This is a great place to learn about and help the Tibetan Refugees. They have a museum that is a must see to learn and appreciate the difficulties they have endured. It will add much more meaning to the work they do here. Go and see the women first hand making their rugs and wall hangings. You may then go... More

We stopped by this Tibetan Refugee Center to see the daily life of these refugees. Unlike most refugee camps I've visited this has no border/wall separating the refugees and the locals from going about their daily life. We saw how the center was built from the history in the center then encountered how the elderly were still practising their trade... More

We visited this Tibitian Refugee Handicraft Centre to see the Tibitan women still hand making their rugs, carpets, wall hangings, belts and bags. The money from purchases goes directly back into this small community. The quality of the work is beautiful.

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

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.

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.
