- Read my full guide to Thamel
Nearly every store front in Thamel will have something popular for tourists. These will include Trekking agencies, trekking gear, tours, restaurants, bakeries, cafes, bars, Nepalese clothing, souvenir stores, laundrettes, mini-supermarkets, couriers and hotels.
Do note that Thamel, being touristy, is not the cheapest of places to purchase many of the following. However, for many, it is the most convenient.
Do try Paradise booksellers for your second hand or new books before going to the more popular Pilgrims who, due to a fire, have moved further down the street from their decades old location.
Best pizza in Nepal still belongs to Fire & Ice.
Cheapest eats go to Star Momo and McDonalds (no not the fast food chain).
Cheap steaks belong to Crazy Burger while more moderately to expensive good steaks are found in Everest Steak House.
Finding you way around Thamel might seem a little confusing at first as there are no street signs. Just use store fronts as landmarks.
Meanwhile You can download and print a map to Thamel or use the map above as a guide alongside the full travel guide to Thamel.
