What people are saying:

I don’t know how this street is different from most of the streets in Kathmandu. It is very crowded. Cars, pedestrians and motorcycles are robbing the houses on both sides of the road that are not to be used. There is also a feeling of being abandoned after the earthquake. There are more shops and vendors, and it is very lively at night

    Not a very happening place

    This place seems to have been past its best. I would rather go to Thamel, its much more lively and chaotic 9not sure if thats a good thing!) Dont recommend
