In 1981, Prince Charles and his 90 member entourage explored this place and after that it was named as Royal trek. Since the trekking area of Royal trek is less crowded when compared to other treks of the Annapurna region, trekkers can view the nature; explore the culture and lifestyle of the villagers more comfortably and more closely.
