Bandipur is a magical place and Mountain Ridge is one of its gems.
It was the best place I visited on my trip to Nepal. No pollution, no traffic, just beautiful and peaceful little sleepy town where the time stood nearly still......with historic, well looked after main square, and fantastic views of the Himalayas as well as incredibly green rice paddies.
Mountain ridge is definitely a home stay, not a hotel, and one feels like a member of the family from the moment of arrival. The rooms are large and comfortable with balconies to sit and watch the world go by. So relaxing! I had to force myself to leave it and go to explore all the other delights; walks to hidden waterfalls, caves, and exploring the life in this amazing place. Home cooked food was delicious, as was the laughter of the children around.
Piers is one of the rare people who will go to incredible length to inform and help in every way. His knowledge of the area, its history and its people is quite exceptional.
A happy place and happy time. Thank you Piers and family. Will be back...........
