by AlettaCrofton

My travel agent booked us into the Grand Hotel, Tahachal, Kathmandu. Does anyone know if this is within walking distance to Thamel?

Tahachal is about 3k away from Thamel so I would say that it would be OK to walk by day but I would have reservations about walking back at night !!
You are about 2k west of Durbar Square and a similar 2k south if The Monkey Temple which is ok, but you aren’t really near anywhere else !!
If I were you I would opt for Thamel if you want to be in the centre of things !!
Good Luck

From Tahachal to Thamel is around 20 mins walk. You can also take a cab takes you around same time to reach Thamel as the cabs goes around the city to reach Thamel. If you like less crowded and noisy place Tahachal is better. Welcome to Nepal..

Travel Tips for Kathmandu

the Newari people

by josephescu

Out of the numerous ethnic groups in Nepal (Pahari, Sherpa, Tamang, Kiranti, Limbu, Gurung, etc), the Newari represent less than 5 %.
The term Newar applies roughly to the people who inhabited Kathmandu valley and its peripheries before the unification of Nepal and speaking Nepal Bhasa ("Newari" according to Statistics Nepal) or the languages progenitor of Nepal Bhasa.

The Newars form an urban society with highly developed craftsmanship and social structures, which reflected in the complexes around the Kathmandu valley and in other cities around Nepal (Tansen, Bandipur). It is the Newari temples and architecture which are the most impressive throughout all Nepal.
Newar practice both Buddhism (85%) and Hinduism.(15%) It is believed that the Newar were originally Buddhists but the long historical process of Sanskritization (adoption of Hindu rituals), led to the development of the Newar’s unique syncretic tradition.

Holi

by nepalgoods

Around fullmoon in March Holi is celebrated in Nepal like similar festivals around Asia. Bands of young men are running through the streets of Kathmandu throwing water and coloured powder at people. Unfortunately there are boys, who use smelly water and varnish paint. If you go on the streets on this day, then be prepared to return to your hotel completely soaked and smelly! I did it. The weather was sunny but cold. My camera got almost wet. I was shivering with cold, when I returned to my room. I stood under the hot shower for about an hour with all my clothes on. Afterwards I threw my t-shirt away.

Hindu temples above Pashupatinath

by mtncorg

Most of the people, pilgrims and tourists, are to be found along the Bagamati River or in the temples on the western side of the river. Steps lead up from the eastern side of the river, too, and by going up you get into another warren of little temples that are much quieter and more serene. Lots of monkeys will keep you company as you wander about.

BUS

by cancian

To Pokhara you can take only a bus.
There are a lot af company but best one is Green Line and bus station is front of Royal Palace.
Your Guest House can help you.
Take care about Bus Company name.
Green Line is more expensive but service is better. (10U$D)
About 300Rs with another Company and need 9 hours.
Ask your Hotel for road condition because can be very bad and may be you must walk for 30/45 minutes

Even if you don't stay here

by ozalp about Yak and Yeti Hotel's restaurant

We had breakfast or lunch in our hotel several times. The restaurant of this hotel is quite good. I tasted soups, grilled meats, vegetables, salads of this restaurant. Almost everything was delicious but soups were not my favorite. Grilled meat was quite good. They cook the meat you picked or the pasta and its sauce you wanted instantly during lunch time. They had a Oktoberfest theme but I couldn’t taste the beers since we were always in a hurry. Grilled meat, salads, fruits...
Their buffet lunch was great!
