The markets south of Thamel are the most famous and ancient in Nepal – everything is wholesaled and retailed. Many walk it, but few see the design. Explore the market with us and you will understand how it functions!

This market walk was developed to help travellers understand how the local market systems work in Nepal. Within this two hour walk, you see everything from residential areas, temples, readymade wear markets, wedding markets, rock salt, chillies, vegetables, dried herbs, bead necklaces and even a market for dentures!
"Suman was a terrific guide, knowledgable and easy to talk to. Thanks for a great tour"

Definitely something that opens your eyes with something you had not noticed before!
The walk begins from one of the streets in Thamel, meanders into old Kathmandu, through residential lanes,then onto the various markets - one by one - and ends with a tea at a Stupa back close to Thamel.
A real worthwhile way to spend two hours in Kathmandu.
