The Royal Trek is also known as Annapurna Royal Trekking. The royal trek is one of the shortest treks that follow a shrub like a path along the foothills of Annapurna, north of the Pokhara valley. Himalayan Recreation Treks and Expedition has been providing this service since years with the team of professionals. Annapurna Royal Trekking is so-named because Prince Charles and his 90 person entourage had explored this route in the early eighties. Also, this Annapurna Royal Trek provides the opportunities for meaningful cultural experiences with the diverse mix of peoples and cultures that inhabit this region.

Annapurna royal trekking is the best trek for those who want to experience village life and outstanding mountain views in a quite short period of time. The trail on this trek passes through rice fields, forested ridge tops, lakes, and temples. Lush green forests, glacial lakes, and Himalayan Mountains seems close enough to touch are the highlights of this trip. The entire trail will take you to encounter with Gurkha people mainly those who are living in mid-hill areas of Nepal. Annapurna royal trekking trek overall covers very normal elevation about 1500m but offers overwhelming panoramic views of snow covered mountain peaks. Those who have different choice and seeking for the real natural experience about Himalayan views this Annapurna Royal Trekking is highly recommended for a hiking tour. During the Annapurna royal trekking, we are able to enjoy stunning views of the eloquently built hillside rice terraces, the magnificent Annapurna range, Machapuchhre (fishtail) and the Langtang Mountain views.

This Annapurna Royal trekking presents a true picture of uniqueness and allowing us an opportunity to capture the traditional lifestyles of the tribes whose ancient religious practices and traditions have remained unchanged for centuries. If you like physical activity in the outdoors, the “Annapurna Royal Trekking” can be a flavorful, challenging experience. Autumn (mid-Sept to mid-Dec) and spring (March to May) are the best seasons for the Annapurna Royal Trek.

Heavenly Himalayas and Everest base camp Trek
Trip Date: 04/10/2016

That was my dream to be there once in my life. Everest base camp trek was my dream. But.. last month I was there. it was an unforgettable experience and beautiful achievement of my life. Amazing views of a mountain just in front of my eyes, beautiful views of Khumbu icefall, glacier and glacial lake. Wow ! Heaven on earth.
While I reached in Kalapatthar 5,555 m, I thought I was in the top of the world. I found myself surrounding the beautiful Himalayas such as Mt. Everest, Pumori, Nuptse, Lhotse and so on. By the stunning views of the Himalayas and Himalayan range, I felt nervous and neither I am able to speak nor express my happiness.
Everest base camp trek is adventurous. there is a lot of difficulties. it is also one of the dangerous trekking in the world. I want to recommend all of you to choose good trekking partner. Your smart choice will make your travel successful. I found #Himalayan Recreation is a good one and that was my perfect choice.
I can't forget one kind, helpful and smart person in my lifetime. He is Bharat, my friend, my guide. He made my trekking more beautiful than my expectation.

Thank you so much, Bharat and Team Himalayan recreation.

Great company, Wonderful Everest base camp
