  • Guerrilla Trek

The Guerrilla Trek presents an awe-inspiring voyage through the main region of post-conflict times (1996 to 2006).  The trail passes through the Myagdi, Rolpa and Rukum districts, which were the epicenter of the Maoist-War in Nepal.  These districts are considered to be the homelands for numerous activists.  Today the war has gone and the hills are safe and quiet once again.  The Guerrilla Trek will allow you to visit these striking hills and encounter a very generous people who will make your trek a perfect one.

The Guerrilla trek is blessed with widespread biodiversity and natural beauty.  Enjoy captivating waterfalls, pleasant lakes, rivers and of course the magnificent Himalaya located to the north.

On this trek, we will be walking through the same route where the guerrillas of the past endeavoured to eliminate the monarchy in Nepal. We will also see the cavern in which the revolutionaries used to hide themselves in during the revolution.
