Tour Details

Guerrilla Trek Nepal is a new trekking route from Myagdi to Rukum that starts in Beni through Baglung, passes the Dhorpatan Hunting Reserve, and reaches Rukum and Rolpa (Epicenter of a decade-long Maoist insurgency) along with the magnificent views of mountains and forests with diverse topography where you can experience the nomadic life of the people there as well as their culture.
