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.

      Sumit exceptionally planned the trip to ensure that all four members had a pleasant and memorable stay. The hotels were relaxing, calming and warm to us. They considered all our requests. The lakeside retreats spa was splendid and a must to do especially after travel 6+ hours of travel. Everest flight is a must for all tourists and the sunrise in Sarangkot.

    • Trip to Nepal

      We traveled to Nepal during May 2019 end and thoroughly enjoyed the package provided by Nepal Patenga Tours and Travels. Mr.Himal the owner personally saw to it that the journey was as comfortable as possible. Our Driver Bhim was thoroughly knowledgeable and helpful in all ways. We travelled to Katmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan, Nagarkot. The sunrise across the Annapurna range at Sarankot was the highlight of the trip. This is my 4th trip with travel Triangle and like always the trip was excellent. P.s : The himalayan ranges are best viewed during the Winters.

    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.
