The Center for Rural Technology, Nepal (CTRN) promoted the application of solar cookers along the most popular trekking route of Annapurna Himalayan Range in Nepal. The project addressed about 200 lodge owners located along the tourist route. The activities focused on rising awareness and operational training among the potential users, as well as continuous monitoring of performance and impacts of the technology. By facilitating access to a cleaner technology the project aimed to reduce dependency on firewood consumption and enhance protection of local forests, diminish health risks due to in-doors smoke that would have emitted from traditional fuel wood stoves and reduce drudgery.
