Afghan Carpets

One of the shop i found of my interest at centaurus is Afghan Carpet. We usually found lots of beautiful carpets and rugs in the market that ranges from least 6,000 Rs to 5 lacs in most prices.

In Pakistan most of them are suppose to be Afghan made but normally when you ask from shop keeper they will tell you that they are imported from Iran. May be the reason is that in Afghanistan due to unstable situation carpet weaving industry is not flourishing. At few places hand made rugs are weave by kids, women and men but they doesn't comes in markets on commercial level.

One such Carpet shop i visited a year back at Peshawar near Karkhano market. For details Click here Afghan carpet shop in Peshawar


  1. Ciao Kiran, these carpets have the magnificent designs ! A hug !

    P.S. in my blog, I have two symbolic prizes for you to express my appreciation to you, and should not necessarily be shared on your.

  2. Everest Base Camp Trekking often touted as one of the most beautiful of trekking trips in the whole world and rightly it is. Located at the lap of world's highest peak, Everest Base Camp (EBC) is rewarded as the best trip Nepal has to offer. Since 1920, Mt Everest has captivated intrepid men and women. There were some exploits of legends like Sir Edmund Hillary, George Mallory and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa to put the mighty mountains on the map. Thousands of adventurers followed them making huge sacrifices. EBC Trek is designed to fulfill the dream of many people to experience the historic route to the base of world's highest peak. Since the beginning, Everest Base Camp Route has gained massive popularity and a lot of appreciation. The highlights of Everest Base Camp Trekking are the stunning views of Mount Everest, legendary Sherpa culture, wonderful Namche Bazaar, Tengboche Monastery, the best viewpoint of Kalapatthar, and beautiful Chhukung valley among many others. We gradually ascend through the wonderful Sherpa villages enjoying the magnificent Himalayan scenery, wildlife and visit a number of Buddhist Monasteries. EBC Trek culminates with a fine opportunity to trek to both EBC and nearby peak of Kalapatthar (5545m) for spectacular views of the Everest. Savoring the high mountain views with the unique and life defining journey, EBC trip can be combined with Gokyo Chola Pass Trek, or Everest Three Passes packages as well, making the journey bit more challenging and rewarding too. Encounters Nepal has carefully devised an itinerary with a number of rest days that offers an exceptional way to acclimatize safely. Having had hit the Himalayan Trails since so long, we have learned never to rush a trek to altitude in the Himalaya. Taking an extra few days makes all the difference to really being able to enjoy the trek and trekking in Nepal.

  3. Very beautiful and workmanship carpet! How long does it take to weave such a carpet, I wonder. It's not able to make in Afghanistan so It's sad.
    Have a nice day!
