Hunting trips

in Nepal

Nepal is a relatively small country, located between India and Tibet. Hunting in Nepal is a dare even for the most brave and experienced mountain hunters, because you will have to go to the highest mountains in the world. This is the only country where you can harvest the Himalayan Tahr in its natural habitat and also get a trophy of a Blue Sheep which lives right below the clouds in the sky.

HUNTING

Classic spot-and-stalk mountain hunting. You will get up at 4-5 am, have a light breakfast and start off to the hunting area at about 5-6 am. After the morning hunt, you’ll have lunch and rest in the hunting area. The hunt will continue in the afternoon, approximately after 2 pm. In the evening, you will return back to the camp. Three people accompany each hunter. The altitudes are quite impressive; it will be helpful to take mountain disease medicine.

“This is no game for the weak-kneed and faint-hearted. Hunter success is not high, not because there aren’t enough sheep but because there aren’t enough people with the temperament to become sheep hunters.” Jack O’Connor
