There was a time when visitors came to Kathmandu solely to marvel at its fine art and architecture. Nowadays, they also drop in to admire the scenery at its modern shopping centers. What make Kathmandu such a great place to stock up on international brand merchandise are the better prices you get here. Overhead costs are lower in Kathmandu, so dealers can offer cheaper rates for genuine products. Moreover, there are authorized dealers for a wide range of designer products and you can be sure you are getting the genuine article.

The craftsmen of the Kathmandu valley were well respected at the royal court of China in ancient times. The very same crafts which earned them fame are practiced here today, side by side with their modern brothers and sisters. To step into a Kathmandu valley workshop is to step back in time 400 years. And those items which you bring home with you will forever link you to the days of exotic courts and arduous trade routes.

Boudha is 6 km far from Kathmandu, the circular sanctuary of the Boudhanath Stupa where traditional houses with shops displaying Nepalese handicrafts and Tibetan Curios. Short and long brass and copper trumpets, yak tails, incense, gems, carpets, thangkas, handlooms, garments, brocades, butter lamps and many other endearing knick- knacks abound here.
