In Nepal shopping of both local and imported goods are possible .Clothes, shoes, accessories, sportswear, electronic goods, cosmetics, food, Handicrafts, etc are easily found in the major cities of Nepal. Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Lalitpur, Pokhara, Chitwan, Dharan are some of the major tourist attractions where, well facilitated shopping malls to road side street venders are available to fulfill your shopping desires.
Most shops and clothing stores have fixed price tagged along their good,but in case of small shops, you can bargain the prices for purchasing goods. While shopping in Nepal it is advisable to carry Nepali currency in cash as most of the shops only accept cash. In Kathmandu, Newroad , Thamel and Durbarmarg are the most popular places for shopping.
I look forward to working with your team on future treks when I am able to return to Nepal - perhaps as September 2010 with my wife.
