Tribhuvan International Airport is located about 6 km from the city center, offering domestic and international flights.
Thamel is a popular tourist destination in the Kathmandu Valley. Thamel has been the epicentre of the tourist industry in Kathmandu Valley for over two decades. Even though it has been referred to as the 'ghetto' by some but for most travellers this is indeed a tourist haven. Thamel is ideally-sized, ideally-located and ideally-organised to make it the perfect base from which the discovery of the 'real' Nepal can be planned. The real Nepal is not too far away either. Some of Kathmandu's traditional, historical and cultural must-sees: Ason Bazaar, Durbar Square and Swayambhunath are a mere 10-30 minutes easy walk away from Thamel.
Even though through the constant influx of tourist from every part of the world Thamel still harbours a vibrant ethnic culture, practised by its core population of the Newar people who have been living here since time immemorial. In recent years, more and more local residents from other parts of Kathmandu are being attracted to Thamel's myriad attractions and services. The ghetto is no longer the haunt of tourists alone and is going native indeed.
