Who we are

Welcome to Gaun Ghar, a unique boutique hotel in the town of Bandipur. Translated into Nepali, Gaun Ghar means 'village house' and this hotel is actually an old newari traditional mud-and-brick residence that was renovated into a tourist accommodation.

Gaun Ghar has 28 beautifully restored rooms with attached bathrooms and serene view of the mountains and the town. This eco-friendly hotel is managed by the same group of ecotourism experts behind Kantipur Temple House and The Explore Nepal.

This heritage hotel has preserved the traditional architecture and ambience of the place. The restoration has taken every consideration to bring the house back to its orginal flair.


Heritage Room

All our rooms are heritage rooms since the hotel itself is a heritage property that has been renovated in its original theme. They are appointed in a simple manner with traditional beddings and décor and have attached bathrooms. Care has been taken to furnish the rooms with beautiful local products. The rooms overlook either the gorgeous view of the hills and the mountains or to the quaint and pretty old town of Bandipur.

US$ 100 per night

Just like all of its sister concerns, Gaun Ghar, the finest boutique hotel in Bandipur, adheres to the norms of sustainable tourism and corporate social responsibility. Some of the measures we have taken to ensure the same are:

  • We do not use polythene bags while making any purchase for the accomodation.
