The Royal Trek

  • Overview
  • Details Itinerary
Being one of the shortest treks in the Annapurna region of Nepal, the Royal Trek is named after the exploration of the Prince Charles and his 90 follows during the early eighties. The trek offers you the beautiful opportunity to expand your cultural awareness, view majestic mountains, and enjoy the blessings of nature. You might not want to miss the opportunity to explore the Annapurna region if you happen to be in hurry; no matter what, very short trekking packages can offer you the complete blend of nature, cultural, and spiritual awakenings.

Throughout the trek, you shall cross through several Gurung settlements, enjoying the views of staggering Annapurna range, Machhapuchhre, and Langtang, rice cultivation on terraced slopes, etc. Typically starting from the beautiful city of Pokhara, the terminal point of the trek is the beautiful Begnas Lake. Anybody with moderate physical fitness can complete this trek without any hassle. You shall be collecting some cultural experiences in the Gurung communities, their religious and cultural practices, and lifestyles. This less crowded and less busy trekking package has something different and distinct to offer you.
