    Thamel Area - MapPoint Nepal: Good selection of posters

    by Saagar Updated Mar 11, 2010

    MapPoint Nepal in the turn of the road just up from Tom&Jerry's carries the best selection posters that I have found in Kathmandu. That is, if you like mountain panorama posters.

    What to buy: There are some spectacular Himalayan sceneries to choose among. Beware of quality, they fade quickly if hanging exposed to sunlight when you return home.
    Get them rolled up in a cardboard tube for the trip home.

    What to pay: 150-1500 Rs depending on size and quality.
