You can fly by Pilatus porter from kathmandu aa well as from Pokhara.
You can also fly by helicopter from Pokhara. or take a Bus or Jeep from Kathmandu, Butwal, Pokhara which go directly upto Burtibang of Baglung and one can walk upto “Dhopatan in 4-5 hours or so.
It is magnificient place. You must visit.
you can also use Dhorpatan circuit for trekking via Myagdi or Burtibang.

Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask, but I am just getting into hunting with my son. We live near Richmond, VA, and wanted to try Rasawek Hunting Preserve, but we couldn’t find any reviews of it. It’s about an hour west of Richmond: 2861 Hadensville-Fife Rd, Goochland, VA 23063 804-467-9000 Is it any good?
