Also best for the first-time trekkers with easier walking conditions and good facilities along the way.  Just a week long trek is a fine opportunity to get into Nepalese countryside and authentic culture of ethnic people. Best to see some of the most breathtaking scenery in the Annapurna Royal Trek.

Rest assured, by compromising on the time you are not compromising on views. The royal trek allows you some spectacular vantage points of the majestic Annapurna Mountains, and also includes a pass along Begnas Tal, a beautiful lake that attracts an abundance of birdlife, including eagles and other birds of prey that come to fish at this lake. The route made famous and aptly named the Annapurna Royal Trek when the Prince Charles of Britain trek in the same route before marriage in 1981. Walking through the traditional settlements set among the terraced fields and befriending with the local people will be a marvellous experience. This four days trek commences from Pokhara, the valley of lakes offering panoramic views of the Annapurna massif as also of the Manaslu Himal.

Annapurna Royal Trek is a short and easy trek in Annapurna so that even the beginners can experience this trek. No prior experience of hiking or trekking  is needed for this trek.
