Tour description

Khayer Lake Trekking is one of the newest trekking routes in the Annapurna region which offers an extraordinary view of the Himalayas like the Annapurna massif, Dhaulagiri massif, and Nilgiri (7061m) from KhopraDanda. Khayer Lake trekking is an alternate trekking route map for a trekker who likes quite treks on off the beaten paths which takes you to the pristine Khayer Lake sitting peacefully in the foothills of the Annapurna South (7219m). The trek lets you explore the beauty in remoteness as it walks through remote mountain ridges, rhododendron and bamboo forests, terraced hills, and traditional settlements of the Gurung and Magar ethnics.

Khayer Lake short trekking starts from the City of Lakes, Pokhara, from where you drive to Nayapul, a and start walking on beautifully placed stone steps to reach the Gurung village of Ghandruk. The face of Annapurna (8091m) and Machhapuchhre (6993m) look dreamy from the stone alleyways of Ghandruk. As the trek goes further and leaves the Annapurna Circuit route, you leave behind the settlements and walk on the steep and solitary trail to reach Khopra ridge from where you can witness the glory of the Annapurna massif and Dhaulagiri massif. Although the landscape looks amazing throughout the way, the highlight of this trek is walking on the mountain ridge to reach the deep blue Khayer Lake, also known as KhayerBarah. The close-up view of Annapurna South on the backdrop and on its reflection on the surface of the pristine lake makes the challenges of the trek worth it. The pleasing of the eyes does not end here as on your way back, you check out another vantage point, Poonhill, from where you watch the sunrise view over the array of the mightiest Himalayan ranges such as Annapurna, Machhapuchhre, and Dhaulagiri.
