The Tamil area is the busiest neighbourhood in Kathmandu. It is the most densely populated neighborhood in Nepal and even South Asia. It is also the most abundant nightlife in Nepal, but the crowd is also very uncomfortable.
It is reported that only tourist special vehicles, water supply vehicles, security vehicles and ambulances can enter Tamil after obtaining special permission. However, there are still many cars that will enter narrow neighborhoods.
But in the Tamil area, only two vehicles are free to enter and exit, one is a bicycle, but a tricycle. Bicycles are generally used by hawkers to sell fruit, while tricycles are used to pull guests. When taxis are banned from entering the Tamil area, tricycles become the main means of transportation for tourists.
But the price of a tricycle is not cheap!

Nepal, seeing her first sight, may not fall in love with her so easily, however, the more you understand it, the more you want to be close to her. . .
The taxi here seems to be still in the early 90s of China, with a small body, dilapidated interiors, and dusty windows. From the airport to the hotel, about 30 minutes by car, when the car left the airport, I realized that I really came to the legendary Kathmandu, the air, the dust. . . Pedestrians walked calmly on the narrow sidewalks. The people sitting in front of the store were two or three people. They smothered the dust, motorcycles, taxis, buses, and piled them into a pile, blocking the road.
Originally thought that dust was the biggest enemy of the city, but found that a heavy rain poured out the dust, but it brought another problem. . . Muddy road. The whole city was not covered with a thick layer of ash, but it was covered with a layer of mud, and later discovered that this is their simplest existence.
Tamil District, this is a very flavored neighborhood, a small and crowded trail, intertwined, here is an old town in Kathmandu, no luxury buildings, only the mark of time.
In the Tamil area, getting lost is a common thing. On both sides of these labyrinths, there are densely packed small buildings, the buildings are not high, and one by one window squats, looking up, there will always be many People squatting on the window sill and looking back and forth to the crowded streets, it seems to be part of their lives.
The famous Tamil district of the Kathmandu Center is the same as the Khao San Road in Bangkok, Thailand. Every day, tens of thousands of tourists travel to and from the big and small streets and hutongs of the Tamil area. Whether it is day or night, there is always a noisy voice, and its all day long. Venues along the street, set up large and small stalls, selling a variety of drinks, fresh fruit, as well as Nepalese specialties and food.
However, in addition to being an ideal choice for accommodation, there are actually many interesting things to explore in the Tamil area. Around the lively streets, there are also many interesting houses scattered, as well as some turbid areas with a relatively chaotic environment. These places, although not traditional tourist attractions, capture the human landscape and record the moving moments. Those beautiful and unforgettable faces are memories that are unforgettable on the road.
The Tamil area is home to tourists from all over the world. There are many tourist agencies, hotels, restaurants, craft shops, bookstores, foreign exchange shops and other tourist facilities. It is called “Little Hong Kong in Jiadu”. Visitors can buy Nepalese ethnic handicrafts as well as hiking and hiking equipment, making it a great place for a relaxing trip.
