Begnas Thulokot Trek - 1 Day

Completed by Charles, Prince of Wales in 1980, Begnas Thulokot Trek is a part of the “Royal Trek”. This 8 hour trek in the Pokhara region gives you an opportunity to see beautiful unspoiled countryside villages and a magnificent view of the Annapurna Range. Another main highlight of this trek is the boating experience in the pristine waters of Begnas Lake.

Pokhara is the second largest city of Nepal after Kathmandu. It is just at a distance of 200 km from Kathmandu, and is easily accessible. Hiking and Trekking around Pokhara is a wonderful experience to have. Here is the best half day trek / hiking that can be done in Pokhara.
