About Annapurna Royal Trek

Royal Trek derived its name in the early eighties when Prince Charles of Britain escorted by ninety Royal officials experienced this trekking trail. Due to this reason, it got its name—Royal Trek.

The Annapurna Royal trek is one of the shortest and easiest treks of Nepal that shows you the beauty of the Annapurna area. The trail gives a glimpse of Nepalese society and its ethnic indigenous group. Their unique culture and lifestyle are fascinating.

The trail passes through Gurung villages and goes across terraced fields viewing snow-capped peaks above. Gurung is regarded as a brave person in the world. Their bravery came to attention during Second World War while fighting in support of the United Kingdom. Due to this reason, British Government still believes in its Gorkha Regiment. Many Gurungs are honored by Victoria Cross (VC) so far.

Probably, due to this reason, Prince Charles explored this area. Besides, the unique culture of Gurung people and their lifestyle is appealing for many people across the world.

Furthermore, the appealing peaks of Annapurna Range, Mt. Machapuchhre [Fishtail], and Langtang Himalayas add joy to the trek. It is a single destination from where one can enjoy the beauty of snow-capped peaks just from 1,730m altitude.
