Guerrilla Trek Trail Nepal

As the name suggests, the Guerrilla Trek trail follows the footsteps of the Maoist guerrilla solders during the decade-long insurgency. The route begins in Beni of Myagdi district, to Baglung, passing through the Dhorpatan Hunting reserve, and goes on to Rukum and Rolpa districts, home to many revolutionaries. Trekkers along this route can retrace the footsteps of the Maoist guerrillas and imagine how they had hiked and fought such hilly terrain. More than 16,000 had lost their lives in the armed insurgency that started in 1996 and ended in 2006 after the signing of the Comprehensive peace accord.

One can have a breathtaking view of the Dhauligiri range and wide meadows with pine trees. The elevation ranges from about 800-meters at Chaurjahari to the peak of PyuthaHimal at 7,245-meter above sea level.

This region is blessed with wide ranging natural resources and biodiversity. Captivating waterfalls, rivers, caves and lakes like Kamala Daha (Lotus lake), and Sun Daha and high Himalaya to the north are some of the main attractions. Paddy is cultivated up to the mid-hills and barley, maize, millet, wheat and potato as well as apples and apricots are farmed in the upper hills of the region. The area also boasts a lot of wonderful high elevation meadow used for monsoon pastureland of cattle and buffalo, and foraging for Yarshagumba, also known as the Himalayan Viagra) in the rugged highland.
