    I really recommend this store for REAL cashmere products in Kathmandu. The owner and his awesome wife are very kind and always engaged to find the right product for your or your loved ones!
    The store is 100% Fairtrade which is the most important for me …….

    My favourite place in Kathamandu!!!

    It is a women's project that is employing more than 75 women in rural Nepal to make these environmentally friendly products. The first time I met this shop I was impressed with all the history they have behind them and all that they have achieved in the last few years. Saheen is a sweetheart and if you go there she will be happy to assist you and show you the room upstairs with more products. They have lots of hemp gifts, clothes, accessories....

    If you are interested in knowing more about the project you can visit the workshop where they produce the products according to fair trade principles and meet the wonderful women behind this project. 100% recommended! :) Here some pictures of the shop!

    Stopped in on May 27 and stayed about 1 1/2 hours looking at knives and discussing the differences. Ended up buying 3 knives. Learned a lot about the knives and their history. Never felt any pressure to buy anything. Highly recommend you stop in to see their wares.

    Marvelous collection of shawls, scarfs and stoles. I must say they have a wonderful variety in both stock and prices. It is the best store to buy authentic pashmina at a very reasonable price. I bought a shawl for my mother from here and trust me they have an amazing collection. Very satisfied

    I love bookstores, so I knew I would be visiting this place in Thamel Nepal. I’m just eager to peruse everything, so I just had to pace myself. This bookstore has lots of interesting books, handicrafts, posters and souvenirs. I bought one book that caught my eye. The staff were all friendly and helpful. If you’re a 💙 of books, then stop here when you travel to Nepal.

    Easy to find. It was the second shop I’ve been. I didn’t liked the material in the other one (high rated here in TA) so I decided to give this one a shot. Everybody was very nice and the shawls had all beautiful colour and the material was good. I left the shop with 3 shawls but wanted to buy a lot more!

    Baber Mahal Revisited

    Mulchowk Restaurant and Bar

    The colonial architecture is beautiful. Very popular among diplomats in Kathmandu, Nepal. Very nice place to hang out with friends and family to get away from the crowded city. It's a historical place and bit expensive. Amazing place to walk around. The place is melange of art, history, food and shopping.
    There is many small shops inside Baber Mahal Revisited for buying Nepal based souvenirs.

    This baked cheese cake is dense and creamy filling which will melt in your mouth. It has a velvety texture, rich and thick too. It was slightly burnt on the top as well, and crust were perfectly flat. A perfect sweet treat to enjoy in the warmer months of the season.

    It's big enough for 2 person. I could not finish all of it there, remaining i brought it back to Bangladesh 😂 and also forgot to keep it in refrigerator the whole time, but the funniest part is it didn't get spoiled at all and was edible :D

    I have tried baked cheesecake. Price : 807 Nepali Rupee (Tax and service charge included)

    📍 Location : Tanka Prasad Sadak, Kathmandu 44600, Nepal

    Overall Experience :
    Food : 9.5/10
    Intererior : 10/10
    Service : 9.5/10

    ⚠️ This is my personal opinion. Thank you! ❤

    In my assumption Nepal Music Gallery is the one the foremost music shop throughout Nepal. I perceive that this music store has an enormous cluster of eastern and western musicals instruments at the affordable Price. They are so affable and an alliance towards all the customers. Everyone can track down this store in the Kathmandu, lainchour , Scout building.

    Owner was very relaxed and was not pushy. He explained everything about the different products. His products were reasonably priced. I said my wife and I would discuss and come back, and he accepted without being rude. We spoke outside and both agreed we were happy with his business style and product quality.

    Was hoping though for a reply from their suggested Sales email address, I am still happy that my call was entertained by their office courteously. I love the quality of their 5" inch kukris that they quickly delivered to the Philippines. Will surely order bigger blades.
