Street building in Kathmandu Thamel

Thamel, the city’s primary tourist hub, is renowned for its vibrant nightlife with numerous bars and shops. However, the sandy streets posed a problem as every passing motorcycle or car stirred up clouds of dust. After an article in Kathmandu’s international newspaper raised the issue, prompt action was taken, and within two days, the sandy streets were swiftly tarred, resolving the problem.
