Gandaki. There is a historical house built during the time of the ancestors of Man Bahadur Pun in Modi Rural Municipality-4, Lespar of Parbat.
Pun said that he had heard from his childhood that his ancestors had paid a daily wage (50 paise) to the house builder even though he could not find out the exact date on which the house was built.
Spread from an altitude of 1,910 meters to 2,195 meters above sea level, the village is home to beautiful stone-built houses built in ancient times, such as that of Man Bahadur.
Houses covered with stone, wide staircases paved with stones, street lights and cleanliness are the main attractions for the visitors.
Stating that the village is equally prosperous not only in nature but also in culture, Pun said that Lespar community homestays have also been brought into operation in the village in recent years.
The Magar-dominated village has 99 percent Magar and one percent Dalit households. It is a beautiful settlement located in the foothills of Kalangar (Hampal) mountain, far north of Mount Lespar.
There are no other settlements to the north of this settlement. As it is also a destination for hiking tourism, private houses have been brought into operation since 2071 BS.
Secretary of Lespar Community Homestay Narasimha Pun informed that 12 houses have been set up here and arrangements have been made to accommodate 40 bedded guests.
