Royal trekking over view-Annapurna region
Royal trekking is walking along the peaceful ranges with terraced hills, colorful flora and fauna, soaring high like an eagle seeing the majestic view of the Annapurna. One can feel higher than the royalty, discovering the natural height of being alive.
It’s an excellent trek to do as it doesn’t entail any particular long walking days and there’s always plenty to see. However, there are no village inn accommodations along the route, so people do this trek with guided trekking groups.
Are you are looking for an opportunity to experience an adventurous holiday in Nepal? Trek to the Himalayas in a short period of time in the easiest way possible! Go out for Royal trek!
Royal Trek is one of the easiest treks in the Annapurna region of Nepal suitable for everyone; even for the beginners and elderly people. It is named after Prince Charles, who walked through this route in the 1980s. The trail leads you through an easy route with an occasional uphill and downhill hike that follows ridges and valleys. As you walk through the rhododendron forests, you will be blessed with the beautiful Himalayan vistas. The panoramic view of Pokhara valley, northern Annapurna range, and Mt. Fishtail is simply awe-inspiring. On your way, you will pass through various ethnic villages rich in diverse culture. It is an awesome opportunity to interact with locals and get some insights into their culture, customs, traditions, and lifestyles. And the best part, you don’t have to worry about altitude sickness at all.
Royal trek is a flavorful yet challenging experience. After a guided sightseeing tour to listed world heritage sites in Kathmandu, we head to Pokhara with a scenic drive along Trishuli river. After a 25 km drive from Pokhara, we reach Kalikastan- the starting point of our trek. We follow a path along the foothills of Annapurna to beautiful Gurung hamlets. As we hike up the terraced farmlands, we will be blessed with the magnificence of Annapurna range, Mt. Fishtail and Langtang. After this invigorating experience, we finally conclude our trek at the scenic Begnas Lake.

Dammaru Niraula Trekking Guide Trip Leader I have had an association with Dammaru over the last three years. My first trek with Dammaru was to the Solu Khumbu region where he tailored a trek to suit our request to climb some remote passes and stay off the main tourist routes where possible. His knowledge of the area was very impressive and his attention to our safety was always his major concern. The second trek I did with Dammaru two years…
Dear Dammaru I have been trekking to Ghorepani poon hill on Jan 07 for 6 days with Mr. Dammaru. Poonhill is so beautiful, so all I can do is just taking pictures on poon hill. If you were planning to trek in Nepal, I…
I was a member of a group of nine friends from Northamptonshire in 204 from the UK, on a trek of the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal. Apart from one member, we were all approaching or over the age of 60 and were all well aware of the difficulties we could encounter at Thorong La which sits at an altitude of 5,416 meters (17,769…
My husband and I embarked on a trip to Nepal in October 2006. We were hoping to avoid the large tour groups and were referred to Himalayan Holidays based in Kathmandu as a provider of customized tours. We had looked on the net to determine the tour we wanted to undertake and spoke to many people and eventually decided 6-day on Ghorepani Poon…
Dammaru Niraula was our guide and confidant for our recent visit to Nepal. We went on a humanitarian visit to build a hothouse in the village of Phortse in the Khumbu region of Nepal but also included some trekking on a personal level before and after our project. Dammaru was a vital link in getting the project off the ground and then as a support person in Nepal before, during and after. He completed the following tasks with the utmost professionalism and patience. Arranged transfer of a large number of funds from Australian bank account to Nepalese bank account. Communications with the village before we arrived to ensure the walls were built. Organized our itinerary and necessary bookings for the trekking part of our journey for 8 adults. Once we arrived in Nepal he then assisted us in purchasing all the gear we needed for the finishing of the hothouse. e.g. Polycarbonate roof sheeting and the many other bits of hardware necessary. Transport of the roofing etc to Phortse village via helicopter, plane, yak, and porter. As well as being a part of the project Dammaru also was our trekking guide for the duration of our trip of 5 weeks. He organized everything for us from the hotel, in Kathmandu and everything in between our trek to base camp. He is honest, reliable and always puts the customer first. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dammaru to anyone who is considering a trip to Nepal.
My husband and I embarked on a trip to Nepal in October 2006. We were hoping to avoid the large tour groups and were referred to Himalayan Holidays based in Kathmandu as a provider of customized tours. We had looked on the net to determine the tour we wanted to undertake and spoke to many people and eventually decided 6-day on Ghorepani Poon Hill trek. We live in a plain and therefore training for the trek was a challenge in itself. We spent our weekends climbing up and down a 700metre high hill that was regarded as sufficiently steep for our training needs. However, we were unsure of what to expect in Nepal and were concerned about our levels of fitness for the trek that we had in mind. We were introduced to our guide, Dammaru at the hotel we were staying in Kathmandu and our anxieties were quickly alleviated. This diminutive gentleman exuded confidence and assured us that he was able to accommodate our individual fitness levels and ensure that our time in his country was hassle free. And indeed he did! Without it being particularly noticeable, Dammaru controlled the tempo of our daily treks in order that the enjoyment factor always exceeded any physical discomfort. His relationship with the locals was both real & genuine which meant we never felt like intruders or uncomfortable in their presence. Dammaru's keen negotiation skills with the local tea house proprietors' meant the delay between arriving & unwinding from the challenges of our daily treks was minimal with the accommodation always being appropriate to our needs. His professionalism was faultless. He provided us with a wealth of information on all aspects of the history, culture, flora, and fauna of this remarkable country. Not only was he a fantastic guide, but his cheeky grin and sense of humor ensured Dammaru to be a fantastic traveling companion. Our dealings with Dammaru exceeded all expectations and we hope to make a return visit to this stunningly beautiful country.
