Royal Trek Nepal

Pokhara
group size 1-35

Best Season: March-April-May and September-October-November
Among the shortest trekking route, The Royal Trek lies within those categories. It follows a shrub like a path along the foothills of Annapurna, north of the Pokhara valley. It is named a Royal Trek has its own historical background. Prince Charles and his 90 people following had discovered this route in the early eighties. Thus named after him. Royal Trek delivers the chances for significant cultural experiences as it is diverse with the people of different cultures and customs. The journey begins in the beautiful lakeside city of Pokhara, through beautiful Gurung settlements. We will enjoy spectacular views of the movingly built hillside rice terraces, and the magnificent view of Annapurna range, Machapuchhre [fishtail] and the Langtang Mountain during our course of the trek. The trip finally ends at the picturesque 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 the 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.
