About Ghoom Monastery Market

Ghoom Monastery Market is located near the magnificent Ghoom Monastery, set in a scenic background. You can visit this place in the early morning hours or late evening, to witness the beauty of the Himalayan mountains during sunrise and sunset. The market is vibrant with colorful Tibetan flags, small shops full of interesting artifacts and travelers wandering along to pick up souvenirs. Shoppers, especially women, can have a gala time as the market is filled with purses, bags, and other decorative items made by locals, available at a reasonable price. Tibetan curios like prayer wheels, singing bowls, prayer flags, and wall paintings called “thangkas”, are sure to catch your attention. You’ll also find monks and Buddhist women selling Tibetan handicrafts and religious objects. The market is spread along the tracks of the toy train and is a wonderful sight to watch.

Pro Tip: Carry cash as most of the street shops or stores would not accept cards.
