The name of this place is said to be inspired by the sound of gurgling water
in a nearby water source. While there is a public water spout in this village
we could not hear the "Bhulbhule" sound there. Perhaps during some other age.
Anyways, this little village which is spread on both sides of the river
Marshyangdi has some decent accommodation. The older eastern part of town has
smaller lodges while the western newer part of town has more sprawling and
'modern' lodges. If you got to Besishahar in the afternoon, chances are you
will have to spend a night here.
Also at Bhulbhule you get a first glimpse of the mountains to the north. The
eastern group is Himalchuli while the west peak is that of Ngadi Chuli. You
will be meeting the Ngadi river that originates from these peaks between Ngadi
village and Bahundanda.
To the south-west of the village, there are offices and quarters for the 50 MW
Upper Marshyangdi Hydropower Project. While these 'ugly' structures divert the
traveler from the unsullied image that they come with, consider this: despite
having a potential to generate 727,000 GWh per year, Nepal currently only
generates about 3,850 GWh per year which is about a 1,000 GWh less than the
demand. Hence, if Nepal is to combat poverty and the intolerable load
shedding, projects like these are very important.
