The small Himalayan village is a stop right at the start of the hike 'Around the Annapurnas'.

My suggestion:
Bring your swimming costume - you will be able to swim in the thermal waters in various places along the trek, especially in Tal!

 I only stopped off for a tea in the small village of Tal - a shame considering its hot springs, which must be very welcome after walking for a few hours at altitude. Incidentally, on the hike I noticed that many people arrange the start of their walk around these swimming spots - they make sure they sleep in villages where they will be able to relax their muscles in these hot-water pools (Bhulbhule, Syange, Jagat, Chame, Tal etc.). Perhaps this could be a route for organising your trek around the Annapurnas?

The entrance to the village, between rivers and waterfalls, would be great were it not for having to walk for quite a while along a road for motorised vehicles... As for the village itself, it is essentially made up of hotels and restaurants, something which you will notice is the same in all the villages you come across along the trek.

I should add that I visited Nepal before the 2015 earthquake, so it is possible that the place has changed a lot since.
