“It's a makeshift town”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Created to cater to tourists, this part of Kathmandu is a must see. Full of local craft retailers, restaurants, bars and night clubs, it really is an experience.

“Crowded, not so clean”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

The title says it all. We decided to take a hotel out of Thamel and I was happy we did that. Shopping can be fun there but otherwise not much to offer.

“Very Hungry people”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

People come chasing you just to buy their materials. Too much tough to walk through the road without being tortured.
