Annapurna Royal Trek
Follow the trekking path of Prince Charles in Annapurna Region
Annapurna Royal Trek in the Annapurna region of Nepal got its name “Royal” because of Prince Charles. He visited and trekked the same trail in the early ’80s. Since then, the locals and trekking organizers have offered this part of the Annapurna region trekking as Royal Trek.
This relatively easy trekking activity in Nepal spans just below nine days. The trekking on the trail starts from Kalikasthan, which is only about one hour of bus drive from Pokhara. The trekkers’ magnificent views for the entire trekking period and the chance to get familiarized with the Gurung people are the first bonus. Gurung Community people will welcome you to Sikles Village, where most British Gurkha soldiers are.
This Annapurna Royal Trekking trail passes by the Gurung community settlements and paddy fields. The scenic views of the Fishtail, Annapurna, Langtang mountain ranges and surrounding hills would be the mesmerizing tale of your journey. Annapurna Royal Trek’s final destination is Begnas Lake in Pokhara, passing through the villages like Sailung and Chisapani. The Annapurna Royal trek is famous for those with less vacation and weak physical health.
Trekking provides an excellent platform for those willing to witness the Himalayan ranges. As well as the ethnic culture of the Annapurna region trek in a short time. Therefore, this is the most popular and unique trek in Nepal experience.
Come and trek the trail walked by Prince Charles of Great Britain. And be the king or queen with our impeccable hospitality and personal service. After all, Peregrine Treks offers Royal Trek at the most competitive price possible in Nepal trekking & tour organizing companies.
