This short trek follows a shrub like path along the foothills of Annapurna , north of the Pokhara valley. The Royal Trek is so-named because Prince Charles and his 90 person entourage had surprised to the villagers by following this route in the early eighties. Starting from Kalikastan ridge, about 25 km from scenic Pokhara, the trek passes through beautiful Gurung villages and as you hike the terraced farmlands your eyes behold the magnificent Annapurna range, Machapuchhre [fishtail peak] and the Langtang mountains that give you a view of nature's beauty at its best. The trip finally ends at the scenic Begnas Lake which is about 30 km west of Pokhara City .

This trip is basically recommended for beginners or those who have very limited time but yet looking for an opportunity to squeeze in an experience of a trekking holiday in the Himalaya . 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 Chisapani at 1260 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
