Royal Trek

Royal Trek

 

The Royal Trek is one of the most famous and easiest treks in the Annapurna region. This trek is especially suitable for the beginner and older trekker. The trek has been named the "Royal Trek" as Britain's Prince Charles walked it in the 1980s. It's an excellent trek to do, as it doesn't entail any particular long walking days, but there is plenty to see. The route gradually climbs up through ethnic villages and forests of magnolia and rhododendron. The regions are so unspoiled as to have no

teahouses and therefore we will need to camp. The Royal trek offers panoramic views view of the Pokhara Valley and the beautiful Fishtail mountain (Machhapuchre) as well as the Annapurna range to the north and magnificent lakes surrounded by mountains in the south, Lamjung Himal, Manaslu and Himchuli in the east.
