    Nepal Cristal Shop: Shopping for chrystals?

    by Saagar Written Mar 11, 2010

    I put this tip under "art"... It may you like chrystals (mainly quartz) from a geological point of view or a by far more esoteric one; who cares, this shop had a good selection of fine chrystals. I thought they were nice, anyway, but i will leave to an expert to judge...

    What to buy: Small and large chrystals, some set in jewellry metal. some real big and colored ones, too, blueish, pink and smoke quartz.

    What to pay: Variable depending on size, quality and your ability to negotiate...

    Himalayan Map House: Maps and postcards

    by Saagar Written Mar 11, 2010

    If you need trekking maps and overview maps, postcards and some books on geography, the Himalayan Map House down the street from KTM Guest House (near Third Eye, opposite side) may have what you are looking for. a wide selection, but if you need the 1:50.000 maps you will still have to go Thapathali to get them.
    Friendly service, easy layout of the shop.

    The Himalayan Map house is also a publishing company, producing maps and other things.

    What to buy: Wide selection of maps and post cards.

    Creative Art Gallery: Paintings - not kitch, at Creative Art Gallery

    by Saagar Written Mar 11, 2010

    A small exhibition/art gallert one level up from the street in Thamel. Doesn't really distinguish itself from many similar shops around there except for the wide open front and sometimes very large paintings seen from the street.
    The painter/artist is Raju Manandhar.
    I bought a large Tharu dance motif. Very nice, has gotten many compliments from visitors at home. It may be something off a postcard, but never mind, it is lively, artsy, recognizeable and with colors that act as a polka dot in my place.

    What to buy: Landscapes, folklorish motives, city motives. They will probably paint according to order, too.

    What to pay: Not cheap, but you will find that the frame may cost more when you live in Northern Europe....
    It is all in the eye of the beholder....

    IN GENERAL: CARPETS

    Many of the souvenir shops are owned by Kashmiris and you must bargain hard. There are some beautiful carpets available but many are inferior quality.
