. You will be transferred to your respective hotel after reaching Kathmandu. Our beautiful journey with you ends here with a proper goodbye.
