The improved tuin was developed and tested at the village of Mahestar (about 60 km west of
Kathmandu). Based on the experience gained here, the design has been further developed
into a double-cable design. Although costing more it provides better balance and can carry a
greater load. Double-cable prototypes have been built in the villages of Kalleri, Pimaltar and
Balkhu, in Nepal’s Dhading district.
