Overview on Guerrilla Trek in Nepal

The guerilla trek is one of the Himalayas’ most fascinating and thrilling trails. The trail was discovered not so long; it was prohibited from the outside world since the area was under the control of Maoist rebels (1996-2006) who were fighting against the government. Those days it was forbidden, and anybody trespassing would be facing treason. After the clash subsided and things returned to normal, the area became a popular tourist spot and attracted many people around the globe.

The trek is 16 days long and will go through some remote villages and pure wilderness. Since it opened recently, the region remains untouched and not much explored by visitors. The change in topography from Lowlands to the highlands will astonish you. Our experts will guide you on the journey with all the facilities. Similarly, accommodation and food will be included in the package.

Over the hills and far away, walking through that wonderful terrain is so full of joy that it will remain within you for a long time. Today's hike will be mostly through lush green forest and hilly paths, passing through a few remote villages. The forest of birch, pine, and fir is so soothing to walk through.

Eventually, we reach Thankot, the main entrance of the Kathmandu valley. Then you are taken to the hotel, and if you are not slack after the drive, you can visit places like Thamel and buy souvenirs.
