About Shopping Guide In Nepal
Nepal is not only about natural beauty and historical significance. There are more than enough places to encourage the shopaholic in you and take home lovely Nepal souvenirs from the trip. One can explore the shops and marketplaces of Nepal to find the best Nepal shopping places to buy from. More or less all the important shops here have the same items on sale – the difference is in the standard and quality and the trick is to know which the best things to buy in Nepal are and which are not worth the money.
Here is a list of what to bring from Nepal to your home that would be a cherished item for life.
1. Handicraft items
Nepal has one of the best handicraft scenes in Asia. The creations have a distinct influence on Tibetan culture, which cannot be denied. Wood is a popular material used in Nepalese handicrafts. One can see how the old Newari culture preferred wood in the various durbar squares of the country. One can buy wooden showpieces, small furniture items, cane baskets, replicas of temples and deities from Nepali markets.
2. Pashmina Wool
High quality wool from Nepal is used in the warm garments sold in Nepal. Pashmina is native to Nepal and made from fibre right off the skin of mountain goats and spun into delicate weaves. Pick your favourite winter-wear from the emporiums – jacket, cardigan, gloves, sweater, socks – and you will get the smooth warm touch of real pashmina wool.
3. Silverwares and gem jewellery
Silver jewellery and other items like utensils, cutlery, boxes and talismans, are an important part of Nepalese art and craft. One can find silver earrings, bangles, necklaces or finger rings of the best quality, often with stones of solid colours, which is a Tibetan touch. A mixture of Newari and Tibetan style in the silver pieces has made them quite at vogue. Nepal is also known for gem jewellery items.
4. Mithila Painting
It is a common local tradition for women to paint scenes involving animals, trees and everyday life on the walls of their homes with very bright colours. It has now become a native art and recreated on paper for the tourists to buy and take home. One can find the design on t-shirts, caps, bed sheets and ceramics as well. Mithila painting style is one of the traditional Nepali gifts that people take back home from the country.
5. Block printing
Block printing is a very famous style of garments, which can be bought here at low prices. Wooden blocks are carved into different patterns, and then they are used to print the similar designs on the textile with the help of colours. This style of printing on textiles is a very unique and creative and one should definitely look for it during clothes shopping in Kathmandu. In Nepal, one can find them not only on garments but stationeries, handmade papers, upholsteries, and tablecloths as well.
6. Thangkas and Paubhas
Thangkas are the rectangular or square pieces of cloth made of cotton or silk, hand-woven or painted on with pictures related to Tibetan Buddhism. It can be the deity of Avalokiteshvara Buddha or a scene from Buddhist stories or a simple mandala. They are very popular items for Nepali shopping and are available at very affordable prices. Paubhas are the same things, but done on script paper instead of cloth.
7. Handmade paper
Although it does not sound like something interesting to buy, be assured it is. Traditional Nepalese handmade paper, or as they call it, the rice paper is made of the bark of Lokta tree found in remote areas of Nepal. Notebooks and diaries made from this paper can be a really cool gift from Nepal.
Thamel In Kathmandu
Thamel is the hotspot for tourists in Kathmandu. Thamel neighbourhood first became popular during the 1970-80s when hippie culture took over Kathmandu. Unconventional travellers, living out of their backpacks came in the Nepalese capital in hordes, and they all made Thamel their resident hub while in the city. Over the deca...

Trip to NepalKathmandu drivers kept on changing and car was small and last day it was so hot and a/c was not working
Trip to Tamil NaduWe went on 5day/4night trip to Nepal. The trips were well arranged - hotels, cab driver, etc. Can't make any complaints.
Trip to NepalThank you ashirvad travels for putting up so much effort to make my nepal trip memorable . It was my first trip with my fiance outside india and we had a great time in nepal . I had a tough time while returning when our car broke down but u guys did a awesome job arranging a alternate vehicle in a very small time . The driver deepak was very nice and guided us throughout the trip . Special thanks to SUMIT MISHRA to take care of all our need before , and throughout the journey ,you are a big asset to the company ,keep up the good work bro . Breakfast in the hotels was a bit disappointing but rest was excellent. Once again thank you ashirvaad travels and the team .
Trip to NepalIt was such an amazing experience. Our driver Pravin was very kind, helpful and keep us safe during the tour. The staff of our hotels was so kind, welcoming, cheerful and respectful. Vikram, Suyog, and the rest of the team in Hotel Temple Inn in Kathmandu were so helpful, full of energy. Bravo to them
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeelingoverall good experience but in Darjeeling hotel service is not good. visit Nepal border.
Trip to Nepaltrip was good. the trip was good.all the arrangements were fine. but I think the chitwan hotel Royal Safari was way too expensive. I could have better options at their in that price also they charged too much for cultural program.
Trip to NepalThe overall experience of booking through Travel Triangle was quite good . The concept is effective , as one gets directed to specialists for region one is travelling to . The initial interactions with the portal are quite professional and transparent in that it provides one with several independant quotes to choose from . However , in our case the travel partner that we chose , M/s.TripMasters , could do with a little more expertise with respect to i) Knowledge about various tariiffs involved etc. In our case we ended up paying approx. extra 10 % for the Hotel at the last stage as one us was an NRI . The travel partner cannot say this was unknown to them as thte flight tickets booked by them was basis IDs which clearly indicated nationalities . ii) The travel partner should update themselves with local holidays & events etc. at the destination .In our case due to elections in Nepal we lost a whole day and paid extra on travel alterations. iii) It would also do well to employ drivers who spend long durations in transit with the travellers to be a little more knowledgeable about local culture etc. if not to the extent of being a tour guide . The choice of hotels was quite satisfactory and itinerary very well explained and adhered to except for the above , in this case . We realised that one need not be a professional mountaineer to experience the mountains . While in Nepal one should not return without experiencing the mountains.There are options that one can choose to experience mountain trekking . Travel Traingle provides ample travel options to choose from and one can tailor one's requirements to needs and be assured of reasonable charges according to ones need. .
Trip to NepalThough initially unhappy it was all well in the end. Mr. Amit and mr. Roshan made our trip memorable. They were very helpful and cooperative. I have no hesitation in recommending others to choose this organization for their travel needs. N. Chandrasekhar. Travel organization and weather God made our trip truly enjoyable. N. Chandrasekhar.
Trip to Nepalvisit was good & quite exiting.journey was comfortable with enowa car except poor road conditions in almost all part of NEPAL. VISIT TO MANOKAMNA TEMPLE ON CABLE CAR WAS EXCELLENT.ACCOMODATION OK EXCEPT AT LUMBINI BORDER WHICH WAS MUCH BELOW OUR EXPECTATIONS COMPARED TO POKHERA AND KATHMANDU.MY ADVISE TO OTHERS IS STAY AT LUMBINI OR IN BHARAHWA MARKET NOT ON BORDER.. VISIT TO MANOKAMNA TEMPLE AND MARKETING IN POKHERA
Trip to NepalVery good experience except one hotel Temple Inn. Have not got AC room. As per itinerary. Had good time with family.
