    Nepal has many vibrant local markets. Some popular ones include Asan Tole Market and Indra Chowk Market in Kathmandu, Thamel Market for tourists. These markets offer a variety of goods, from fresh produce to handicrafts and souvenirs.

    Pema Dolma work is exceptionally wonderful. I really like it. Keep going. Let's give a round of applause to Pema Dolma, the fantastic manager of our vibrant Farmer's Market section at Utpala Cafe!

    I have three pieces from S. K. Handicrafts. I love all of them. They are beautifully made and wonderful to wear. My favourite is probably the charcoal coloured knitted shawl this piece is real luxury. However my blue poncho and grey pashmina also get used constantly. I particularly like the pashmina for travel as it is light but cosy. I hope to add to my collection each winter. Next a black poncho. My last purchase was online and arrived quickly and is perfect.

    I ordered a tingsha (antique) online after speaking to the owner's son. I wanted to see a picture and see what it sounded like which he sent me. They were extremely nice and factual and answered all my questions and helped me figure out how to pay for it. most of all …everything they said was true and the Tingsha sounds fantastic and it’s exactly what they said it would be. I couldn’t be more happy. I took a very long time of looking around and checking out leads to find something this special. They shipped it right away and it got here in four days. I couldn’t be more happy with the item and the handling of it. Definitely deal with this shop.

    This is the greatest experience and glad that I got a chance to visit such a nice calm and peaceful place with the feel of art and understanding artist by their painting. Understanding artist and their painting are really hard but when you see it, you can feel each one of them through your heart and mind.
    I really found interesting and everyone should visit.

    I visited the Art Council today to see some contemporary Nepalese art.

    I loved the exhibition that has some very fine examples of contemporary Nepalese art. See below.

    The director took time out to show me around and explain some of the paintings.

    It was a great experience. If you want to see Nepal through the eyes of contemporary Nepalese go there.

    I visit KTM frequently and this place is unique. The shirts are high quality and sold at reasonable no-haggle prices. Designs and production are local. The designs are thoughtful and cool looking.

    I bought one shirt last visit and am back for more. The owners are super nice and have a higher-consciousness about why they're running a shop. Definitely stop in.

    We bought 2 paintings from here today for 3 specific reasons.

    1: the art is beautiful.
    2: we were able to browse without being constantly pestered by someone trying to make a sale.
    3: The seller did not try to rip us off, he gave us a reasonable price from the get go unlike other galleries we went to.

    10/10 would recommend this art gallery!

    By accident I heard about the woodcraft workshop on Saturday mornings. The really nice brothers welcome you an give you the possibility to choose your own form to work on. After that they help you by making it the way they do it in Nepal. In the meanwhile they can tell you whatever you want to know about Nepal and their culture. They're also really interested in your culture. After the workshop, that ends when you are ready, they ask you for tips because they want to learn teaching. So I would recommend everybody to go to the Gallery on Saturday at 12 o'clock, it's all for free!
