Short and Easy Royal trek Overview

Royal trek is a short yet legendary trek that doesn’t demand many trekking days but still rewards us with spectacular views of the beautiful Himalayas in the Annapurna region. Like many other treks, the Royal trekking begins from the beautiful city of Pokhara. You will get a chance to trek through the beautiful villages and know the local people and their culture better. Through the trek, we will accommodate you at basic lodges and guest houses. Whereas, if you would like to experience something that is wholly different then, we can also make room for you at the homes of the welcoming and warm locals.

A mother community in this area formed to develop its economy and a good system in the village will welcome us to our camp or guest house with a typical Nepali cultural show. Dance and enjoy along with the locals and if you would want, you can feel free to donate to the community.

As mentioned earlier, the Royal trek starts from Pokhara, a beautiful and mesmerizing lake city where we will be spending a few nights resting and relaxing. You can also make someday hike trips to the surrounding hills in Pokhara, a peaceful and fascinating city. Royal Annapurna trek is an attitude-free trek and you need not worry about bringing along children or elderly people.

If you happen to be wondering where the Royal trekking got its name from, it is after Prince Charles and his team trekked in this area that it became highly popularized as The Royal Trek. Get ready to be mesmerized by the stunning viewpoints to watch the sunrise/sunset and Annapurna ranges.

Royal Trekking a great amazing experience

We recently did the Royal trek with Alpine Eco Trek; it was a great amazing experience. Alpine Eco conducts a tight ship, and the owner, Mr. Ram was very prompt in replying to emails and WhatsApp messages while booking our trip. Our guide Mr. Dhurba and porter Mr. Rajan on the trek were very kind, honest, professional and Patient. The views of the Annapurna Himalayas were amazing. Highly recommended.
