Depends on what you mean by “Market”

The Chinese market which is a collection of small shops to the north and east of Kathmandu Durbar Square sells just about everything.

There is, or at least used to be (and I don't know if it still happens), a huge open-air market at least weekly in Ratna Park

There are;

Some are listed above and another big option is The Kathmandu Mall. It's quite big shopping center with many things available to purchase.

The one Alanyeti might be talking is still existed; but that is kind of street selling.

All the best

The Kathmandu is changed. It is not the same Kathmandu as it was 2 years before. There are many shopping malls in these days in walking distance from major hotels.

Some major malls are


World Trade Center

Civil Malls etc.

Have a good time ahead.

You can try at Bhat Bhateni Mall and the oldest Mall of Kathmandu is Vishal Bazar at New Road, Vishal Bazar was the only Mall in KTM during my first visit to Kathmandu in 1985.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the Brikuthimandap yet. This is a big market just behind the Nepal Tourism Board. Lot's of stalls, don't forget to bargain though.

Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, has a population of 949,468 in the city, and1,687,102 in the metropolitan area.

Well, Kathmandu may not be one of the largest City in the world, but for sure, it has all the things that a capital city has. From Movie hall to restaurants, to disco, to schools and colleges.

Some major mall in Katmandu are:

City Center,World Trade Center,Civil Malls.
