Where should you stay in Kathmandu? Short and sweet....Thamel. This is the main tourist hub of Kathmandu that has so much to offer in regards to food, shopping and nightlife. Kathmandu is a surprisingly large city and although it still does have rebuilding to do from the 2015 earthquake don't let this stop you from fully emersing yourself in the beautiful and organic Nepalese culture. The locals are just superb and the food is to die for - you absolutely must try momos (like a Nepalese dumpling). Thamel is a good place to base yourself whilst doing day trips around the city and seeing all of the sites. Take a look below at some great hotels to stay in the hub of this bustling city.
