About Thamel in Kathmandu

Thamel is the hotspot for tourists in Kathmandu. Thamel neighbourhood first became popular during the 1970-80s when hippie culture took over Kathmandu. Unconventional travellers, living out of their backpacks came in the Nepalese capital in hordes, and they all made Thamel their resident hub while in the city. Over the decades, Thamel Kathmandu turned into a bustling centre for shopping, eating or simply strolling around. In 2017, Thamel was declared as a vehicle-free area to get rid of the honking and make the place a safer one for pedestrians. There are around 5-6 main streets in Thamel Nepal, and dozens of other veins and arteries stretching out in different directions. In these streets, one can expect to find literally anything and everything under the roof.

Shopping:

Thamel bazaar is by far the busiest place in Kathmandu on any given day (or night). From exotic bakeries and confectioners to trekking gears, from small curio and handicraft shops to garment and bookstores, from travel agencies to bars and restaurants of all types – shopping in Thamel is nothing short of a small event in itself. Bookstores are a big thing in Thamel. Paradise Bookshop is a vintage one, which trades old books for new ones and has a good collection. For shopping trekking equipment, one can visit North Face Store or the Tibetan-owned Sonam Trekking Store.

Nightlife:

Thamel nightlife is something to look forward to the most in Kathmandu. After the day’s sightseeing and afternoon’s shopping sessions are over, the tourists in Kathmandu head towards the various bars, clubs and casinos in Thamel. Rum Doodle is an iconic place that has been visited by every Everest climber ever, starting with Edmund Hillary himself. It is like visiting a shrine for the Mountaineers. Sam’s Bar is another favourite. Funky Buddha and Tome and Jerry’s are great choices too for live music.

Another thing to do in Thamel is natural therapy. There are multiple Thamel massage parlours, spas and salons which cater to tourists for a quick foot massage or a complete back massage to fight jet-lags.

      We enjoyed our small trip to Kathmandu and Nagarkot. Bhagwat made good arrangements for the trip. His drivers are good and professional. Bhagwat also arranged for our Everest flight at the last moment. We loved the location of Katmandu Arts hotel. It is right in the midst of the market area.

      The experience of our visit to kathmandu and pokhara was really good. The only issue was the hotel room during our stay in Kathmandu was too small. Overall the trip was awesome.

    • Trip to kathmandu

      It was an excellent and the most memorable trip ever for us. We travel to various countries every year for vacation. This time we have chosen Nepal (based on our current budget). We traveled to Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Chitwan. Kathmandu was so good. Hotel Mahadev people were a bit lethargic fellows. Laughing on us all the times (I don't know why...!). Next, in Pokhara the hotel where we stayed was Splendid View. V Nice hotel. Hospitality from the crew is awesome. Particularly, Abhilash and Eeswar were very nice people in the hotel. Finally, we stayed in Hotel Royal Safari, where we felt a bit disappointed. This is due to the reasons that the ambiance is not so good (Many people were drinking liquor, smoking around us). We were a bit terrified due to the situation as ours was a family trip (3 Couples and 2 Kids). Also, in the hotel royal safari AC was not properly working and furthermore bedsheets were not clean. The hotel wala charged us 12,500 NPR for Kumrose Jeep Safari (hyderabad zoo will be far better than that), which was not so exciting as we thought. Overall, the first two hotels were so good. Therefore, it was a great trip. Really, the agent Kunal ji was so polite. We were a team of Eight (08) and have different opinions for everybody as far as the trip is concerned. Every time, Kunal was changing the itineraries without any irritation. That was really awesome feeling what I felt. We got some other quotes from different agents, even from some Nepali Agents. But, I have chosen Trip Master only because of Kunal ji. Really, he kept the trust that we kept on him throughout the trip. Special Thanks to Kunal Ji and especially Me along with my wife decided to go with Travel Triangle (if possible Kunal ji again) in our future trips. New people may feel scared a bit to go with this agency. But, I assure you to please go ahead for experiencing budget friendly and awesome trips. Further, we should thank Raushan Kumar Ji for his timely approach and concern on us. He was calling us regularly to verify our satisfaction. Really Thanking him from our side for his tremendous support. Finally, we would like to Thank an excellent driver of the era Binda Ji for bearing us till the end :). He was an excellent and the most experienced driver. The best part of him is his smile that he carried always throughout the trip. Thank you Binda Ji. Definitely, your trip will be memorable and go ahead without any hesitation. It is the best travel agency. I will definitely go with this agency for the next time undoubtedly. - Dr. Raghu Chandra Garimella

      We had booked nepal trip for 7N - 8D package through traveltriangle ( snowyoda agent). The hotels given were very good with good staff and services. Overall experience was decent The main points of concern 1. Horrible car service provided. Car was in good condition but faced lot of trouble with driver. He was not answering anything we asked, was rough driver and didnot bother much about taking care of passangers needs. He also didnot take us to some of the mentioned itiniary places 2. It was already informed that we prefer jain meal. Some hotels, we had to really face lot of troubles getting jain meal 3. Support from snowyoda representative was good but we didnot get much satisfactory solution to the driver issue. 1. Nagarkot was good location. We had a beautiful view from our room and had good time on our wedding anniversary there 2. Hotel staff at kathmandu hotel was very caring and helpful. Helped us wilth all our needs

      Brilliant trip! I'd suggest you stay at Pokhara for longer than Kathmandu. Great natural beauty and the Himalayas make everything worthwhile. The hotels were wonderful for our budget and the drive to various places was memorable.

    Rum Doodle and Sam’s Bar are the most crowded places in Thamel. Funky Buddha is a popular haunt too.

     

    Big vehicles are not allowed inside the Thamel marketplace. So parking is out of the question. Public transport should be availed while going to this place.

     

    Nepal Plaza, The North Face and Best Shopping Centre are some of the bigger places to shop in Thamel. You can go to Nepal Handloom Silk Industry for some great apparel items.
