We all love the hype surrounding Thamel. it is a real tourist magnet but the local vendors respect your wishes. Sure they are in the game of selling but it is done with good grace and spirit. They dive from one stall to another , in and out of shops then if you show an interest they often ask you to follow them down through a back lane and up the stairs into another small room that contains a variety of all kinds of gems! We always stayed in small groups but felt perfectly safe. It was a fun way to share a little camaraderie and money around. Nothing seemed too much but the haggling was all part of the deal!
