Guerilla trek launched in Nepal

4th Oct 2012

People on trekking holidays in Nepal now have the chance to retrace the steps of a Maoist insurgency leader during the Nepal Civil War.

The trek takes three weeks to complete, spanning central and western Nepal, retracing the steps of a key figure during what was an extremely difficult time in recent Nepalese history.

The trek takes in many of Nepal's spectacular scenic parts, stretching across green valleys which are neighboured with mountains and rushing waterfalls, lakes and a hunting reserve.

The route was launched by former Maoist chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, who said: "I hope this will be a new chapter in Nepal's tourism. I hope the Guerilla Trek will play an important role."

Speking to AFP about the new route, US travel writer Alonzo Lyons said "Its natural scenery is simply captivating. You also come across diverse cultures".
