Tibetan Thangka Gallery

Thangkas are traditional Tibetan Buddhist scroll paintings on cotton or silk that usually depict Buddhist deities, religious scenes or mandalas. The thangkas on display here are beautiful and a great bargain, as they usually end up on sale at tourist hotspots for much higher prices. Pop in, watch the artists at work in the workshop and take home a unique souvenir.


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.
