About Royal Trek
Royal Trek is a relatively quick an easy journey through the tranquil foothills and offers astonishing mountain panoramas. The whole Royal Trekcan be completed in under a week and is designed for people with less time in their travel, but still wanting something special for a taste of hiking in the Himalaya. The name of this trek was coined after Prince Charles of Britain trekked here in the 1980s. The original itinerary was made with him in mind. It is a moderately relaxed, leisurely trek that travels through the fertile hills north of Pokhara. The trek is filled with the beauty of village scenery and visits ridge top viewpoints with marvelous panoramas of the mountains.
Visitors can enjoy close views of the majesticAnnapurnas and Machhpuchhre (aka, Fishtail Peak). The time on the trails is not strenuous. Therefore, trekkers have a chance to explore peaceful villages and their surrounding terraced fields along with thrilling mountain views.
The Royal Trek is easily accessed but at the same time, it does not receive many trekkers. Therefore, it is a magnificent chance to get off the beaten paths and get to know the local communities.
The Royal Trek journey begins with a short and scenic drive from Pokhara before the hiking starts with a climb through the lush hills between Begnas Lake and Rupa Lake and continuing through rural farmland and lush jungles.
Along the trails of the Royal Trek there are few facilities and therefore, we make it a camping trek. High Camp Adventure will arrange a crew of porters to transport provisions and gear, including food and a dining tent, tables, chairs, a toilet tent, and personal sleeping tents. Our skilled chef will provide the day’s meals and in the evening we will enjoy a magnificent camp under the stars, surrounded by the Himalaya and jaw-dropping surroundings while we enjoy a supper and a warm drink.
The Royal Trek offers cultural interaction and insights that cannot be found on the busier and more commercialized routes. This trek involves camping in stunning locations and sunset and sunrise views of the Himalaya will be spectacular and unforgettable!
Please Note: The Royal Trek has set departure dates from both Pokhara and Kathmandu. This trek can be personalized to accommodate your specific wishes and timetable. We can arrange a combination of this Royal Trek with the iconic Annapurna Circuit Trek as well as the Annapurna Base Camp Trek and other inviting options in the area.
