Quality Handicraft, Genuine but Expensive

Good place for shopping. No bargaining for carpets (we bought one) and scope to negotiate for other handicraft stuff like jewelry and other decorative items.

We went to purchase a rug today and counted out 8 X bundles of NR10,000 (80,000) onto the counter for payment. We took the rug to our car while they wrote the receipt. When we returned, they said there was only 70,000. So disappointed that they would do this. We will be living in Pokhara for 3 years and intended... More

I wish I had had a lot of money when I was here. The handmade carpets were so beautiful!! But I couldn't afford it. By the way when you're here you can also peek into some houses there, to see the tools they use to make great art. There's a community hall too here.

Visited Tibetan Handicraft House in Pokhara. All are working hard. Nice and simple people. We chatted together. They have a good knowledge. Many things to buy like carpets and other handicrafts.

I last time visited Tibetan handicraft center and found that place really amazing. Tibetan people are really nice and working hard on their part. I felt like I have come to a different place where they have a world of their own. Everyone is living a very simple and peaceful life. The handicraft center was really good and if I... More

I was at the centre early July. They do have beautiful rugs of all size and I did see some women crafting the rugs by hand, whether it is cheaper elsewhere was not an issue as I wanted to contribute to their socio- economic welfare. I purchased a small rug and a banner which I could easily carry on board... More

I disagree with previous poster, Duncan C, as I saw myself some of the women were busy crafting the beads and necklaces behind the tables or in front of their homes. The beads and necklaces here are way cheaper compared to the shops in Lakeside or Devi's Falls. It also helps these Tibetan Refugees as they have no other jobs... More
