My partner and I are travelling to Nepal over December and January for a trekking holiday which includes Everest Base Camp and the Cho La pass. We have two days both be before and after our tour where we would like to do some sight seeing around Kathmandu (We are staying at the Radisson). Included in our tour is a visit to Pashupatinath and Boudhanath but we would also like to visit some markets/bazaars.
We are also getting married at Thyangboche Monastry (during our trek) and we would love to be able to purchase some traditional wedding items (I already have a red dress), but some decorational bindis, traditional hat/vest for the groom and the red dust that is use to anoint the brides forehead, not to mention where I could get some henna done etc.
If some one could please advise us on any of this we would be most appreciative!
