Answer: Shopping is an ideal way to carry a piece of your holiday back with you and keep the memory of it alive in the souvenirs you buy. More than that, retail therapy usually works wonders no matter where you are or who you are with.

In Pahalgam, shopping can be quite a delight. You can shop for typical Kashmiri handicrafts and souvenirs, like beautifully hand-woven shawls, carpets with a regal air, woolen apparel like phirans to keep you warm (and fashionable!), embroidered tea cosies, wall hangings and wooden, carved souvenirs. Kashmiri items blend tradition and utility very well, so they're usually hard to resist, either as gifts for loved ones or indulgences for yourself.

Know as the shepherd's village, Pahalgam retains its rustic charm, still away from too much urban development. There may not be many showrooms or malls in the area, but the Main Market area, right in the centre of the small town, is quite a delight for local handicrafts. This sole market in the area caters to most of the tourists' shopping needs, and is usually bustling with activity between sunrise and sundown. Ideally, it's best to leisurely walk around the market to get a feel of the local lifestyle and the culture of Pahalgam and the Kashmir valley.

Lighten your pockets, gladden your hearts and come back with a wealth of memories!
