Nepal: Guerrilla trek to showcase former Maoist war sites

KATHMANDU, Nepal — In a bid to make good on the promises made to former Maoist rebels, Nepal unveiled new trekking routes through the battlegrounds of the country's bloody, decade-long insurgency this week. Christened the Guerrilla Trek, the 14- 19- and 27-day routes will take hikers across rugged mountains, rivers lined with lush wheat fields, caves and centuries old villages, where Maoist soldiers once dug trenches and ambushed government troops.
