A hobo would feel at home in Thamel, fondly called the hippie ghetto of Kathmandu. Thamel attracts a number of people-watchers, bargain-seekers and lazy-strollers from all over. A great place for souvenir shopping and an even better way to feel the pulse of Nepal’s bustling capital,  Thamel is always buzzing with activity.

There are many restaurants in Thamel that serve traditional and continental cuisine, although prices tend to be significantly higher than in non-tourist areas. Food hygiene is generally better, despite the overall lack of sanitation in Nepal.

Thamel also acts as the pre-base camp for mountaineers. It boasts a wide range of mountaineering gear shops, foreign money exchange booths, pubs, clubs, and nightlife along with the numerous travel agents and guest houses. All in all, Thamel is home to a wide range of the Nepalese population for entertainment and employment purposes.
