Generations of rural village inhabitants of Himachal Pradesh, India, have used "chulhas," a traditional cook stove. Our project investigated the viability of improved chulhas in Himachal Pradesh. We tested two prototype chulhas prior to seeking feedback from local stakeholders. Utilizing stakeholder feedback in addition to our own test results, we designed and built an improved chulha. Finally, we questioned the practicality of improved chulhas in this region based on our observations, India’s increasing LPG use and India’s infrastructure development.
