    Pilgrim's Books: Need any book?

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was our first and only night at Kathmandu and our guide offered us free time before dinner. Either we could split from the group or go with them and see that famous bar in which famous mountaineers hang out and the Pilgrim’s Book Store. We –two girls- chose to go our way and went shopping.
    Then, we saw this bookstore on our last day on this tour, again. We decided to enter. It has numerous rooms; all contains books in different subjects. There were subject lists on the doors of the store. Also there was a café part. You can both read and drink. We saw some stamps from carved wood. They were nice options as souvenirs. I liked a dragon shaped one but I remembered that I don’t stamp my books and didn’t buy it.

    What to buy: Books, bookmarks, stamps, souvenirs, maps

    Pilgrims in Thamel (almost next to the Kathmandu Guest house) is the largest and most well established English language bookshop in Kathmandu. They have a great selection of books, many on Nepal and he mountains of the country.
    You will actually find more than just books here. The store sells many local handicraft and souvenirs at fixed prices. It is a great place to shop at if you don’t feel like haggling.
