Royal Trek - 9 Days

According to the Prince of Wales, Royal Trek is the best trek. This trek became more popular when Mick Jagger, the vocalist of the Rolling Stones, did it. Royal Trek is also easy and short; therefore, Ace Holidays recommends this even to the absolute beginners.

At the beginning of Royal Trek, you follow a gradual ascent, pass through the villages of the Gurung and Magar people, head off to Kalikasthan village and see the beautiful features of mountains, such as Manaslu, Annapurna, and Dhaulagiri. Walking through the colorful forest of rhododendrons can be your lifetime experience of this trek.

Beautiful terraced fields of rice, millet, maize and magnificent sparkled waterfalls are also the highlights of Royal Trek. What makes this trek different from other treks of Annapurna Region is it’s less crowded. The ending point of Royal Trek is Pokhara, the city of lakes, which has interesting places like Fewa Lake, Devi’s Water Fall, museums, Tibetan refugee settlement, and Gupteshower Mahadev cave. It is the longest cave of South Asia. Pokhara is also known as the city of lakes. Rupa Lake is the third largest lake of Nepal which is the home to 36 species of water birds, while Begnas lake is the second largest lake of Pokhara, where you see the people enjoying boating and canoeing.

Taking this into consideration, as well as the best interests of your group. Ace Holidays will do everything to minimize the affects, but Ace Holiday will not shoulder the responsibility, arising from changes or delays.

Important Note: The local porters at Tribhuwan International Airport in Kathmandu, may ask tip/money to you. BUT PLEASE DO NOT GIVE ANY MONEY TO THEM, not even to the person, who is holding Ace Holidays' sign board. There will be many local boys wanting to help with your luggage for a fee. Begging is one of the harsh realities of this country, Ace Holidays believes that it should not be encouraged.

During the camping we provide the best possible service with comfortable two person tents and good mattresses. A kitchen, dining, toilet tents, chairs with tables are also provided.

There are whole lot of good restaurants in Kathmandu and Pokhara where you can find any many delight of your choice. During your stay in Kathmandu and Pokhara, meals are not included.

If you have any special dietary requirements, please advise us in advance so that we can make the necessary arrangements.

A Typical Day on the Trail

We will have a hearty breakfast between 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. before setting off. At the right moment, we pack our bags and then assemble in the dining hall before setting off on the day's trek. After approximately 2-3 hours of trekking, we take a break for lunch somewhere in the trail. After a good lunch, we typically spend around 2-3 hours or even more on the trail before reaching our stopping point. Throughout the day, we will take frequent breaks and take time to admire the fascinating mountains views. We further take plenty of pictures of ourselves backed up by the incredible panoramic mountains, rivers, landscapes, prayer flags, temples, shrines, cairns, and monasteries. Once we arrive at our camping site, we take a brief rest, and have a light snack with tea or coffee. If we are so inclined to natural beauty, we may take a short walk through the village and surrounding neighborhoods. After checking into our tents, we have time to read or chat with fellow trekkers or with our crew members. Enjoying a warm dinner in a cozy dining tent, your trek leader briefs you on the next day's itinerary. We give breakfast order which allows our guide to have everything ready for us for the next morning. Extra time can be spent on reading and on playing cards. Our Sherpas love to teach various Nepali card games, as well as learn new Western games. Finally, it is off to bed before starting all over again for tomorrow's trek.

The Group Size

Our minimum group size for this trip is two people to maximum 14 people, the average number is normally 8 people. We provide 1 lead guide, 1 assistant guide (if the group size is 6 or more), we assign required porters and kitchen staffs for each group.

Acclimitazation

All Ace Holidays' itineraries are planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up at higher altitudes too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to result in death. The higher the altitude, the less the oxygen in the air. For example, at an altitude above of 5000 m, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Therefore, our body needs many days to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. Our itineraries generally allow sufficient time to acclimatize. So, for a safe trek, it is absolutely essential to allow sufficient time for acclimatization. Sensible planning is, therefore, required to minimize the risk of AMS. We advise trekkers with known heart, lungs or blood diseases to consult their doctor before trekking. Mild headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorders are the symptoms of AMS. Check out our “High Altitude Sickness Page (link)”. Our itineraries are designed to try to prevent AMS as much as possible. But it is important to remember that some visitors are more vulnerable than others.

Guides and Staffs Arrangements

The most significant thing that makes our trips successful, enjoyable and memorable is the skilled, experienced, courteous and helpful trek leader and the crew members with an ability of operating trek in the mountain smoothly. The best and most professional local leaders will lead your trek. All of Ace Holidays' leaders are carefully selected on the basis of their appropriate experience, leadership skills and personal aptitude. With an objective of sustaining local communities, we only employs local staff who have adequate knowledge about culture, ecosystem, flora, fauna, geography, and history of their local regions. The trek, tour, biking and expedition leaders have undergone the following trainings:

-Intensive Wilderness First Aid
-Trekking Guide Training
-Eco Trekking Workshop and Adventure Meet
-English Language
-Conservation and Biodiversity
-Rock climbing, Ice Climbing and Mountaineering (for expedition leaders)

Best Seasons

Autumn (September to December) and Spring (January to June) are the best seasons for Royal Trek. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. Trekking in Summer or Monsoon (July to Aug) will be affected by rain, but Summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist. This is low altitude trek and can be done during the winter season as well.

Change on the Itinerary

Your safety is of paramount concern when you travel with Ace Holidays. Please note that your leader has the authority to amend or cancel any part of the itinerary if it is deemed necessary due to safety concerns. Since this adventure entails travelling in remote mountainous regions, we cannot guarantee that we will not deviate from it. Weather conditions, health condition of a group member, unexpected natural disasters, etc., can all contribute to changes in the itinerary. The leader will try to ensure that the trip runs, according to your plan, but please be prepared to be flexible if required.

Giving to the Local Community

Ace Holidays works closely with local community and is one of the main supporters of Sambhav Nepal, a non-political and non-profit social organization. We contribute our support to the remote villages of Gorkha and to other parts of Nepal through donation, sponsorship program and partnership in various projects.

Donation

We donate a percentage of our business profit to the foundation on a yearly basis, and we also support the ongoing maintenance cost of the local schools, community-based schools in Gorkha region

Sponsorship

One of the major activities of the Sambhav Nepal is the children sponsorship program, which is conducted with full collaboration with Ace Holidays.

Partnership for Volunteering Program

Equipment and Packing List

In a supported trek, heavy items are carried by porters and personal belongings that you may need for the day like money, water bottle, rain gear, camera, sun cream and toilet paper etc. should be carried by yourself. So, you are briefed to pack items in two different bags before the trek.
