Shopping Centre of Nepal

Shopping Center of Nepal
Kathmandu is the obvious place to do some serious shopping, especially if you’re planning a trip to the remote countryside, or its your last stop before leaving the country. Other goods include bronze and copper items, shoulder bags, knives, wooden masks and statues, silk handbags, colorful sweaters and jackets, used camping gear, bamboo flutes, carpets (test to see if they are colorfast), papier-mâché masks, Nepalese caps, block prints on rice paper, Nepalese violins and woven cloth. For Western-style clothes, cameras and other electronic equipment head for New Road, the busy street leading up to Kathmandu's Durbar Square. A couple of small shops in Thamel and Khichapokhri (south of New Road) are devoted to Nepalese musical instruments, while hack minstrels peddle sarangi (traditional fiddles) around Thamel and cheap bamboo flutes in Durbar Square. Most of the big & fashionable shopping centers are located in the New Road and Durbar Marg area. United World Trade Centre, country’s largest shopping mall. is situated at Tripureshwore. The most comprehensive shopping malls in Kathmandu are:
