Pig farming

Pig farming in Chepel started with 37 piglets in 2016. Each household which received piglets had to give away 2 newborn pigs to anotzher family in order to spread the pigs all over the village and the region. This has helped to develop Chepel in one of the three pig farming centers in the region of Solu-Khumbu (the region beneath Everest Region). However, there is still need for more pigs. In case you want to “offer” a pig to Chepel – one piglet is 50 Euro.
