Shop with locals at Thimphu’s Weekend Market, where you can buy handwoven silks, singing bowls, and traditional masks, above. You’ll also find human bones: Thigh bones, kangdu, are blown like trumpets, and skulls, kapala, are used to hold water or rice.
Across the Wang Chhu River from Chogyal Lam road. Open Saturdays and Sundays. This appeared in the March/April 2012 issue.
