Keeping in mind the local climatic condition we have used local products as hogla, khor (straw), bans (bamboo), tal (palm tree), jhau (tamarisk) which made MonChasha more eco-friendly. According to the local experience both hogla and khor have a natural power to control the room temperature. As we use, we have already planted new.
