Any vacation is incomplete without a shopping spree in local markets, and Kathmandu has plenty to offer to delight the shopaholic in you! Take home Pashminas Shawls, exquisite stone jewellery, wood carvings and many other curios from your holiday in Nepal.

  • Babar Mahal Revisited

    If you are ready to shell out the moolah, head to Babar Mahal Revisited to shop for chic designer wear, hop in and out of art galleries, find amazingly intricate stone jewellery and pick up fine wines from the wine store here.

  • Thamel

    Want to do the street shopping bit? Thamel area is where you need to be! Dotted with small shops selling all odds and ends to cater to every fancy of yours, the shopkeepers here are friendly, without being pushy. This is probably the bargainers paradise, and make sure you pick up handmade goodies from shops like
    Paper Park.

Another highlight of shopping in Kathmandu is the ladies' favourite Pashmina Shawl. Do remember to check up on the purity and price before you pick up a piece. Teeza is a shop in Thamel that assures you of the best in both and also stocks colourful hand embroidered jackets worth checking out.

  • Mahaguthi

Local handicrafts and artefacts make for good gifting options and can be bought at Mahaguthi. Shop for delicately carved wooden figurines. Don't forget to pick up the famous Khukri Knives from the Khukri House here!

When in the vibrant markets of Kathmandu, indulge yourself to the fullest!
