This short and reasonably flat walk through the foothills of the Annapurna region (Western Nepal, Pokhara environment) allows all aspects of a camping trip. The Royal Trek owes its title to Charles, the Prince of Wales, who walked this route with a number of Sherpas and 1500 Ghurka soldiers in December 1980. Due to the low altitude, the Royal Trek can even be done in winter.

By bus we drive from Kathmandu to Bijaypur Khola, a river northeast of Pokhara. The Royal Trek makes a loop over a ridge and goes along the lakes of Dipang, Begnas and Rupa. We walk through rice fields, forests, Hindu and Buddhist villages, and cross a low pass where we can enjoy beautiful sunrises and sunsets with a magnificent view of the Annapurna (8091 m), Machhapuchhare (Fish Tail, 6993 m), Dhaulagiri (8167 m) and Lamjung Himal. After one night in Pokhara we fly back to Kathmandu.

Day 1: This trip begins with a bus ride to the starting point of the hike near Bijaypur Khola. Once on the road, the path narrows itself swiftly and steadily climbs to the village of Danda Kandhani. From there the path undulates, the snowy peaks are to the left of us behind the foot hills. After a gradual descent, suddenly from behind the terraces the Machapuchare appears, and in the distance, the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna's appear on the other side. After the village of Kalika and steeper climbing, we arrive at our first camp place. Beautiful views of the Himalayas are the rewards of this first day.
Day 2: Today we start with a descent to the village Shaure Bazaar. A short but steep climb brings us then to a slightly smoother path. En route we pass the photogenic village Matani, a magnificent setting, together with the views of the striking peak of the Machapuchare. After a short climb we have our lunch. This break is followed by a short climb to the top of the ridge. We follow the ridge for two hours leading us to the village Lippyani where we camp.
Day 3: A long day today, but quite worthwhile. From our camp, the road leads along endless terraces, a beautiful setting for the white peaks of the Himalayas in the distance. A steep descent brings us to the village of Shaka Bhanjyang. Then there is a climb of three quarters through a shady forest. Once we cross the pass the cook prepares us our lunch. The afternoon starts with an easy climb. Beyond Chisapani village, near a Buddhist gompa, we set up camp.
Day 4: After a descent we follow the ridge, followed by another descent of half an hour. We continue our journey to the bottom of the valley. The following climb brings us to the village Begnas and back into a more populated area. Another short climb with a lake on each side, followed by a descent on an increasingly broad path brings us to Sisuwa.  The bus will be waiting there to take us to Pokhara, where we stay in a hotel.
Day 5: Early in the morning, we are picked up at the hotel for our flight back to Kathmandu. With some luck and good weather we are treated to a beautiful overview of the Himalayas.
