About
Walk the ancient trade route to Kathmandu's great medieval bazaar, exploring an unusual but underrated part of the old city with Nepali writer Rabi Thapa on this self-guided GPS audio tour. Thamel, Kathmandu’s designated tourist quarter, began as a medieval site of Buddhist learning connected to the now-defunct trans-Himalayan route between India and Tibet. Your tour traces these beginnings from Sohrakhutte in north Kathmandu before passing through Bhagwan Bahal, Narsingh Chowk, Chusya Bahal, Shree Gha and the marketplace of Asan. You will visit monuments old and new, accompanied by a fantastical cast of Tibetan demons, flying stupas and tooth goddesses as well as the equally adventurous set of warrior kings, traders, artisans and hippies who made Nepal the fantastic place that it is today.
