Nepal went through a devastating civil war from 1996 to 2006 and 16000 people were killed in that war. 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.
