Dhorpatan Hunting Reserve

Dhorpatan Hunting Reserve is Nepal’s one and only legal hunting reserve till date. Established in 1987, it covers parts of Rukum, Baglung and Myagdi districts, spanning over an area of 1325 square km. Canopied by one of the tallest mountains, the Dhaulagiri, Dhorpatan ranges at an altitude of 2,850 to 5,500 m (9,350 to 18,040 ft) and has been an ideal destination for hunting enthusiasts.

Dhorpatan was launched as a canned hunting spot, with an intention of encouraging sport tourism in the area. It is one of the main habitats of Blue Sheep, a highly prized trophy animal and a major target for the hunters. Other species include ghoral, serow, Himalayan tahr, black bear, pheasant and partridge, whereas musk deer, wolf, red panda and cheer pheasant are enlisted as the endangered species of the area.

The reserve is divided into six blocks for hunting management purposes and is characterized by alpine, sub alpine, and high temperate vegetation. Hunting here requires special permits, which is issued by the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation in Kathmandu. Dhorpatan is also an enticing destination for the trekkers and wildlife conservationists as objective protection has gradually ascended animal counts in this sparsely visited area.
