trip Overview

Gorkha Durbar is an ancient palace of the Shah Dynasty which was used to rule the country before a few years ago. It is the Birth Place of Brave King Prithvi Narayan Shah who unified small territories into a strong Nation. From the year of 1604 to 1641 the Shah dynasty becomes the famous rule over the Gorkha. He is also well known for gathering all the Gorkha soldiers and battling to unite the nation by taking over the Kathmandu. Gorkha Durbar is at the elevation of 1,000 feet above from Gorkha Bazaar. The historical Gorkha palace offers spectacular views of the Himalayan range such as Mt. Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Himchuli, and many other peaks. It is also the temple complex of Gorakh Kali and Gorakhnath from which one can assume that the name of the place was GORKHA.

Manakamana Temple is also in Gorkha District. The place is widely popular as a sacred place of Hindu Religion, built in the 17th century. The belief is that the goddess Manakamana grants the wishes to all of those who come to worship here. The word Makamana means “Mana” is Heart and Kamana means Wish. The temple is lying 12KM south of Gorkha Bazaar. All devotees assume that Manakamana Devi fulfills the wishes. So pilgrimage tourists from all countries and all religions go to visit there. This tour is the famous pilgrimage tour of Nepal.

Bandipur is located at an altitude of 1030m from sea level which is located 143 KM west side of Kathmandu Valley and 80KM East of Pokhara.
