Nepal offers many beautiful souvenirs and works of art that will remind you of your visit and provide fascinating gifts.
While visiting Nepal, we encourage you to purchase Made in Nepal souvenirs that support the local economy. Made in Nepal souvenirs would be hand woven wool carpets (known as Tibetan carpets and rugs woven by both Nepalese and Tibetan refugees in Tibetan style), Pashmina shawls, wool and cotton clothing, artworks such as wood carving, Bronze, silver, jewelry, Thanka paintings, hand-made papers and products, and any product that meet your needs and wants would help to improve the Nepalese economy.
How to find out whether a product is made in Nepal, ask your guide. An honest tour guide should be able to find out if the souvenir being sold is a genuine Nepali product. Products brought from across the borders do not support the local economy.
Stop! Do Not Purchase Wild Animals and Animal Products As Souvenirs:
Please avoid at all costs from purchasing wild animals and animal products as souvenirs as these promote the poaching of wild and endangered animals. Carrying wild animals or animal products across international airports could land you unwanted consequences.
