Dhorpatan hiking, on the southern flank of Dhaulagiri Mountain, is one of Nepal’s most unique trek packages. The wildlife reserve provides for controlled hunting and is a popular hunting location. Musk deer, red panda, and wolf are among the endangered species protected by the reserve.
This lovely hunting reserve covers 1325 square kilometers in the districts of Rukkum, Baglung, and Myagdi. Mixed hardwood forest and other dry climate vegetations make up the vast biodiversity. Fir, pine, birch, rhododendron, hemlock, juniper, and oak trees line the trail. The hike is a relaxing stroll through these forests, where you may appreciate the tranquility and landscape. Red pandas, blue sheep, cheer pheasant, Himalayan Tahr, Ghoral, black bear, and partridge can all be found in the hunting reserve. It is a paradise for hikers and nature lovers who like wildlife.
