In this game, you have to walk on a steep slope. It is said to be used to travel from one village to another in the Himalayan region.
International Mountain Guide Gurung says that this adventure sport started to spread around the world after being used to go from one village to another during the Second World War.
He said that the government should focus on the promotion of the game in collaboration with the local level as it has more potential in Nepal.
