    Trip Overview

    Trip Highlights

    • Historical guerrilla trail
    • Change from war to peace, the battle to hospitality
    • Ancient and traditional lifestyles
    • Untouched culture and life without modernism
    • Dhorpatan Hunting Reserve

    The Guerrilla Trek in Nepal leads you through the historical towns that were once caught badly by the Civil War. This trip is also known as the Shangrila trek, which is promoted to show how this war zone has successfully transferred to a peace zone and tourism has flourished rapidly throughout the area.

    Trekking through the Guerrilla trail begins from Beni, which is the district center of Myagdi. This immaculate journey covers the famous and only hunting reserve of Nepal- Dhorpatan. The journey passes steep terrain and exhilarating valleys, from picturesque ridges to ravines, with the thick woods of rhododendrons to the not modernized villages. Trekkers throughout the Guerrilla trail can observe how people without modern facilities are still enjoying their nomadic lifestyles. The trail has got basic lodges, so it’s a typical excursion through the remote countryside. If you are looking for an isolated trail where the landscape is still untouched, not a trekkers' traffic, the Guerrilla Trek or the Shangrila Trek is recommended for you. During the trek, you can take a side trip towards the Yarsha (the caterpillar fungus) trail. You have 4 different itineraries that depend on your schedule. It begins from 2 weeks, 19 days, 20 days, and 27 days (Kathmandu-Kathmandu). Please, feel free to contact Nepal Kameleon Holidays to customize your itinerary and trek with the storyteller in Nepal.
