Royal Trek

Royal Trek in the Annapurna region's hills and local villages of Nepal

Trip Overview

Royal Trek Overview

Royal Trek is an easy trek, even when it takes you to the midst of the low altitudes and the high altitude Annapurna Ranges. As you follow the trekking trail that is not much crowded, you have your desire met; your desire for walking alone in one of the world’s loneliest trails. The trail also shows you the amazing view of the mountains that the Annapurna Region is famous for. The trail shows you all the hidden gems of the region, just like an open book that enlightens your mind that tells you what the thing called knowledge is all about. The knowledge is also about exceptional landscapes; the knowledge is also about a unique culture; the knowledge is also about the trekking region that has been well-preserved for the present and the future generation. The present generation finds every bit of the Royal Trek tolerable, comfortable, and incredible. Along with these, Travel Max Guide continues to provide satisfaction until you finish your Royal Trek. Your Royal Trek is completed when you see the panoramic view of the Annapurna Ranges.

These ranges are famous all over the world. The world’s trekkers know about these ranges. They tell you a lot about Annapurna I (8091 m), Annapurna II, Annapurna III, and Annapurna South. They will also tell you about other mountains, such as Fishtail, Langtang, Dhaulagiri (8167 m), Nilgiri, and Lamjung. These are the mountains that have traced on their minds and will do the same to you. See the world’s ultimate mountains through the Royal Trek that has already been done by The Prince Charles of the UK and Mick Zaggar of The Rolling Stones.

Look at these mountains and try to stop your mind from thinking how remote a trek can be. The remote trek is also difficult; this is your general thinking. But after you hear coincidentally or accidentally from others, it’s your turn to do the Royal Trek in which the people have walked easy trekking trail.

Accommodation

In Kathmandu and Pokhara, you are going to stay at the 3-star category hotel (Value). During trekking, you will spend your night in a tea house. The tea house is a lodge or a guest house. The tea house is an old name for a lodge because trekkers and climbers gave this name 40 years ago. After all, it used to sell only tea then. Now they also sell meals as well as provide bedrooms for the trekkers and climbers. The old name tea house is still used by the trekking agencies in Nepal. Hence, the name tea house trek. Tea house differs from village to village where you are going to spend your night. Some have attached bathrooms as well as running a hot water facility, while others have only basic facilities, that is, you have to share a toilet and a bathroom with others. This is so because they are located in a high altitude and the remotest area. Some provide dormitory-style accommodation, but they also provide you a bed, a pillow, a blanket, and a bedsheet still, you must have your sleeping bag.

Swayambhunath (Monkey Temple)

Be well prepared in advance because this stupa is located at quite an altitude and is more than 2,000 years old. This is the most important of all the Buddhist Stupas in Nepal and has a fascinating face of Lord Buddha on every side, and its base has the stonework of 5 Dhyani Buddhas – Vairocana, Ratnasambhava, Amitabha, Amoghasiddhi, and Aksobhya, and each of these represents the wisdom of Lord Buddha.

Bouddhanath 

Bouddhanath is also a stupa. It is one of the holiest pilgrimages of the Buddhists. It has a white doom just like Swayambhunath, whatever the myth is, it contains the bones of Kasyapa Buddha (Buddha incarnation), while others say it contains the bone of Lord Buddha.

First step in the Everest Base Camp

I was in Nepal for the Everest Base Camp Trek. Outstanding sceneries and good hospitality. On the way to the base camp, I got an opportunity to visit Bthe uddhist monastery as well as got some information about Buddhism. That was great. Our guide and porter were awesome. Very kind and helpful. Thank you, TMG.

Annapurna Circuit Trek

Trekking with Travel Max Guide was an amazing experience. My selection of a trip and the company were excellent and of a right decision. In each moment of my walk, I came across adventure and discovered something new. I remember my first step on the Everest Base Camp. The view was spectacular. Passing through the Sherpa communities and staying in Namche Bazaar is unforgettable. I miss the trip very much. Anyway, thank you so much for your service while I was in Nepal. See you next time for the Annapurna Circuit Trek.

Everest trekking in Nepal

Originally from the United State of America from the city of Los Angeles where life is busy and rush. I made a trip with TMG. It’s a new experience than I excepted. I found Nepalese people really welcoming. They really love tourists. While trekking in the Everest region, I got time to spend with nature, gained plenty of ideas of culture and tradition from the Himalayas. The trip was totally mind-blowing. TMG has a good team spirit and is dedicated to serving guest and trekkers.
