This is a busy shopping district adjacent to Kathmandu Durbar Square. It is very busy crowded with people, cars and motorbikes. It is a good place to taste the life of locals in Kathmandu where we could see different vendors selling wide range of stuffs. In our opinion, it is not a conducive place to do shopping since it is busy and chaotic. We were there just to feel the local livelihoods as part of city life in Kathmandu, so it is perfectly fine for us. Suggest to walk to this place since the road is extremely congested. It is walkable from Thamel district on the way to Durbar Square. Not difficult to navigate using Google Map if you purchase the prepaid data SIM card at the airport with fees of NPR800 for 5GB valid for 28 days.

If you are in Kathmandu, don't miss this place to visit, as it is a color market near Thamel. if you are in Nepal to explore real authentic things then Indra Chok is the one you should go and explore. good luck.

I had a guide from safe holiday adventure from Kathmandu, he helped me a lot and gave info about that places, if you are looking for a guide also to visit Indra chok then i would say the contract with safe holiday adventure pvt. ltd or mr.gauli santosh. have a great time enjoy.

this busy market area was filled with loads of interesting shops and restaurants. The Lassi Shop and the Samosa Shop called TipTop were the highlights of the area. The Lassi shop sells the best Lassi i have ever tasted.

An antique and historical street. Ask for the best masala tea which is being a lane where beads are sold. The best I have tasted and extremely cheap . Take your time to look for the old homes and temples hidden behind the wares .

We wondered around the streets of Thamel abd walked right into this shopping area. There are so many shops all around, from textile, to pottery, to other types of souvenirs.

Plenty of shops, some temples, and a lot of crowd - that characterizes the place, which good for shopping because the prices are meant for locals, not essentially for visitors, so are more realistic.

One can find Nepali culture well carved in windows of buildings, not only in the temples but also in private houses. It is a point of attraction not only for tourists but also that it is a centre of market of traditional ornaments, apparels. If you are buying something, be careful to select the genuine items from artificial ones and do not forget to bargain.

Indrachowk is in the heart of old Kathmandu city and just 5 minutes walk from Kathmandu Durbar Square.
It is the commercial hub of the old city and the local market is colorful,crowded and vibrant.
It sells all possible things but it is just interesting to walk through it to enjoy the experience.
Indrachowk area has temples and traditional stores that are unique.If you enjoy walking through a market then you'll love it.
It also has a unique "Pote" bazaar.Pote are beads worn by married hindu women and made by muslims.Not too far is Machindra bahal temple,worshipped by Hindus and Buddhists.Further on is the Annapurna temple and Ason chowk.One can continue walking through Tyoda and Thahiti and reach Thamel.The whole walk can be done in an hour but it is recommended that you stop,explore and enjoy the walk.
If you want a completely different atmosphere and a more local ambience then visit the area in the early morning when the vendors are selling vegetables and fruits.

Fun to see all the wares set up for sale in this big open market space. Don't forget to bargain as you enjoy the Nepalese tourist lures.
