Smoke-free oven in Langtang village

Dhunche (Rasuwa) Jan 5: The quake-hit folks of Langtang in Rasuwa district have been provided with the improved clay oven that saves cooking time, consumes less firewood and is smoke-free.

A total of 116 smoke-free clay ovens were distributed to the locals with support from the non-governmental organisations managed after social initiatives. The ovens were taken to the village in a Fishtail Air helicopter, Sennurpu Tamang, a local resident said.

With the distribution of the improved ovens, the life in the Himalayan region is expected to become easier due to better health of the folks and warm houses. It is learnt that the energy efficient stoves were imported from Lhasa of China. RSS
