Tromsikhang Market

Market in Lhasa

This bazaar-like area in the old town has the widest selection of dried fruit and nuts (imported from Xīnjiāng) and is the place to buy such Tibetan specialities as tsampa (roasted-barley flour), churpi (dried yak cheese) and yak butter. Khampa-style cowboy hats are for sale in the streets outside.
