Shopping Tansen

A good range of food items are available in Tansen now including 'bideshi' or foreigner food, items like – chicken, cheese, Pringles, coke, bacon, sausages, branded (Kelloggs) cereals, oreo biscuits, chocolate, nescafe / fresh local coffee, imported tea bags, powdered milk, etc, etc. The range of items is not as comprehensive as in Kathmandu, but the choice is improving.Toiletries – deodorant, toilet rolls, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, etc are all available here, but not always the same brand as back home


In Kathmandu most things you know from back home can be purchased and often the brand you are used to. If what you want is not in Tansen there is a good chance it will be available in Kathmandu.
