The Guerrilla Trek will take tourists through the epicenter of the conflict, in western Nepal, where the first skirmishes were fought in Rolpa and Rukum districts in 1996.
Unveiling the Guerrilla Trek, along with a map and guidebook written by American Alonzo Lyons, Dahal – who is now the leader of a legitimate political party and a member of parliament – said the trek has the potential to become a “war tourism product” like conflict sites in Vietnam, Russia and China.
The trail starts from war-ravaged Myagdi district and passes through other conflict-hit areas like Baglung, Puthyan, Rolpa and Rukum—which are still home to many former revolutionaries.
Here thousands of Maoist guerrillas once dug trenches and ambushed their enemy during the insurgency. When the Maoists attacked Beni, the district headquarters of Myagdi, in 2004, hundreds of Maoist guerrillas trekked up and down the rugged mountains of Rukum. And hundreds of combatants lost their lives. Part of the Guerrilla Trek follows the route the Maoists used to carry their wounded.
