I enjoyed it to walk the 2 KM from our Kathmandu Guesthouse in Thamel to the Durbar Square, the centre of the old city.
So idi several times. Mostly I took the road along the small square, Thahiti Tole with its stupa and Shiva temple, and from there south to Indra Chowk, with a courtyard named after the vedic deity Indra.
During this walk I met a rich world of people, shops, streetstalls, streetvendors, temples, stupa's, shrines, all kind of architecture. Every time I discovered new things.

Address: Kathmandu 44600, Nepal
Directions: About 2 km north of Durbar Square in the very heart of Kathmandu
