To find basic items, such as thermoses and water canisters, the best places are the lanes that run from the Tromsikhang Market down to the Barkhor circuit. Cheap pots and pans are available at the stalls on the east side of the Potala, north of the Airway Hotel. For hard-to-find items such as, sunscreen and deodorant, dig around in the Nepali-stocked shops dotted around the Barkor circuit.
Outlook Outdoor Equipment:This fine trekking shop acorss from the Kirey Hotel has Western-quality sleeping bags, Gore-Tex jackets and tents, plus hard-to-find imported knick-knacks like altimeters, trekking socks and Primus cook sets. Gear is also available for rent.
There are now dozens of other trekking shops on Beijing Donglu and Zangyiyuan Lu, though most offer low-quality Nepali-or Chinese-made knock-offs.
