“Royal Trek” named after Prince Charles and his 90 person entourage had explored this route in the early eighties. This particular route through the Annapurna region is one of the most famous and easygoing. Trekking to these area trekkers can experience real authentic culture of Gurkhas inhabitants and their typical life style.


Royal Trek is a pleasant trek which starts outside of Pokhara at Begnas Lake. The Royal Trek is one of the shortest trek that follow a shrub like path along the foothills of Annapurna, north of the Pokhara valley.The trail takes us to a Gurung village and then to fabulous views of Machhapuchhre, Annapurna, and Lamjung. The trek generally takes 4 to 5 days. It is extremely enjoyable and requires no technical knowledge making it an excellent trek for beginners and elderly people. The journey leads through ethnic villages with extremely rich and diverse culture. It also offers panoramic views of the Pokhara valley, the northern Annapurna range and Mt. Fishtail while walking through forests of magnolia and rhododendron. If you like physical activity in the outdoors, the “Royal Trek” can be a flavorful, challenging experience. The Royal Trek is one of the shortest treks that follow a shrub like path along the foothills of Annapurna, north of the Pokhara valley. This trek provides the opportunities for meaningful cultural experiences with the diverse mix of people and cultures that inhabit this region.

The journey of Royal trek begins in the beautiful lakeside city of Pokhara and passes through beautiful Gurung hamlets. The trek begins from Bijayapur Khola 5km east of Pokhara valley and ends at Chisapani. This is only 5 days easy and short trek, but the views are definitely not compromised. You can view three monster Himalayan peaks over 8000m Annapurna I, mighty Dhaulagiri visible to the west and the massif of Manaslu to the east. In fact the entire Annapurna ranges stretches out before us, including the iconic fishtail Machhapuchhre. We can customize and easily extend the trip to enjoy more of the magic of Nepal. During the trek, we are able to enjoy stunning views of the eloquently built hillside rice terraces, the magnificent Annapurna range, Machhapuchhre(fishtail) and the Langtang Mountain views. The trip finally ends at the scenic Begnas Lake which is about 30 km west of Pokhara City.
