This trek is called ‘Royal’ as the Prince Charles of British Royal Family along with his team joined this trek during early nineteen eighties. Since then, its popular as Royal Trek, perfect holiday choice for travelers regardless their age and fitness levels.
Royal Trek starts from Scenic lake city of Pokhara. We drive a short distance towards Bijaypur Army Camp to initiate trekking activity. We trek for couple of days through beautiful villages of Kalikasthan, Syaklung, Chisopani and finally trek back towards Pokhara. The trek gradually climbs through beautiful rhododendron forests. Along with great views of Pokhara valley we also get the chance to see Fishtail and other Himalayan ranges including Himchuli, Lamjung Himal, Manaslu and others.
