The Royal Trek leading to Syaglung Hill presents an enchanting and moderately easy trekking pathway in the heart of Nepal's Annapurna region. Its designation as the "Royal Trek" harks back to the 1980s when it earned this name after being explored by Prince Charles of the United Kingdom and his retinue. This route unfolds a mesmerizing journey through the breathtaking landscapes encompassing the Annapurna and Manaslu mountain ranges. Along this expedition, trekkers are afforded the chance to fully immerse themselves in the rich cultural tapestry of Gurung and Magar villages. Typically spanning a duration of 5-6 days, this trek delivers a serene and culturally enriching experience in the less frequented domains of the Annapurna region.
