Situated in the districts of Baglung, Myagdi, and Rukum, the area is surrounded by the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna mountain ranges, providing a picturesque backdrop for trekking enthusiasts. Dhorpatan is home to various wildlife species, including blue sheep, Himalayan tahr, red panda, musk deer, and various pheasants. Efforts are underway to promote conservation and sustainable eco-tourism in the region.
Ramchandra Das envisions establishing a Bana Prastha Ashram in Dhorpatan, Nepal. The ashram will serve as a retreat for devotees seeking to retire and spend their remaining years immersed in self-discovery, spiritual teachings, and the philosophy of Sri Aurobindo. The facility will accommodate Sadhakas from Kathmandu, Tarai, and Gulmi branches in their old age.
The Ashram is planned to provide essential amenities, including central heating to combat the cold climate of Dhorpatan. It will feature a doctor’s office and nursing center to cater to the healthcare needs of the residents. Additionally, the center will offer a variety of activities, such as meditation, karma yoga, traditional yoga practices, mantra chanting, and bhajans, creating a holistic environment for spiritual growth and well-being.
