Guerrilla Trek (The Shangrila Trek)

Trip Code: NGT

18 Days

Rukmini Lake of Rukum

Guerrilla Trekking, also known as e Shangrila Trek, is a newly opened trail which reminisces about how Maoist combatants fought People's War in Central and Western Nepal. On Guerrilla trekking visitors will see the remnants in some conflict areas particularly in Myagdi, Rukum and Rolpa districts where Nepal's ten years conflict (from 1996 to 2006) was rampant between Nepalese Army and the Maoists. In the present context, this historic trail is named 'Guerrilla Trekking' and has been promoted as 'War Tourism Product'.

Myagdi, Rukum, and Rolpa districts are the homeland to many Maoists combatants as well as they are abundant in wide-ranging natural resources and biodiversity. 60% of Dhorpatan Hunting Reserve lies in Rukum. Here one can explore waterfalls, rivers, caves, and beautiful lakes and the eye-catching, sublime Himalaya to the north. Along the trail, one can experience immense peace, the beauty of nature and warm hospitality of the friendly locals.
Guerrilla Trek begins in Beni, where the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri treks begin and end in Sulichaur.  The trekking trail passes through the Dhorpatan Hunting Reserve and goes on up to Rukum and Rolpa districts.
Trek Himalayan has launched Guerrilla trekking as a promotional new trekking product for researchers and travelers around the world with great opportunity to explore the Post Conflict territory, encounter the real guerrillas who were recruited at the People's war and share their experiences.
