Royal Trek is one of the best introductory treks in the Annapurna region of Nepal. It is an easy and short trek. The walking trail does not ascend to high elevation; it passes through the rice terraced fields, bamboo forests and steams on the way. Each night you will stay at teahouse/ lodges run by the local people. Meals are also served at teahouse/ lodges at the affordable cost. The name of the trek ‘Royal trek’ has been dubbed just because Prince Charles of Wales walked through this small hill in early eighties along with his entourage of ninety fellow trekkers. Since then, this trek has become so popular and many trekkers choose Royal Trek in their wish list.
This trek is much suitable recommended for family with younger children, newly-wedded couples, nature lovers and for those who are visiting Nepal for the first time for trekking. While on trek ,you will enjoy spectacular views of Mount Annapurna, Mount Dhaulagiri, Mount Manaslu and many other Himalayan peaks. The beautiful mountain scenery, the traditional lifestyles and unique culture of Gurung, one of the ethnic groups of Nepal and easy accessibility to this area make Royal Trek one of the best.
This trekking is not recommended for the raining season ( July to mid-September). October and November are the best months to do Royal Trek in Nepal as the monsoon has stopped, the sky is becoming clearer, the climate is getting colder and the Mountain views are eye-catching. When we compare to other treks in the Annapurna region, Royal trekking route is less touristy.
The Royal trekking trail after the earthquake of April 25, 2015 is in good shape. Most the tea houses are in operation and bookings for the upcoming season is open now. Annapurna region did not experience any damage during the disaster.
