The Royal Trek is also known as Annapurna Royal Trekking. The royal trek is one of the shortest treks that follow a shrub-like path along the foothills of Annapurna, north of the Pokhara valley. Keen Adventures Treks and Expedition has been providing this service for years with a 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 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 the Himalayan Mountains seem close enough to touch are the highlights of this trip. The entire trail will take you to encounter Gurkha people mainly those who are living in mid-hill areas of Nepal. Annapurna Royal Trekking trek overall covers a very normal elevation of about 1500m but offers overwhelming panoramic views of snow-covered mountain peaks. For those who have different choices and seeking a real natural experience with 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 allows 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 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.
