Shops selling rings, beads, turquoise, spoons, neck piece, danglers, and carnelians in a small market in Leh, Ladakh
If you wish to take some memories from Ladakh, the world’s highest hill station, then shopping is the ideal choice. One can find traditional curios and all kinds of trinkets in the colorful markets of Ladakh. Shopping in Ladakh is all about buying traditional Ladakhi artefacts like Buddhist relics, tangkhas and prayer wheels, copper samovars, wooden masks, silver jewellery, turquoise and coral stones, pashmina and cashmere shawls and stoles, hand-woven blankets and rugs, woollens, fossils and other curios fill the shops in Ladakh. The most famous items that tourists can buy are local handicrafts, organic products, tribal jewelry, pearls and semi-precious stone. They all make good buys to carry back home and can be bought for very good prices, after a bit of bargaining and haggling, of course. Some shops sell what are loosely called antiques – their provenance is often doubtful, so the buyer needs to be careful as to what he picks up and what he pays for it. The best place to buy local crafts is at the artisans’ workshops – the stuff is usually authentic and less the middleman’s commission.
