Hi DeuceWoo

I emailed a few friends in KTM to confirm the price of laundry: three have stated the price of laundry is 100 rupees per kg not 50 and this increase is not seasonal but permanent (well, you know what I mean). They also confirmed there are no laundries in Thamel.

Tonnes of places in Thamel do it for 100NPR per 1kg of laundry. For a higher rate you can get your clothes back within 3 hours. Usually it'll take 24 hours though.

Hotels do it for a very high rate. Best bet is a small shop in Thamel - they do a good job for cheap!

Do they wash them in a machine or is it some Didi hand washing?

Most services will send the clothes to a laundry with machines though it's possible some places, particularly hotels will hand wash small loads. I would ask if you have a preference. Either way, the process can be harsh on delicate fabrics.
