The Royal Trek in Nepal

The royal trekking is a short and easy trek at the maximum elevation of around (2170 m)/ (7119 feet) in the foothills of the Annapurna with the stunning views of the Annapurna and Manaslu mountain ranges. This route is known as royal trek because the Britain’s Prince Charles and his 90 person entourage explored the route in the early eighties when he visited Nepal. The trek offers you great views of the mountains around you, lush forests, rice fields, and a variety of communities.’’

The royal trek begins from beautiful city Pokhara, which is well known for Himalayan range, numerous small and large lakes, temples and natural caves. Moreover, you can take part in various adventure activities such as boating, rafting, bungee jumping and canoeing. Then, the trail goes through amazing gurung and magar village, and come to an end in chitwan national park’s wilderness. The royal chitwan national park is home to 56 types of mammals (one-horned rhinoceros, Bengal tiger sloth bear and so on), reptiles, measure fish, butterflies, and other animals.

Therefore, the royal trek is relatively short trek, which provide impressive views of the Annapurna and Manaslu mountain ranges including peaks such as Machhapuchhare (fish tail), Lamjung Himal, and AnnapurnaⅡ.So, this trek is suitable for those who are new to trekking and have limited time but want to experience the beauty of the Himalayas. However, the royal trek is a great alternative to more touristic treks in the Annapurna region like Annapurna base camp trek or the Annapurna circuit trek.
