- Domestic Animals of Kali Gandaki Valley in Nepal
Domestic animals that breed in the Kaki Gandaki valley in Nepal, from Kagbeni, Mustang district to Rahughat, Myagdy district, were surveyed. There are mainly mini cattle, lulu, in the upstream area, a mixed breed of lulu and zebu type cattle in the downstream area from a height of 2500m, and zebu type cattle in the downstream area. Preservation of native animals such as the lulu is an urgent matter. Sheep and goats are bred in the upper stream area. A lot of horses are used for riding and as packhorses. For pack animals, yaks and donkeys are also used. The narrow valley was filled with lots of these livestock, so grass and shrub seems to be diminished due to use as fodder for these animals. A small number of water buffalo and swine are observed. Dogs similar to Tibetan Mastiffs and mongrel are found all over the valley.
