Royal Trek

  • Royal Trek


This trek is known as the "Royal Trek" because this route was travelled by Prince Charles of England and celebrity like Mick Jagger. It’s a short trek in the Annapurna region starting from Pokhara after driving to Bijaypur Khola, taking you on a four-day round through the Himalayan foothills ending up at Begnas where we catch a boat across the lake then drive back to Pokhara.

This is a very enjoyable short trek, mainly for those who don't have time for a longer trek or an expedition. The beauty of this trek is that being the shortest trek it offers amazing views of Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Annapurna IV, Machapuchre, Lamjung Himal, Dhaulagiri and other nearby peaks providing an insight to the simple way of village life.

During the Royal trekking there is no facility of hotels or lodges, so groups and their staff must be fully self-sufficient. This trek is only possible as a camping trek.
