Yaks start arriving in the towns, villages and urban centres, with the advent of winter. As part of the tradition of Nasaloo, households slaughter an animal – yak, goat, sheep or an oxen, based on availability and financial status, and hang the meat in an airy, cold, storage, to dry. The dried meat is then cooked during the coldest months in the region. This practice is prevalent across the Gilgit – Baltistan and Chitral region, under different names.
