ACTIVITY PER DAY
Royal Trekking is an easy and short trek that offers good mountain views. It got its name when after Prince Charles of the UK and his entourage of 90 guests trekked through this area in the 1980s. The route is not frequented by many trekkers. It is, however, a lovely walk and not complicated with some beautiful views of the Annapurna range in the background.
This six-day trek commences from Pokhara, the valley of lakes offering panoramic views of the Annapurna massif and the Manaslu Himal. This is the best trek for those who want to experience village life and striking mountain views in a relatively short period of time
