overview

The Guerrilla Trek is a less explored trekking route which is around the remote side of the western region of Nepal in the districts of Rukum and Rolpa. This trekking package has become popular among travelers day by day but its environment still remains unspoiled away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. This region is not tainted by modern phenomena like commercialization and industrialization so this trekking package is perfect if you want to rejuvenate in an environment away from the chaos of the city. This trek follows the path taken by the Maoist guerrillas some decades ago during the Maoist insurgency.

On this trekking journey, you will get to witness and interact with different ethnicities including the Kshetri, Brahmin, Gurung, Magar, Newar, Thakuri and other underprivileged groups. You will get the chance to look at the life of different people from close proximity and examine them. The route follows the way across places like Beni of Myagdi district from where it initially starts; then it goes across Baglung district, moves through the DhorPatan Hunting reserve and then heads to district Rukum and Rolpa.

Tour Highlights

  • Explore the geographical diversity across Myagdi-Baglung route
  • Savor the eco-tourism trek in a less crowded path

  • Visit the Dhorpatan hunting reserve; single legal hunting reserve in Nepal

Good to know

Trekking in Nepal is a unique understanding in itself since the culture as well as the surrounding is gorgeous. Here are some key points that you will need for trekking in the Himalayan land of Nepal listed as do’s and don’ts.

Do’s

  • Greet and smile to the locals by saying “Namaste” or “Tashidelek”
  • You have to be well aware to make yourself either to walk in a group as well as maintaining distance from the people you see walking either behind or in front of you.
  • If you are planning or trying something new during the trek make sure you consult your guide beforehand.
  • Communicate with the guide about the things you might need next day as you can pack it in your pouch while rest is supported by the porter for your convenience.
  • Make sure you donate at the donation boxes at monasteries around the trekking zone as they do not have ticket charges for the visitors around this trek.
  • If you feel uneasy and uncomfortable make sure you inform your guide while ascending higher altitude as your health is the most important factor while ascending higher altitude.

Don’t

  • Make sure you esteem the local culture and beliefs although it is uneasy for you to believe it and do not criticize their beliefs and values
  • Without prior permission of the local people in the trek, do not take pictures of the local people.
  • Do not sense clumsiness when folks gaze at you; they are just interested in tourists and have no ill intents.
  • Do not expect profligate services round the trekking zone; basic facilities can only be provided given the geographical complications.
  • Make sure you do not harm the floras and faunas during the trek; be responsible about the environment around you.
  • Make sure you do not be generous by providing money to people; such an act will only enhance children and beggars because it may upsurge them to beg more from visitors around the trek.
