About Royal trek
The Royal Trek is one of the shortest treks of 9 days and 8 nights that follows a shrub like path along the foothills of Annapurna, north of the Pokhara valley. It is so-named because of Prince Charles and his 90 persons entourage had explored this route in the early eighties.
The journey of Royal trek begins in the beautiful lakeside city of Pokhara and passes through beautiful Gurung hamlets. During the trek, you will be able to 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 trek presents a true picture of uniqueness 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 really close to nature, culture and lifestyle.
