Annapurna Royal Trek

09 days


The Annapurna Royal Trek is one of the newer treks in the region and is considered easy to moderate.  It is named royal as Prince Charles walked this trekking route in 1980.  This is a camping trek, for the most part, with the only teahouse accommodation being in Begnas Tal.  It is one of the easier and most beautiful routes in Nepal with awesome views of the Annapurna peaks. The main attractions of royal trek are beautiful lakes, caves, and forest with and views of giant mountain ranges. This trek is appropriate for beginner trekkers with little time but is a bit more expensive than tea house trekking because of the camping gear and support team needed.
