The Royal Trek

The Royal Trek

The Royal Trek (a soft trek that prepares you for the bigger things to come). Trekking in Nepal's middle hills, in the awesome backdrop of the Annapurna Range – 8 days.

Overview

Royal Trek is one of the trek which is perfect for a short trek. It is the trekking in the middle hills where you can see the Annapurna range in the background. This is called the Royal trek because in early eighties Prince Charles and his 90 person entourage has visited this route. This trek passes through gurung villages and as you reached to the farm land there you see the bols and magnificent Annapurna range, Machapuchhre and langtang mountain which is the bestest gift of nature by itself. now the trip will end by viewing the scenic begnas lake which is situated at Pokhara City about 30km west. 

We recommend this trek for those who have very short time but want to trek and explore the mountain trek. The entire trek is rather easy with occasional up and downhill hikes along the ridges and valleys without having to worry about altitude and acclimatization as the maximum ascent on this trek is Syaglung at 1730 meter. However, there is also an option to extend a cultural tour of Kathmandu, Pokhara & Chitwan by combining this trek to get the thrills of Nepal’s diverse ecological beauty.

    Kathmandu is the historical and cultural heart of Nepal and has been a popular destination for tourists ever since Nepal opened its doors to visitors. The city presents a wonderful mix of Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism and Western influence in the Valley. Patan and Bhaktapur, its two major neighboring cities bear immense historical, cultural and religious significances.

  • Day : 03 Fly or drive to Pokhara (optional) and then drive to Bijayapur and start trek to Kalikasthan

    From Kathmandu we take a half an hour scenic flight to Pokhara and drive to Bijaypur or we drive along the Prithivi Highway to Bijaypur for about 6 hrs. We will then make a short trek up to Kalikastan. We climb through the terraced cultivated fields of Kandane, following the steep stone steps, and eventually reaching a level path under the shade of evergreen trees. The path is steep but the background vista is incredible, vast stretches of flat farmland covers the valley. We will take a short rest in the shade of a huge Banyan tree, close to the scenic village of Archale. Now we head to Kalikastan. The view from Kalikastan is incredible, as the peaks of the Annapurna and the Machhapuchhre (fish tail) are clearly visible from here.

  • Day : 04 Trek to Patle

    We start on a level path and after a short while descend through the tranquil evergreen forest of Okhare to the village of Mastan Saurani. From here, the path ascends, winding up to the village of Sundergaon, and then goes straight down to reach the village of Patle.

  • Day : 05 Trek to Syaglung

    The route follows through a vast green forest on the right. On the way the path takes an undulating descent to the village of Ozangaun. We stop for a brief rest at the school at Ramche, and then steeply descend to the village of Lipyani, where we stop for lunch. Here there are few shops where we can buy some cold drinks or mineral water. After lunch, we start ascending the typical stone steps to Syaglung danda through an enchanting rhododendron forest. The trail is so peaceful that you can only hear the sound of your own footsteps. After a hard climb, we eventually enter the village of Syaglung, a typical Gurung settlement. From the village we can glimpse the entire Lumjung Himal – a breathtaking sight!

  • Day : 06 Conclude trek at Begnas Lake and drive to Pokhara

    Today we retrace our way back to Lipyani. The path is steep, descending on stone steps, with the Doban Khola on the right and contoured rice and wheat fields on the left. We come to a wooden bridge over Doban Khola, and then climb up the hill through a forest and arrive at the Lapsi danda. Here we take a short rest. Now the path becomes easier as we enter the village of Lapsidanda. We make a short descent to the motor road and follow the track to the village of Begnas, where we stop for lunch in an open field.
