Are you a person who can't resist shopping even on a vacation? If yes, then you are at the right place. Kalimpong spoils you with choices when it come to shopping. Indulge yourself in shopping spree and bring back a little piece of this pristine hill station with you.
Main Bazaar is the prime shopping location and it has several small shops which are full of a variety of goodies such as stunning paintings, fabulous wall hangings, amazing statues, exquisite Thangkas (Buddhist Cloth Paintings), exotic wall hangings, antique knives, unique masks, colorful Dragons masks, items made from bone, Churpee (a kind of hard cheese made from Yak's milk) and locally made Lollipops. Make sure you haggle before you shop as the shopkeepers tend to overcharge for tourists. You can also make your way to the wholesale market to explore more options but the prices are fixed here.

If you are keen on buying some clothes from Kalimpong, then R.C, Mintri Road is the place as the Marwari Area boasts of several shops that have an amazing collection of apparels. Some other places worth exploring are:


  • Lark's Provisions
    Step in at this popular shop and stock your shopping bags with Lollipops (INR 25 for a packet), Kalimpong Cheese (INR 180 per Kg) and homemade pickles.

  • Tashi Takgye (Colour House)
    A one-stop shopping destination for you where you can shop for stunning paintings, fabulous wall hangings, amazing statues, exquisite Thangkas (Buddhist Cloth Paintings), exotic wall hangings, antique knives, unique masks, colorful Dragons masks and items made from bone. There is no bargaining here as it is a fixed price shop and is a wholesale supplier/importer/exporter for the northern region. Don't worry about the prices as they are comparatively cheaper other outlets in the region.
