Tibetan village of Tashi Ling
Nepal, Pokhara

Fans of authentic Asian mountain culture will enjoy visiting the Tibetan village of Tashi Ling in Pokhara, where the life and lifestyle typical of small Tibetan villages are preserved. It seems that time has no power over the life of local residents who have been engaged in their traditional craft for thousands of years. The main value of this place is the community of elderly women who, with the confident movements of skillful fingers, continuously spin thin threads of wool. Other women weave beautiful carpets from the material obtained on old workbenches, the value of which is contained in every knot, hand-woven with love. The concentrated weathered faces of hardworking old women seem to be completely unaware of emotions, and their national outfits add even more cultural value to this small village. Woven carpets and rugs of all sizes and colors can be purchased right here, in a small shop. Their cost will vary depending on the complexity of the work, quality, size and pattern. Feel the difference between a coarse and heavy specimen made of the hard wool of a mountain yak and the unsurpassed softness of silk rugs, caressing your hand with its smooth pile. Here you can also get examples of the national craft of Tibet and other souvenirs.
