Tansen Palpa is one of the most popular tourist Place in Nepal for Sightseeing. Tansen is situated on the lap of Shreenagar hill at an altitude of 1343 meters height. Tansen Municipality is a administrative center of Palpa District in the “hills” of western Nepal which is situated on the highway between Butwal and Pokhara. Tansen, city of Palpa is located on the crest of the Mahabharat Range or Lesser Himalaya overlooking the valley of the Kaligandaki River to the north.
For nearly 300 years, from the early 16th century, Palpa was the headquarters of the old Sen Kingdom. A walled area in the center of town that you enter through a huge door, Mul Dhoka (main gate) is the old palace grounds and the only real evidence of this former kingdom, however Tansen lies at 1343 metres and will feel wonderfully cool if you have just left the Terai or come in from India. Just to the north of the town the forested hill of Srinagar provides views of the surrounding valleys and the longest panoramic ranges of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains.
