Royal trek got its name when Prince Charles and his 90 person’s entourage explored this route in the early eighties. This is one of the short and easy treks available near Pokhara that goes through the foothills of Annapurnas. The trek then ends at the beautiful Begnas Lake. This scenic lake lies about 15km west of Pokhara City. The Royal trek doesn’t need a camp crew now and local homes are available for food and lodging throughout the trek. Staying with local family allows us to enjoy the traditional lifestyles of the inhabitants of that area. It is an amazing fact that their ancient religious practices and traditions have remained unchanged for thousands of years. Trekking through the Royal trail provides an opportunity to experience the diverse cultures of the people of the region. The Royal trek also offers spectacular mountain views complimented by a panorama of hillside terraces and the magnificent Annapurna Range. So, the trip is ideally designed for easy and short time trekkers who will definitely have an unforgettable trekking holiday.
Poonhill Ghorepani trek is a similar alternative to this trek suitable for short time holiday with family and children.
