Annapurna region of Nepal is probably the best place for the diversified traveling. From the long Annapurna Circuit Trek to the moderate yet adventurous Annapurna Base Camp Trek and shorter treks like Sarangkot Hiking including Australian Camp there are plenty of trails for the trekking. Bharal Adventure introduces the Annapurna Royal Trek which comprises about three days of walking for the trekkers to witness the amazing villages of British Gurkha soldiers’ family.

Annapurna Royal Trek route got its name as royal because of the glorious visit of Prince Charles of the Great Britain. Prince Charles with the intention to meet the families of the Gurkha Soldiers once trekked this trail and after that, it is named as such. The journey begins with the amazing sightseeing of the Pokhara Valley. From the mystical caves to the mysterious waterfalls and marvelous Paragliding the activities that you can do in Pokhara is at abundance. Boating, shopping, and views of the Himalayas are common in the city. The place is more inclined towards nature even if you can find the modern facilities and structures. The bus drive will take you to the Kalikasthan from where the three days trekking starts. The village of Lippin and Chisapani will be covered during the trail. The most visual highlight of the trek is the scene of the Machhapuchhre, Annapurna, and Lamjung Himal. The eyes resemblance of the Rupa Lake and Begnas Lake is equally attractive. The green lush forests and the ridges make your trekking into the wild feeling. The conversations with the locals too will be fruitful as most of the locals have their family members in the prestigious British Gurkha Army. The trekking ends with the boating in Begnas from where you will again return back to Pokhara.

Book the Annapurna Royal Trek package with us and travel the trail once walked by the great Prince Charles. Bharal Adventure takes great privileges to introduce this package which includes majestic sightseeing of the Kathmandu Valley and Pokhara Valley unlike other trekking agencies of Nepal.

I came to know Bharal Adventure (BA) by chance with my previous trekking to Everest Base Camp Short Trek at the end of last year and This was my second time with Sujan (Founder of BA) for organising such a wonderful trip to Everest base camp short with my friends and it was truly amazing, enjoyable trip, it leaves us a profound experience with spectacular view of some highest peak in the Himalayan range and beauty of vast wildness.

Trekking in Himalayan range can be strenuous, but with our guide, Nirajan help us every step of the way in which make the trip a complete hassle free, we are very thankful for his service and would recommend to anyone coming to Nepal for Trekking.

Once again, thank you for all to make our trekking trip an unforgettable event to us And we are definitely coming back to Nepal again.
