Guerrilla Trek

  • Overview
  • Details Itinerary
  • Included
Guerrilla Trek is the newly opened trekking trail which primarily covers the Far-Western region of Nepal. The Guerrilla Trek provides a novel opportunity to travel and trek along the trail used by the Maoists during the period of decade-long insurgency. The Guerrilla Trek mostly covers the districts like Rolpa, Rukum, Myagdi, among others, the districts which were the ones most affected during the period of armed conflict. While it is true that the Maoist civil war affected almost all the hilly and mountainous districts in the country, the Guerrilla Trek covers up mainly the districts like Rukum and Rolpa, mostly because they were the districts which were the stronghold of the Maoists and of course the most affected. Guerrilla Trek route intends to take the trekkers to the places where one of the most deadly insurgencies rocked the nation for over a decade. Guerrilla Trek has special significance as it helps to take the trekkers to such historic places which have overseen so much of change over the period of time. Guerrilla Trek has turned out to be something like that of the war tourism just like various war-related tourism packages in Vietnam and China.
Guerrilla Trek starts from the West of Pokhara city (Myagdi district) part of Annapurna Trekking Region. Guerrilla Trekking trail bypasses along the route where thousands of Maoist guerrillas once dug trenches and ambushed the army, through rugged mountains, rivers, paddy fields, caves, landscape and Ethnic Magar villages. Almost fittingly, Guerrilla Trek ends in Rolpa district, the most affected district during the period of Maoist insurgency.
 Guerrilla Trek offers you a trip through the vivid pictures of post-conflict territory. Besides the prospect of visiting the villages affected by the civil war, this trek is also filled with natural resources and is rich in cultural heritage and ethnic variety. Guerrilla Trek is suitable for organizing camping and home stay because there are few hotels and tea houses on trail but unfortunately these tea houses are not ample for the purpose of tea house trek. Guerrilla Trek is filled with exciting activities like rafting, adventure jungle safari, exciting paragliding, high Mountain Flight and many more. The trekking all along the Guerrilla trek provides a chance to view the routes and the shelters that were used by the guerrillas in the time of conflict to the hikers. Many people may have doubt about this trekking trek but it is for sure that no matter whatever the reason this trek is named as Guerrilla Trek at present, this place is extremely peaceful. Guerrilla Trek crosses all the way through attractive green valley’s forming silhouette in the powerful Himalaya comprising notable Dhaulagiri (8167m) and other mountains with close look. Furthermore, it includes impressive waterfalls and Nepal’s only one hunting reserve area with beautiful lakes.
