- Hand made wooden bowls (dappa) are a wonderful and practical souvenir. The halves of the bowl fit tighly together, so they can be used to carry cooked food, which is their function in Bhutan. However, they also make excellent salad or cookie bowls. Dappa are a specialty of the Trashi Yagtse region, and it is possible to purchase them directly from the workshops of dappa makers.
