People from Tanakpur, Dharchula and Banbasa near the border cross the border to Nepal and buy cheap vegetables.

Decrease in vegetable production in the mountains

According to media reports, good rains in Kumaon in May-June lead to high production of vegetables in hilly areas, but this time drought has affected it significantly. Now, due to heavy rains, the income of vegetables has also decreased in these areas due to which their prices have increased. Here in Nepal, vegetable production has been good due to timely rains and favorable weather.
