Dhorpatan Hunting Tour is the only hunting tour in Nepal that is legally allowed. Otherwise, others are banned since many parts of the country are marked as protected areas, and Nepal is very true in making efforts to protect the environment and the wild lives at any cost.

Dhorpatan hunting reserve was established in 1987 and covers an area of 1325 km2 below the Dhaulagiri Himal of western Nepal. Dhorpatan, the only hunting reserve, is the primary habitat of Blue sheep, including other animals like Leopard, Ghoral, Barking deer, Wild boar, Langur and Himalayan Black bear. Each year only a few hunting operations are allowed when only certain species of animals are permitted to hunt. 

After getting the hunting permit from the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation under the government of Nepal, we will set up a camp within the hunting areas with their permission. A maximum of two weeks is allowed for camping inside the reserve. On this remarkable journey, we can also have fantastic views of the Dhaulagiri range, Annapurna, Fishtail and Manaslu Himal.
