This package gained its name because Prince Charles trekked here. It is an easy short trek offering a good mountain views, ridge walking, forests, rice fields & different village types. The second part of the itinerary takes in Royal Chitwan National Park - home to 56 species of mammals including the one horned rhinoceros, Bengal Tiger, leopard, sloth bear, wild elephant, striped hyena, Gangetic dolphin and wild bison. There are an estimated species of birds, 126 species of fish, 590 species of butterflies and 47 species of reptiles in the park. A recent study also points out the over a third of Nepal's total population is in Chitwan. See Nepal Jungle Safari for more information.

This itinerary also can be divided into two different part like- 2 night 3 day jungle safari in Nepal and 5 day hiking in Nepal. So as per as your request we will suit your itinerary. The Royal Trek gives you an idea of short trekking in Nepal and Chitwan Jungle Safari gives you an experiences of Nepal Wildlife style.

The Jomsom Trek is indeed a classical trek, essentially the final third of the Annapurna Circuit, follows the Kali Gandaki Valley between the soaring peak of Annapurna & Dhaulagiri. Finally, it emerges to the north of the main Himalayan range, on the dry, desert- like Tibetan Plateau. A several days walk beyond Jomsom, takes you the final destination, Muktinath, the holy temple. This trek allows access to the high mountains of the Himalayas within a reasonable timeframe and without ascending to extreme altitude. You will then return to Pokhara by taking a flight from Jomsom.
