Thamel is the tourist district of Kathmandu. It is a full Wi-fi zone in Nepal. Thamel is hub of budget traveler, bars, restaurants, small hotels, narrow streets and nightlife. Thamel is distinguished by its narrow streets crowded with various shops and vendors.

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.

Thamel is not the kind of place a family traveler would arrive and feel of the area is a bit sleezy at times. However the low cost accommodations offered here makes sure that tourists arrive here in large numbers and keep the area buzzing.
