Annapurna Royal Trek Overview

Nepal is a mountainous hilly country full of uphill and downhill amidst dense green lush forests, glacial rivers, and beautiful waterfalls. The multiethnic and multicultural people too are the major attractions of this beautiful nation. Annapurna Royal Trek is a short trekking in Nepal package that gives you the chance to understand the Brave Gurkhas' lifestyle as well as their root together with the splendid mountain ranges.

Annapurna Royal Trekking Detail

The Annapurna Royal Trek starts from vibrant Pokhara to the Lake City of Nepal. The one-hour drive from Pokhara will take you to the Kalikasthan from where you will start your walking in the trail. The trail is famously known as Royal Trek because around the late 80s Prince Charles with his 90 entourage trekked in the route to find out the ex and present British Gurkhas families. Trekking on a trail trekked by the monarch himself would also make you feel like a king or queen. Furthermore, the impeccable hospitality and quality service provided by the Nepal Trekking Routes Treks family would add a gloss to your luxurious trekking in the region. The trail passes by the villages of Gurung, Magar, and some Thakali people along with Brahmin and Chhetri tribes of Nepal. The chance to conduct Small Group Adventure Trekking would be materialized here in Annapurna Royal Trek. The villages with the traditions and rituals unchanged for a century help you know about the self-respect, courtesy, and dignity in your life. It always feels good as a traveler to live like locals, sleep like locals, and eat like locals experiencing the authentic taste of most people. The magnificent view of the mountains like Annapurna, Fishtail, and surrounding Himalayan ranges is the bonus of this trekking, and the green lush forests, caves as well as streams along the trail help you get back every penny you spent for the trekking in Nepal. The trekking finally ends at beautiful Begnas Lake in the suburban area of Pokhara. The lake is so beautiful and pristine that too would help you forget all the pains and hardships endured along the trail.

Nepal Trekking Routes Treks & Expedition offers this trail trekked by Prince Charles himself at the best rates with quality service. Come and book with us for this royal trek in the Annapurna region.

Take breakfast before an early morning departure at 7am for Pokhara (200km), approximately 30 minutes of flight time. Drive to Bijayapur Khola to start the trek from there. We walk about an hour through the flat rice fields and across the river. If you are taking this trek in the summer the river may be hard to cross if it is flooded. After crossing the river the trail starts to ascend to Kalikasthan. Lunch will be served at the middle of the climb. After arriving at Kalikasthan camp will be set up at the top of the grassy verge (4 hrs).

After breakfast, we start walking through the villages of Thulokot to Mati Thana where we can enjoy a teashop lunch. We will walk on the forested ridge of the mountain with good views of Annapurna and Lamjung Himal. After ascending to Lipini we will arrive at Syanglung where we will set up camp (4 hrs).

Walk through Gurung Village with a small but lovely marketplace we will continue through rhododendron and Sal forests. Halfway through the walk there is a 400 meter descent and 600 meter ascent on an easy path before arriving at Chisopani – this is the best point to see the Himalayan Panorama. You will see Dhaulagiri (8167m) to the west of Annapurna. We set up camp a short distance from this village, near a ridge-top temple (4 hrs).
