Tugged away it seems like not too many travelers make it to this place. Other than the beautiful building and its surroundings there not much to see. But then you will probably enjoy the nice walk to get here. I continued north crossing the river and had one of the best trekking days on my two months stay.

This deserted old palace makes a great day trip from Tansen. A 3 hour walk largely downhill finds you by this impressive ruin right by the Kali Gandaki river. Terrific views of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri as you go down through villages and lush forest. Harder coming back up but an exhilarating round trip.

Beautiful place and great day hike from Tansen. It is a long trek so wise to hitch a lift on way back. Superbly beautiful place unforgettable.

Built in 1892 by General KS Rana to honor his late wife. Set in a very lonely hard to reach spot, it is beautiful from a distance but run down. Currently being restored as a tourism spot, let's hope they keep the place up and do it justice in the refurbishing.

We had a hike from Hotel Srinagar Tansen downhill 700 meters to the bank of Kaligandaki river. Luckily we also found Saligram stone (Black Fossil) on the bank. This is built in memory of wife of the Present Governor of Palpa Kingdom. Hiking was excellent.

It takes 1-2 hours walking from Tansen. It's a nice walk inside small villages and the Ranighat Palace is located in a very beautiful area with a river, a nice iron bridge and some small restaurants.

We walked from Tansen via the path starting from the NE side of Shreenagar Hill. It went through beautiful forest and fields before connecting with the jeep track down to the Palace. We saw Langur monkeys in the jungle and lots of interesting birds. The Palace is in a bit of disrepair but they are working on renovating it. It... More

An amazing walk down but an intense walk back up. The palace is under restoration but you can still walk around inside. It's actually quite interesting to see the run down part next to the restored. It is all being done by hand so it might take some time. Make sure you follow the florescent yellow spray paint markers and... More
