1. How much does the Royal Trek cost?

One of the more affordable treks in Nepal is the Royal Trek, which typically ranges in price from US$450 to US$950. However, when you factor in flights to Kathmandu and other expenses, this becomes much higher.

2. The Royal Trek requires permits, right?

Permits are necessary for the Royal Trek, yes. The TIMS Trekking Permit and the Annapurna Conservation Permit are both required.

3. What time of year is ideal for the Royal Trek?

The optimum times to undertake the Royal walk are from March to May and from mid-September to mid-December, when the days are warm and the nights are bitterly cold. Winter (December to February) is an option, but it’s obviously colder and there’s a chance that snow will obstruct the paths. On the other side, the routes are less busy. Between May and September, it can get very hot throughout the day and there is a chance of monsoon rain.

4. Is the Royal Trek at risk for altitude sickness?

The Royal Trek reaches elevations of 1700 meters despite being one of the lower altitude climbs. Therefore, it’s crucial to have a fundamental grasp of the dangers of high-altitude trekking as well as how your body adjusts to the experience.

5. Just how challenging is the Royal Trek?

The Royal Trek is not too difficult. This Nepal trip is suggested for first-timers with limited time because only a minimal level of fitness is needed and there is no need for technical climbing experience. We’ll be walking on village pathways where the ground is smooth. There are some lengthy parts that climb and descend, so endurance is needed.
Most trekkers, including young children and the elderly, take five days. When rivers are flooded in the summer, it can be more difficult to cross them. Each day, there will be five to six hours of walking. To increase strength and stability, it is advised that anyone embarking on this walk engage in regular exercise, such as running, for a few weeks beforehand.

6. Which equipment will I need for the Royal Trek?

A variety of necessary pieces of trekking apparel and gear are needed for both the Royal Trek and regular trekking in the Annapurna region. Although brief, the Royal Trek exposes you to a variety of altitudes where night and day temperatures differ significantly.
Many pieces of gear can be leased or purchased in Pokhara or Kathmandu, but we advise taking the most crucial items with you.

7. For the Royal Trek, what kind of travel insurance do I need?

For the Royal Trek, you do indeed require travel insurance. In Nepal, having travel insurance is essential. You will most definitely want enough trekking insurance that can cover the price of an air ambulance and treatment if an accident or event should occur that necessitates rapid medical aid and evacuation.
Make sure you have travel insurance that protects you from any dangers associated with your trip, including disruptions, aircraft delays, lost, stolen, damaged, or delayed baggage, and tour operators’ negligence.
