World Peace Pagoda: Shanti Stupa

Opened in 1999 atop a hill simply south of Phewa Tal, the Stupa is that the 1st Peace temple to be created in the Asian country and offers nice views of the Annapurna Mountains, as well as slow down, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, and Annapurna III. this is often a good place to observe the sunrise or sunset over Pokhara. the best thanks to getting there's to require a taxi to the bottom of the Peace temple.
 If you wish to travel on foot, you need to 1st get to the southern aspect of Phewa Tal, either by walking around the lake or athletics across the lake. Then take a really steep hike (no switchbacks) through the forest (watch out for leeches throughout the monsoon) or from the road that passes Devi's Fall, turning right at the top of Chhorepatan. 
To hike to the top: From the little fork road behind the work in Damside, go south 200m, past a couple of hotels to the road bridge over the massive canal. Go southwest on a smaller road to the cable bridge over the creek, notice the "peace" check in bridge anchor cement. Cross, then go up steps to a ceremony, thence main walking path to left on rice fields. 200m to a little temple and water faucet. Notice another peace sign and arrows inform zag zig up behind the faucet. Follow the zig zig path through the forest to steps and continue up them to the highest of the ridge spur, follow the USA vogue tree "blazes" (notches within the tree trunks) where things get confusing. Follow the big path through the pretty forest with monkeys now and then. Warning: there are reports of a couple of robberies. Reach wooded ridge high at a mud hole/saddle, thence path crosses over to the side, through a lot of nice forests. seek for tree markers. bit by bit up till you reach the open main ridge, obtainable of Peace temple. a couple of little cafes and a building here then steps up to high. It ought to take around 35min from the hotels close to the road bridge over the massive canal.

About Tansen of Palpa

Once the seat of a powerful kingdom, the hill town of TANSEN (Palpa) now seems little more than a bazaar town stranded in the hills. Tourism comes a low second to trading, yet slowly, almost reluctantly, Tansen yields its secrets: clacking Dhaka looms glimpsed through doorways; the Himalayan view from Srinagar Hill; the fine day hikes and bike rides in the surrounding countryside. If you’re coming from India, Tansen makes a far more authentic introduction to Nepal than Pokhara, and at an altitude of 1370m, it’s usually pleasantly cool after the heat of the plains. From Pokhara, the 120 tortuous kilometers of the Siddhartha Highway provide a splendid show-opener.

Under its old name of Palpa (by which many Nepalis still refer to it today), Tansen was one of the seats of the Sen princes, who may have been a local Magar clan or possibly Rajput prince fleeing the Muslim invasions of India. Either way, it was from his base in Palpa, that the dynasty’s fabled second king, Mukunda Sen, raided Kathmandu in the early sixteenth century. He is said to have carried off two sacred Bhairab masks, only to be cut down by a plague sent by the Pashupatinath linga. After Mukunda Sen's death, in round 1533, his kingdom was divided between his sons and weakened. Successors formed an alliance with Gorkha, which bought them breathing space when the latter began conquering territory in the mid-eighteenth century. Aided by the friendly Indian Rajah of Oudh, to which it held itself feudally subject, Palpa staved off the inevitable until 1806 when it became the last territory to be annexed to modern Nepal. Tansen remains the headquarters of Palpa District, however, and retains a strong sense of its own dignity.
