Royal Treking is so named thanks to Britain’s Prince Charles who trekked here many years ago. Since then it has become popular because of the ease with which it can be completed in four days. However, there is no compromise on views. You will see the Annapurna range, Manaslu, and the Ganesh Himal. The trek takes you around the Begnas Tal, a beautiful lake with plentiful fish. Many birds come to the lake, including birds of prey.
