Nepalese are fully prepared for the first time after the distressing coronavirus pandemic for almost 3 years to celebrate its National festival in its fullest mood this year.
Chyangra, the Himalayan goats, will be brought in around 500 numbers to Kathmandu from the Darchula district in view of the approaching Dashain festival.
It is the first time for the people of Kathmandu, the Himalayan goats are being fetched here from Darchula.
Food Management and Trading Company are bringing in the Chyangra from Darchula reasoning the excessive cost of transportation from Mustang district.
Company’s Executive Director Mohan Prakash Chand shared that it was for the first time in Kathmandu, that Chyangra will be cuisine in Dashain from Darchula, the far western district of the country.
The Company is purchasing Chyangra alive at Rs 1,150 per kg. This effort will help in alleviating the price of Chyangra in the market.
Meanwhile, the Company is planning to send around 400 quintals of rice to Byaas Rural Municipality’s Chhangru and Tinker in the Darchula district at the call of people’s representatives at the local level there.
The Company further informed that even the lentil, flour, salt, and sugar will be transported via helicopter to these places before Dashain, the biggest festival of Nepalis, beginning coming Monday, said.
In general, goat meat including chyangra and other normal from the local market is getting expensive as it is in high demand with low supply inside the country. Nepal imports almost 80 percent of mutton from neighboring countries every year which led to a huge amount of cash flying out of the country.
The local market may have other chyangra too for an expensive cost, typically it was Rs. 2000 per kg, this will increase this year.
