For souvenirs and gifts, the best place is the Mall where you can buy local shawls, rugs, caps and footwear, besides a whole range of jewellery and stone studded crafts from Tibet. There is also a government run emporium where you don’t need to try your bargaining skills. The Himachal Handicrafts emporium & The Bhuttico weavers’ co-operative are good for local handicrafts, caps, stoles and shawls. The Tibetan Bazaar and Tibetan Carpet centre sell thangka, rugs, jewellery and prayer wheels amongst other things. If you are interested to buy genuine shawls at a discounted rate please ask our reception to help you. There is a good friend near the hotel itself who supplies to the hotel guests. He can offer you genuine products at heavily discounted rates. There are also some great shops for purchase of haversacks and other trekking material, the details of which can be asked from the travel desk operators in Sagar Resorts.
