Royal Trekking

About Royal Trekking

Royal Trekking Royal Trek is easy, short and enjoyable trekking in the Pokhara region offers good mountain views, including Machhapuchhare (fishtail mountain in English) and Annapurna Ranges without long trekking days or long steep ascents. Royal trek is ideal for those who have never tried trekking before and is also suitable for families. Royal Trek is most suitable for both elder trekkers and slow walking trekkers

The royal trek follows a shrub like path along the foothills of Annapurna, north of the Pokhara valley. The Royal Trek is so-named because Prince Charles and his 90 person entourage had explored this route in the early eighties. Starting from Kalikastan ridge, about 25 km from scenic Pokhara, the trek passes through beautiful Gurung hamlets where little kids tuck at your sleeves for a snapshot or a toffee and as you hike the terraced farmlands your eyes behold the magnificent Annapurna range, Machapuchhre [fishtail peak] and the Lang tang mountains that give you a view of nature’s beauty at its best. Royal trek finally ends at the scenic Begnas Lake which is about 30 km west of Pokhara City.

Royal trekking is basically recommended for beginners or those who have very limited time but yet looking for an opportunity to squeeze in an experience of a trekking holiday in the Himalaya. The entire trek is rather easy with occasional up and downhill hikes along the ridges and valleys without having to worry about altitude and acclimatization as the maximum ascent on this trek is Chisapani at 2200 meter.

Trip Reviews

We just spent two weeks in Nepal and, thanks to the great commitment and organization abilities of Pasang, we had a great experience and all was impeccable and went smoothly.

When we decided to spend our holiday in Nepal, we contacted many reputable travel agents. Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expedition were the first to give us a reply and Pasang was able to draw a tailor-made, detailed and exciting itinerary! He tried to satisfy all our expectations and needs and, thanks to his vast knowledge of the country, he was able to suggest us less crowded itineraries where we really enjoyed to spend our time.

A special thanks goes also to our fabulous guide, Sumba Sherpa, who was extremely patient, kind, helpful and efficient during our trek. His English is excellent and he is very knowledgeable on any issue related to the country. It was a real pleasure having him among us and his serious and professional attitude and continuous assistance really impressed us.
