Since the terrain can be hard and the days long, hikers on these treks should be in good physical condition and have some previous mountain walking experience. Steep climbing may be involved, although it is never necessary to use ropes. Treks at this level can he arranged for periods of 16 to 21 days. Typically, a gradual ascent through a green river valley will lead you up to a number of high passes, where you will reach the altitude of 5416m. Often times, you will get a close insight into the Tibetan culture. Participants should expect to trek above 5416m/17872ft.
Gorilla Trek in Nepal is a relatively newly developed venture, undertaken by only a small number of trekkers. It’s a non-touristic hiking trail, so trekkers can expect a completely different experience than any other trekking option. The Maoists led a 10-year armed revolution in Nepal that gave rise to the Gorilla trekking path. Most of the Maoists lived in this region throughout the war. The hiking groups and experts in Nepal called it gorilla trekking. Our gorilla hikes provide us with an array of multi-ethnic lifestyles, fresh pastures in a green valley, and the beat of Deuda music, a popular tune in the west of Nepal. In addition to those cultural values, we can enjoy the views of the Dhaulagiri Himalayan range to the east and the Api Himal and Saipal Peak to the west.

This Gorilla trekking route offers an exceptional trek through the heart of the post-conflict regions. Nepal Kailash hiking offers you the opportunity to explore gorilla trekking, a newly introduced destination renowned for its natural beauty and friendly people.

The gorilla trek begins with a three- to four-hour drive from Pokhara to Beni. We will drive on the highway and pass through Nayapul. Nayapul is a very popular starting and finishing point for treks to Annapurna Base Camp, Ghorepani Poon Hill trek, Ghandruk, and Khopra Danda. While there are other points as well, the Nayapul is the most useful. Beni is located at the confluence of the very popular river Kaligandaki, which runs from the upper Mustang. The city is in the Myagdi district. Currently, the temple is connected by road; this is one of the busiest corridors because of Muktinath, one of the most important Hindu temples. Rather than staying in Beni, we can drive 25 km further to Darbang on a rough road. Hotel or lodge overnight.
During the Gorilla trek, you will reach Takam village which is an important place in the Myagdi district. As a medieval war weapon, it is a historical place. Takam is also an important archaeological and religious site. It is the site of an ancient war trench. Tatam is a beautiful and scenic village with spectacular views of Mt. Dhaulagiri and Mukut Himal. Magar, Gurung, Brahman, Chhetri, Damai, Kami, Sarki, Thakali, Chantal, and more make up the community. The majority are Brahmans and Chhetris. Dhaulagiri Base Camp and Dhorpatan are also accessible from here.
The gorilla trek is half camping and half tea house, there will be a few nights not able to get to any villages in the Gujarghat and Jaljala, so these nights are we have to carry camping gear and meals. We at Nepal Wilderness arrange tents and camping crew for these nights.
