The Paper Park

The Thamel area boasts several great shops that showcase Nepal's wonderful handmade paper products, and The Paper Park might be the best place to buy it. Visitors can find photo albums, paper lamps, notebooks, paper hangings and much more, made from the country's special paper that comes from the lokta plant.


Kathmandu offers everything from luxury boutiques and shopping centres to bargain outlets and outdoor markets. Visitors can shop for designer clothing or interesting souvenirs, but where the city really shines is in handicrafts and antiques: everything from scroll paintings and metalwork to handwoven cloths, gems, incense, teas and spices. Of course, adventurers can also find their share of trekking gear shops to prepare for their mountain expeditions.
