Loved Thamel, the traffic is crazy when you first get here but you soon learn how to walk with it. There is pollution but you need to expect that. People do beg but only because they have to so give up some money to those who really need it, we have more than we will ever need.

Thamel is always bustling with activities. Good Hotels, guest Houses, restaurants, Shopkeepers smiling but you have to negotiate prices with them.Nice food at not so good price though.quite a experience to walk through lanes of Thamel.

Thamel is a busy shopping area with a lot of shops selling everything that you would need. Bargaining at these shops is the normal way to purchase in this market & can be quite stressful. In case you are interested in Jewels then you should definitely visit a shop called "Monte Carlo" they have the best selection.

Bazaar atmosphere. Reeked of 'being touristy'. Good bargains though. Purchased pashmina. Had supper in a lovely bar.
