Lonely Planet review

The Kopundol road linking Patan and Kathmandu is lined with shops that support the work of craft cooperatives around the country, channelling money directly from travellers to disadvantaged and neglected communities. Dhukuti packs in three floors of home furnishings, textiles, shawls, scarves, bags and rugs from the Nupri region of Manaslu, and even has Christmas decorations, created by over 1200 low-income producers.
