Overview

Dhorpatan trek is a pleasant trek through mixed country and views of impressive mountains. The spacious Dhorpatan valley is refreshing and Jaljala is the best viewpoint to see the amazing views of Dhaulagiri and Annapurnas, Mt. Fishtail, and Manasalu range with good sunrise. The major ethnic groups of this region are Magar, Thakali, Braman, Chettri, and Sunar. 

The amalgamation of different ethnic groups has resulted in a mixed pattern of cultures.  The vegetations include fir, pine birch, rhododendron, hemlock, oak juniper, and others along with animals like Leopard, goral, serow, Himalayan Thar, black bear, barking deer, etc.
