"Thamel, at Kathmandu." Top 5 Page for this destination Thamel Area Tip by goutammitra

Thamel Area, Kathmandu: 18 reviews and 26 photos

Thamel is the main hotel, shopping and Entertainment district of Kathmandu. This is the area where most of the hotels located mostly budget hotels and also it is one of the places where you can find mountaneering, Camping and trekking gears on rent or purchase. There are about hundred hotels located in Thamel. Recently lots of restaurants and dancing bars have also come up, where Nepalese youth spend their evenings.
Shopping is also there but most of the things sold out there are very expensive as compared to Calcutta or India. We did not find anything worth buying except for T shirts, or small souvenir of genuine Nepalese origin.

Address: Kathmandu 44600, Nepal
Directions: Thamel is the main hotel district, just ask anybody.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
