Tansen, Palpa: City Guide and Photography, Tansen, Nepal (B)

Tansen, Nepal is a special city to me because it’s the place my boyfriend was born. I have to say, I was super excited to see it, but I hadn’t done any research before arriving. It didn’t seem necessary since I had a tour guide who was born and raised there. The truth is, I didn’t expect much, but I was blown away by how much there is to do and see. And don’t even get me started on the views! We arrived on a hazy day, and you couldn’t even see into the valley below, but we lucked out. After some rainfall, dust settled and we got crystal clear skies. I’ve never seen the mountains so clearly from so far away! It was kind of insane considering how 24 hours earlier there was no view at all!

Tansen remains off the beaten path for foreign tourists, but it is a destination among locals and those coming from Northern India who want relief from the summer heat. At an altitude just above 1,600m, the climate is gorgeous in the summer. But, I wouldn’t recommend it in monsoon season as landslides are common on the road to get to Tansen. If you are in Pokhara and decide to head to Lumbini, it’s conveniently located in the middle making it the perfect place to stop. I’m honestly not sure why Tansen isn’t a tourist hot spot. ......
