The Guerrilla Trail Trek, a newly explored trekking destination, offers an authentic but terrible history of fighting between the Nepal Government and Maoists. The trekkers must have a chance to see the routes and hideouts used by guerrillas during the trek. The maps and guidebooks of the Guerrilla Trek were co-produced by American Author Alonzo Lyons since it has a different section of the time frame for the hike. Finally, the Guerrilla Trail Trek believes in becoming a War Tourism Product in Nepal’s Himalayan country.

The Guerrilla Trail takes you to a magical place with a colorful sculpture of wildflowers. Also, there are green meadows and forests of rhododendrons with over a hundred bird species and wildlife. Another attraction of the Guerrilla Trek is leopards, bears, musk deer, and wild boars. Moreover, you can have extensive views of Sisne, Putha Himal, and Dhaulagiri, marking the beautiful landscapes–populated mainly by Magar, since it is a delightful experience to look closely into their way of life and culture.

Trekking enthusiasts can make a difference in their unique adventure through the untouched Guerrilla Trail Trek. The reason is its authentic trekking, its original location. Indeed, the characteristics of the guerrilla Trek explore the war between the people of Nepal.
