Hunting in Nepal

Duration: 19 Days   |  

We organize a hunting tour in Nepal. Hunting in this ecological awakening age hunting seems quite contradictory but Nepal has been a favored ground for hunters since the 9th century. In the Himalayan country, controlled hunting is allowed with proper licenses and certain seasons of the year. A hunting license is issued by the Department of National Park and Wildlife Conservation in Kathmandu and there are a few hunting outfitters who can make arrangements.

The hunting groups normally trek or fly (helicopter) into the high terrain areas in quest of the Himalayan Tahr and the Blue Sheep. Mid-elevation prizes include wild goat and sheep; in the Terai lowlands, deer are sought. Hunting in Nepal is permitted only in designated areas, and a licensed guide must accompany hunting parties.

Dhorpatan Hunting Reserve is one of the prime habitats of blue sheep, a highly prized trophy animal, which is the main target of hunters. Other game species are Ghoral, Serow, Himalayan Tahr, Black Bear Pheasant, and Partridge. Endangered species of the area include the red panda and cheer pheasant.

Besides hunting, Dhorpatan is also an attractive destination for the trekker and wildlife enthusiast as protection has enabled animal numbers to increase in this rarely visited area.

Dhorpatan can be reached from Pokhara within the 5 days of a hike away or there is also the option of flying to Dolpa. The best time to visit Dhorpatan is February-April and August-October. Accommodation here is on the tented camp which can be provided by the organizing agencies or at one of the villages.
