Days: 15 / Difficulty: 3 of 5 (Moderate to strenuous)

Introduction to Guerilla Trek
A new trekking route from Myagdi to Rukum follows trails used by the Maoists during the war.
Now, trekkers can retrace the footsteps of the guerillas and imagine what it must have been like to hike and fight in this kind of terrain. The trail starts in Beni, skirts Baglung, passes the Dhorpatan Hunting Reserve and goes on to Rukum and Rolpa, takes up to 13 days. All along, there are spectacular views of the Dhaulagiri range from high ridges and large meadows fringed by pine forests. The trail has a historic attraction, but there are also challenges of infrastructure and making locals aware of how they can benefit from tourism.

Minimum 2 participants in group

Itinerary in details

Day 1: Arrival in Kathmandu 
Arrival in Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport and you will be met at the airport by our representative who will be waiting with a Swiss Family Treks sign outside the terminal and transfer to Hotel by private car. Welcome drink and after you settle into the hotel there will be a group briefing with your tour leader. He will discuss the trek details and co-ordinate any last minute arrangements. Stay overnight at Hotel.

Day 2: Kathmandu to Pokhara by flight (35 minutes) and drive to Beni 830m, 4 hours.
Fly from Kathmandu to Pokhara in the morning and 4 hour drive by private car to Beni. Overnight in Lodge.


Day 3: Trek from Beni to Takam 1665m/6hours
Morning 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. Stay overnight at Lodge.

Day 4: Trek from Takam to Lamsung 2250m/6 hours
This is where the scenery starts getting even more dramatic. This is what 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. Stay overnight at Lodge.

Day 5: Trek from 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 Churen Himal in the west. Stay overnight at Lodge.

Day 6: Trek from Gurjaghat to Dhorpatan 2860m/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 sheep (Bharal). Stay overnight at Lodge.

Day 7: Trek from Dhorpatan to Nisi Dhor 5 hours
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. Stay overnight at Lodge.

Day 8: Trek from Nisi Dhor to Tallo Sera 7 hours
Cross over from Baglung to Rukum into Magar country and enter the former 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. Stay overnight at Lodge.

Day 9: Trek from 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. Stay overnight at Lodge.

Day 10: Trek from 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. Stay overnight at Lodge.

Day 11: Trek from Thabang to Jaljale 5 hours
The highest point in Jaljale is Dharampani (3900m) and there is a great view from Api and Saipal in the west to Dhaulagiri in the east. Stay overnight at Lodge.

Day 12: Trek from Jajala to Jelbang 6 hours
Now we’re moving down from the high mountains and the villages are ethnically mixed. Stay overnight at Lodge.

Day 13: Trek from Jelbang to Suliochaur 6 hours
This is where we finally get to Rolpa and the road head. 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 staffs are relatives of those who were killed in the fighting. Stay overnight at Lodge.

Day 14: Drive from Sulichaur to Kathmandu by private car which almost takes 9 hours and transfer to Hotel.

Day 15: After breakfast transfer to international airport as per your flight schedule.
