This section brings you into a complete no-man’s-land, with spectacular desolate landscapes. The views of the Himalaya are amazing, especially from the Jalja La (3386 m), from where you can see a whole range of mountains. Especially the Dhaulagiri(8167 m) and Gurja Himal (7193 m) are very close. Dhorpatan Wildlife reserve is a beautiful, rough area, which until now has only been discovered by hunters, hunting for blue sheep which are quite abundant here. For about 3 days you don’t encounter any settlements, till the Jang La (4519 m) brings you into Dolpa.
