About Trip

Khayer Lake trekking is one of the immaculate trekking trails and undoubtedly the one that grants such a majestic parade of the Himalayas that it is out of this world. It calls by the known as local name Khopra Danda Trek. The one-of-a-kind pathway takes you via deep jungles, rhododendron and bamboo forests, terraced hills, classic settlements and steep ridges that lead to Annapurna South. Fewer trekkers have set foot on this trail compared to other trails in Annapurna region, but it is getting popular by virtue of the views rewarded by it. It is like trekking in companion with the mighty Annapurna Massif and Dhaulagiri Mountain because we can see them explicitly throughout the trail. It is a fortune to ultimately witness the closest view of Annapurna South from the destination point i.e. Khayer Lake.

The pleasing of the eyes does not end here as on our way back us check out another vantage point Poonhill from where we will watch the sunrise view over the array of the mightiest Himalayan ranges and the prominent peaks such as Annapurna, Mt. Fishtail, Dhaulagiri, Lamjung, Manaslu, etc.
