An ancient hill town Tansen, 1350 meters above sea level, is the administrative headquarter of the Palpa district and lies in the Lumbini zone of west Nepal. Tansen is the best and nearest hill station in southwest Nepal. This hill station is famous for various kinds of handicrafts, textiles,s and organic coffee. Karuwa, a water jug made of bronze, a typical Nepali cap & shawl made of Dhaka textiles are legendary souvenirs from Tansen, Palpa.  This place is renowned for its mild climate.  Though there are many historical places and things to see due to limited time  I roamed for one hour only.

Batasae Dada also known as Windy Hills is one of the most beautiful places where mild wind keeps blowing every time.

"Batasae Dada"  means windy hills

People use organic compost as fertilizer which is also good for vegetable farming. We can see these types of compost in most of the villages of Nepal. Organic compost is made up of cow manure and hay.

In the Vedic language ‘Sanskrit’, Lumbini means ‘The lovely’. It is a holy Buddhist pilgrimage situated in the Kapilvastu district of the western Terai region of Nepal. Lumbini is the birthplace of Buddha.  It is nearly 300 kilometers from Kathmandu and 190 kilometers south of Pokhara.  This place is listed as a world heritage site. There are many Buddhist Stupas and temples to see.  This place is full of peace.

There are more monasteries and temples to visit. All you need is you should have enough time to visit all these sacred sites and know their meaning. I can’t post more pictures because this is my unplanned trip due to my limited time schedule.

  1. Really lovely photos. Are you planning to go to Lumbini for Buddha Purnima? Where was the Dhaka textile shop? I need to buy Dhaka Topi for my dad when I come. After you are looking so nice in the shawl I think I might get one! :p
