Shopping is the life of your trip to anywhere in the world? You are not fulfilled if two or three of your bags are not filled with items from the place? Do you think this is something only you are infected with? Well, here I happily break the news to you that you are not the only one on this planet who is crazy about shopping and Almora, through little options that could fit in the geography of this small place, will not disappoint the shopaholic in you.

Here I will talk about the most famous bazaar in the town and that is

  • Lala Bazaar

  • Shopping at the most vibrant bazaar of Almora is an experience that you wouldn’t want to miss. And if that bazaar is Lala Bazaar then the experience reaches to new levels. The bazaar offers you with a wide variety of shopping facilities. From bronze items to sweets, from handicrafts to copperware, you name it and the bazaar has it for you. But most importantly, the market is famous for the Angora wool that comes from the Angora Rabbit. The wool is very soft, warm and is of the finest quality that is available in the country and that makes it a hit among the locals and the tourists alike. Though you will have to exercise everything you learnt at the ‘How to Bargain’ classes and really work hard for bringing down the amount that you finally pay for a product. If not that, try some of the decorative items, Pashmina Shawls, handicrafts and other types of utensils that are available in the market.

Along with this Bazaar, you can also try buying all this at other ones such as the Old Almora located down the cantonment area which was once the capital of Kumaoni Chand Rajas. Interestingly, traffic is prohibited in this area and that ways you will not be disturbed during the shopping expedition of yours. Do not forget to explore the lanes of Thana and Johri Bazaars which are going to serve you with the same treats but in a different way in the context of the experience that you get out of them.

Try these bazaars and the shopaholic in you will be flattered beyond your expectations. Isn’t that great? Well, I see you there nodding your head. So, don’t wait anymore. Just plan your next vacation to Almora and its beautiful valleys and enthralling hills.
