Kathmandu’s Once Vibrant Markets Now Echo with Emptiness [Photos]

The once bustling markets of Kathmandu Valley now stand eerily empty, marked by a proliferation of ‘to-let’ signs on shuttered storefronts. From small shops to grand malls, businesses are dwindling, creating a landscape dotted with vacant spaces.

In the heart of the city’s business districts, commercial and office boards have given way to ubiquitous ‘to-let’ notices. What were once vibrant shopping malls now sit deserted, their shutters adorned with phone numbers advertising available spaces.

These malls, previously vibrant hubs of commerce, now struggle for foot traffic, a stark contrast to their former bustling days. The transformation is palpable across the capital, where even the smallest shops find it challenging to attract customers amidst this economic downturn.
