Royal Trek  

Printer Version Page

This trek has been named the Royal Trek after Prince Charles and his troupe of 90 persons explored the route in the early eighties. The Royal Trek is one of the short and soft treks that follow an easy trail exploring the foothills of Annapurna. The maximum ascent is 1,730 meters and thus, there is hardly any issue with acclimatization. This trek is basically designed for the beginners who have limited time and is also regarded as the platform for other grade of trails.
The Royal Trek provides excellent opportunities to experience cultural and geographical diversity of Nepal. The trek starts from the beautiful lakeside city of Pokhara and continues through traditional Gurung hamlets.  During the trek, one will be able to enjoy stunning views of landscapes, magnificent Himalayan ranges of Annapurna, Machhapuchhre and the Langtang. The trip finally ends at scenic Begnas Lake, which is about 30 km west from Pokhara City.
