Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world. BUDDHA

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

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

People use  organic compost as fertilizer which is also good in 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.

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 you more pictures because this is my unplanned trip due to limited time schedule.
