One of the most popular street market in Kathmandu is Ason Bazaar. Located at just south of Thathiti Chowk, Ason is one of the most antique yet equally active market in the valley. It is a typical example of Asian market in Nepal. This traditional market consists of a lot of temples and shrines. The narrow streets are full of shops, people walking all around and vehicles passing by. This busy street has everything to sell from vegetable spices to electronics goods, clothes, antique shops and much more. The market gets into the work from early dawn to late dusk. The famous temples to visit here are The 3 storey Annapurna Temple, Ganesh Temple, Narayan Temple and Celestial Fish.
The major activity to do here is to snap photos that will showcase the traditional Newari people in shops, observe and enjoy the techniques of buying selling and experience the busy local market. Ason is also a gateway to Thamel and Kathmandu Durbar Square. Walking through Ason and capturing the typical shops and sellers through your camera lens is a fun thing to do. But if you don’t like crowd and want to get away from hustling environment then just get a taxi to Thamel or to Kathmandu Durbar Square. But if you want to experience this traditional market, explore the typicality of this street and smell the special Nepalese spices around the street then you must add Ason visit in your scheldule. The Ason Market/Bazaar is a part of Nepal Tour Packages in Kathmandu valley.
