A Beautiful Hill Station in the western part of Nepal, Tansen is the headquarter of Palpa District. It lies between Pokhara (122 km from Tansen),  famous tourist city and Lumbini (85km from Tansen),  birthplace of Lord Buddha, founder of Buddhism. Tansen is only 65 km from Sunauli, an Indian Border.  We can see traditional newari  art and architecture. It is a ancient trade route with panoramic views of himalayas as well as the plains of Terai.  It is a pleasant place to visit during any season of the year. Tansen is 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 souveniers from Tansen. Recently an organic coffee from Tansen and its surroundings is getting worldwide attention due to its unique taste. Tansen is also famous for Ginger.

It is regarded as an earthly paradise.  The best time to visit Pokhara are Ocotber and November, in autumn; and February, March and April in spring.  It is also starting point for the trekkers doing Annapurna region, Mustang region, and so on.

Nagarkot anciently known as Mandapgiri is  located 32 km east of Kathamndu 2000 m above sea level. This is one of the famous touristic destination where breathtaking p anoramic view of snow-capped mountains are presented.  8 Himalayan ranges of Nepal out of 13 can be viewd from here . The ranges include Annapurna range, Manaslu range, Ganesh himal range, Langtang range, Jugal range, Rolwaling range, Mahalangur range (Everest range) and Numbur range with views of the Kathmandu valley and Shivapuri National Park.



Namo Buddha is about 40 km southeast of Kathmandu valley in Kavre District. According to legend, some 6000 years ago, prince Mahasatwo, discovered a tigress about to die starving with her five little babies. Mahasatwo cuts his body and feed the tigress leaving the bones which were brought back to the village and buried in the tomb. Later in about 3500 years, Gautam Buddha came to the village and declared that he was the reincarnation of prince Mahasatwo. Gautam Buddha renamed this village Namo Buddha which means Hommage to Buddha.

It is one of the most popular Buddhist destination and a center for tourism. The main festivals celebrated here are kartik purnima and Buddha Jayanti. We can see beautiful panoramic view of snow-capped mountains and landscapes of Panauti and Balthali. This is one of the holy palce where Buddha gave his life to the tigress showing love and compassion to the entire world.


Pharping Monastery

It lies 18 km south west of Kathmandu valley. On the way lies Chobhar gorge where the Bodhisatva Manjushree is said to have cut an incision to drain water out of the lake, which once covered the valley. There is a small but picturesque temple of Adinath on the top of hill with best panoramic view of snow-capped mountains.  Buddhist monastery is Pharping’s main attraction along with 17th-century temple of Goddess Bajra Yogini. Other fascinating sights here includes cave and a hand print of the Buddhist saint Padmasambhav on the rock as well as footprints of Guru Gorakhnath.



Swyambhunath lies 3 km west of Kathmandu. Swayambhunath is one of the holiest ancient Buddhist stupa in Nepal. Swayambhu means “self-existent one”. It was said to be built by King Manadeva in 460 A.D. as per the stone inscription. During the 13th century, Swayambhunath had developed into an important center of Buddhism. It is believed that kathmandu valley used to be a huge lake by the name of Nagadaha.  Bipashwi Buddha sowed the seed of lotus flower that bloomed in the middle of a lake. A lot of devotees come to pay homeage to the holy lotus.  Manjushree (God of knowledge and wisdom) came from China and paid homage to the holy lotus from the place called Nilgiri (which is present day Nagarkot). He drained the water out of the lake from the palce called Chovar. It is believed that he coverd the holy lotus with the dome and meditated.

Temple of Harati Ajima, Nagpur, Pratappur, Anantapur, Agnipur, Santipur, Vasupur, Bayupur, Bihars, and Chaityas, prayer flags(representing five cardinal elements of life) are the major highlights of Swayambhu.  Swayambhu is perhaps the best place to observe religious harmony in Nepal.



Appoxmately 6-7 km north east from center of Kathmandu, Boudhanath Stupa is commonly known as Boudha or Boudhanath (Lord of Wisdom). This is the largest stupa in the world with 120 ft in diameter, 1 hector in width, and 43.25 m in height with area of approxmately 6,756 sq meters. Many people believe that Bouddhanath was constructed in the 4th century by king Mandeva right after the death of Buddha. The stupa is said to entomb the remains (Astidhatu) of a Kashyapa Buddha. It is believed that Jyajima requested a Valley king for the donation of ground required to build a stupa. She was told to get as much place as she could cover with the buffalo skin. She was so clever that she cut a buffalo skin into thin strips. The king had no choice but to give her the land. It is said that Jyajima worked for four years and died then it took almost three years to complete the construction after her death, which was completed by one of her son.   Now we do have around 50 monsatries around boudhnath area.

We can buy colorful Thangkas, Tibetan jewellery, hand-woven carpets, masks, and khukuri (knives) in Boudha.  Smaller stupas are located at the base. Gompa monasteries, curio shops, and restaurants surround Bouddhanath. Restaurants with roof-top provide good food and excellent views of Bouddhanath. After 1959 Chinese invasion in Tibet ten  thousand of Tibetans settteled down here since then the temple has become one of the most important centers of Tibetan Buddhism. Today it remains an important place of pilgrimage and meditation for Tibetan Buddhists and local Nepalis, as well as a popular tourist destination. Losar (Tibetan New Year) and BuddhaJayanti are major festival celebrated in Boudhanath.
