The Guerrilla Trail Trek,  newly explored trekking destination and offers real, but a terrible history was fighting between Nepal Government and Maoist. 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 trek. Finally, the Guerrilla Trail Trek believes in becoming a War Tourism Product in the Himalayan country Nepal.

The Guerrilla Trail takes you to a magical place with a colorful sculpture of wildflowers. Also, there are the green meadows and the 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, also marking the beautiful landscapes–mostly populated by Magar, since it is a delightful experience to look closely into their way of life and culture. The trekking enthusiasts can make the difference as well as 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.
