Guerilla Trek (Non Tourist Area) Camping

Guerilla Trek (Non Tourist Area) Camping

(12 N / 13 D)

overview

The Guerilla Trekking routes of Nepal offer walks along terrains and trails that pass by the Dhorpatan Hunting Reserve and goes on to Rukum and Rolpa. The beautiful pine forests, the meadows and the magnificent terrains offer an excellent experience of exploring the true beauty of Nepal. The local settlement has a predominance of Tibetan and Hindu residents. You can view some of the prominent peaks such as the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, API, and enjoy the interesting vistas of the surrounding lands from the Jaljala pass at an elevation of 3,107m.

The Guerilla Trekking 12 Night 13 Day Tour begins at Darbang and ends at Sulichaur. The reason why the trek is named as the Guerrilla trek is because the trail of the trek was used by Maoists during the 2006 Nepalese Civil War. The trek is along a non tourist trekking trail, which has recently been opened for trekking by the Nepal government. There are quite a few stories relating to the war that have not left the borders of the region, and only the locals can tell you about them. Apart from the unique experience of the breathtaking beauty, there is a history of the place that might interest you during your breaks at the teahouses and tented camp.

itinerary

  • Day 01

    Kathmandu – Beni 830m (8 hours by bus)

  • Day 02

    Beni to Takam 1665m (6hours)

    From the Myagdi district headquarters you follow a gravel road for 24km to Darbang and start walking. Takam is a three hour walk away with Gurjal Himal towering overhead

  • Day 03

    Takam to Lamsung 2250m (6 hours)

    This is where the scenery starts getting even more dramatic. This is wha Nepal used to be like before the trekkers got here. Locals are not used to foreigners and have a lot of stories to tell about the war

  • Day 04

    Lamsung to Gurjaghat 3020m (7 hours)

    Climb through dense pine forests, with musk deer darting in the undergrowth. The meadows on the ridge offer 180 degree views of Dhaulagiri the entire range up to ChurenHimal in the west.

  • Day 05

    Dhorpatan to Nisi Dhor (5 hours)

    You cross over from Myagdi to Baglung and into the former Tibetan refugee camp which was  serviced by an airfield built by the Swiss in the 1950s. This is also the entrance to Dhorpatan, a Hunting Reserve, where you can spot mountain goats and blue sheeps(Bharal)

  • Day 06

    This is a paradise for birds. Watch danphes pheasants, and other migratory species that you have seen only in bird guides. Hard to imagine that people fought a war here. There are cow sheds in the monsoon, but in the winter these high pastures are deserted.

     

  • Day 07

    Nisi Dhor to Tallo Sera(7 hours)

    Cross over from Baglung to Rukum into Magar country and enter the

    Fromer Maoist base area. There are dense forests all the way, so it must

    have been easy to hide here from the helicopter patrols. The villages are

    picturesque and there is always some kind of Magar festival going on.

     

  • Day 08

    Tallo Sera to Rujhikhola(6 hours)

    Walk to Lukum in Rukum, a village populated only by Magars and

    Dalits(low cast). This is about as medieval as it gets in Nepal nowadays

  • Day 09

    Rujhikhola to Thabang(5 hours)

    Thabang is the cradle of the Maoist revolution. It was damaged in army

    attacks and parts of the town were flattened by ‘tora bora’ mortar shells

    dropped from helicopters. There has been some development of

    infrastructure after the war ended, and the people are eager and friendly

  • Day 10

    Thabang to Jaljale(5 hours)

    The highest point in Jaljale is Dharampani (3900m) and there is a great

    view from Apisaipal in the west to Dhaulagiri in the east.

  • Day 11

    Jajala to Jelbang(6 hours)

    Now we’re moving down from the high mountains and the village are

    ethnically mixed.

  • Day 12

    Jelbang to Suliochaur(6 hours)

    This is where we finally get to Rolpa and the roadhead. Rolpa was also a

    rebel base area and for many of the ten years of war under total Maoist

    control. You can eat at one of the many commune restaurants run by

    Maoist cooperative, where staff are relatives of those who were killed in the

    fightings.

  • Day 13

    Sulichaur to Kathmandu(13 hours by bus)
