Dhodial Pheasantry is located on Karakorum Highway in the village of Dhodial, Mansehra District,
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan, 40 kilometres (25 mi) from Abbottabad, towards the village of
Shinkiari. It covers an area of 21 acres (8.5 ha). The Dhodial campus of Hazara University is
located near the facility.
In 2001, when Hazara University planned to expand its campus over 204 acres (83 ha), then
Governor of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Lt. Gen Iftikhar Hussain Shah ordered the pheasantry to be
relocated to the Jaba Sheep Farm. The Inevitable Flight, a documentary film about this issue,
was made by a Pakistani Canadian documentary filmmaker, Azfar Rizvi. This brought the issue
under public scrutiny. Subsequently other factors kicked in and mobilized enough public and
political support that the relocation was cancelled
An information center has been developed in the aviary to accommodate visitors, facilitate researchers, and spread awareness among local pheasant breeders. More than 500 people visit the aviary daily. The entry fee for the aviary is 10 Pakistani rupees per person.
In 2011, the aviary was closed to the public due to the supposed spread of bird flu. By July, all of the birds had been vaccinated and the aviary was opened to the public again on July 5, 2011
