Ramkot is a beautiful village and a popular hiking destination near Bandipur. Here visitors can experience the lifestyle of rural Nepal. Ramkot is home to Magar peoples who are the descendants of Mongol interlopers. They are considered particularly hard working, honest and friendly and will warmly welcome you to their village.
Local trails lead through villages where you can see typical village-life, traditional homes and interesting temples. Crisp mountain air, birds chirping – this is mountain life at its very best.
Hike from Bandipur to Ramkot Village.
As the morning sun climbs higher and the mist slowly rises from the mountains your guide will collect you for this 5-hour (roundtrip) hike to Ramkot.
As soon as you leave Bandipur the hills become a richer shade of green, with steep cliffs, rocks and tiered terraces.
Walking in the fresh mountain air will give you an appetite, so we will find a good spot for a picnic, lie back in the grass and soak up the scenery. Spend some time exploring Ramkot village and getting to know the locals before hiking back to Bandipur.
Great opportunity to learn about Nepal culture! Our guide, Ram Hari was excellent! Well organized and well informed!
