The Royal Trek is so-named because Prince Charles and his 90 person entourage had explored this route in the early eighties. It is one of the shortest trek that takes you along the foothills of Annapurna – the north of the Pokhara valley. This trek provides the opportunities for meaningful cultural experiences with the diverse people and their cultures.
The journey of Royal trek begins in the beautiful lakeside city of Pokhara and passes through beautiful Gurung village. During the trek, we enjoy stunning views of the eloquently built hillside rice terraces, the magnificent Annapurna range, Machapuchhre [fishtail] and the Langtang Mountain views. The trip finally ends at the scenic Begnas Lake which is about 30 km west of Pokhara City.
The Royal trekking trip is basically recommended for beginners who are restricted by time to trek longer. This Royal trek presents a true picture of uniqueness and allowing us the chance to capture traditional lifestyles of the tribes whose ancient religious practices and traditions have remained unchanged for thousands of years. Compared to other trekking areas in Annapurna region, Royal trekking route is less crowded, so you can get more close to nature, culture and lifestyle.
