Tansen is an undiscovered gem. High above the Kali Gandaki River on the road between Butwal and Pokhara, staying in this charming little town is a very worthwhile detour for a few days. Full of history, this old Newar town with its steep cobblestone streets is virtually traffic-free. The traditional wooden Newari houses with their intricately carved windows line the narrow roads. You can hear the looms clacking as families weave the famous Dhakar fabric that Tansen is known all over Nepal for.

Most people come here planning to spend one or two nights and end up staying four or five. There is plenty to see and to do here. Take in the beautiful mountain views from Srinagar Hill, explore the fascinating history of Tansen, visit temples, go hiking, drink good coffee, shop for local handicrafts made only here, and live with locals staying in one of the comfortable and hospitable Community Homestays.
