The Mount Everest Gift Shop in downtown Estes Park, Colorado, is a Nepali product gift store with singing bowls, wall art, hanging tapestries, resin and copper/brass rings and bangles, sequined and multi-colored skirts, ethnic tunics, and silk and cotton salwar pants. The shop reminds me of an Asian bazaar full of simply awesome items! The Mt. Everest Gift Shop is owned by Shyem, who is from Nepal, and who travels back to his homeland to visit the artisans whose items fill his store.
The tops, skirts, pants, and dresses cost $10-$25 each and are not just clothing, but are beautiful works of art. The jewelry, from copper and brass cuff bracelets, to stone necklaces, to resin rings are stunning wearable artistic endeavors. The singing bowls sold at this shop are the most reasonable and best-toned I have ever encountered, and my family and I have bought four, medium-sized bowls ranging from $40-$60 each.
We also have purchased five pairs of silk salwar pants for $10 each, a woven tunic for $10, and two headbands of silk and woven cotton for $3-$5 each. We could not be more pleased with our purchases as they are all both beautiful and useful. The Mt. Everest Gift Shop is truly a high point of an Estes Park, Colorado, shopping experience managed by a delightful family and stocked with treasures from afar.
