Chhatrakot Rural Municipality is gearing up for a unique celebration on April 19th – a one-day sugarcane festival aimed at promoting sugarcane cultivation and its associated products. This festival follows the successful orange festival held by the municipality last year.

“We want to showcase the delicious potential of sugarcane and support our local farmers,” said Village Chairman Ram Prasad Pandey. The festival will feature displays of traditional sugarcane delicacies like Khudo and Gud, made by the farmers themselves.

Visitors can also expect live demonstrations on sugarcane harvesting and processing techniques, offering valuable insights into this agricultural practice. Chhatrakot’s Hunga, Hardineta, Digam, and Kharjyang areas are known as sugarcane hubs.
