It can either be the best Nepal produces or that is specifically found in Nepal. Here are some of the items that you might want to look into:


Nepalese handicrafts have long been an integral part of the cultural heritage of the nation and reflect its diverse traditions and culture. Their origins can be found in the stone age, when there were no tools available to mankind. The world over, Nepali handicrafts are known for their exquisite art, crafts, and oriental architecture.

The skills and methods for making Nepalese handicrafts that have been passed down from generation to generation represent the social, religious, and cultural values present in diverse regions of the nation in addition to the talent and skill of the artisans. Many Nepalese handicraft products are exported in big quantities for trade and business. They are also popular among tourists as souvenirs.


The khukuri, whose history dates back to ancient times, is a valued relic that represents the Gurkha soldiers and how it has helped them to permanently carve out an identity for themselves. Since the 16th century, the khukuri has been the weapon of choice for the Nepalese Gorkhas, and the renowned Gorkhali Army of King Prithivi Narayan Shah. It is used for nearly everything, from a practical tool to a fighting knife that is effective in battle to a distinctive piece of decoration with its aesthetic appeal that has marked its amazing reputation. This unique and useful weapon must be given some credit for the Gorkhali Army's successful military campaigns and quick victories over its foes. Even though the size and style of the khukuri have been modified greatly, this custom is still in practice.

Beads and Jewellery

The ease with which personalized pieces are manufactured in locations like Kathmandu takes it to the top of our list of sites to buy beads and jewelry. In essence, you can have custom creations created for you from materials like stones, bones, metal, and seeds. The most widely used materials for beads include semi-precious and non-precious stones, glass, yak bone, plastic, and seeds. Keep in mind that many of these beads have a meaning that might be just as fascinating as the pattern itself.

Pashmina Shawls

The term Pashmina wool comes from Chyangra, a goat native to the vast Himalayan Mountain range and the sub-Siberian latitudes of North-Eastern Asia. It refers to a particular fabric created from wool that develops on the underside of mountain goats. Products made from pashmina are exquisitely hand-woven using traditional looms and skilled artisans' hands.

It is made of the rare Himalayan mountain goat's exceptionally soft and distinctive fibers. The neck wool of mountain goats is used to make the softest Pashmina fiber. The goats are domesticated in remote regions of the Himalayas in Nepal, Mongolia, and Tibet, at elevations of more than 12,000 feet. Dolpa, Mustang, Jumla, Humla, and other areas of Nepal, primarily Himalayan regions, are places where pashmina wool is collected.

Thangka Paintings

A thangka is a complex and extremely detailed painting that represents several gods and deities. It is often referred to as a paubhas, which means "message from the temple." Since Tibetan Buddhism has so many gods and deities, thangka paintings can depict a wide variety of various stories. Each one conveys a distinct message and shapes the unique aura of the home in which it is displayed.


Singing Bowls

Traditional medical procedures are still widely used even while the world progresses toward modernity. Singing bowls have a long history that can be traced back to the ancient Chinese civilization. Its early years were referred to as "nao." Most people think the singing bowl gained prominence in the Shamanistic traditions. Even in the most serious health situations, they continue to be the most efficient therapeutic tools. These seven elements - copper, tin, lead, zinc, iron, gold, and silver - may be present in one or more of the bowls.

These items are typical to Nepal. Buying some of these items and taking them back home is totally worth it!
