Overview

Annapurna Khayer Lake Trek has got a distinct feature which goes through off-the beaten trail. It is an exotic trek in Annapurna, which is also known as Khopra ridge trek or Khopra community trek. When other trekking trails are occupied by the motor roads or highly trafficked, this trek is peaceful and you can hear the chirping birds’ melodies. Khayer Lake is located almost at 5000 meters, so you need proper acclimatization.

The biological diversity surrounds the trail to Khayer Lake. Rhododendron forest, waterfalls, hilly gorges and some tiny villages are the route based features of this excursion. It is a moderate trek which begins from Nayapul. Walking through the easy trail, you head towards Ghorepani and Poon Hill. First the trek leads you to Poon Hill, which is the best viewpoint to explore the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri panoramas. Then you approach towards Tadapani and split towards the Khopra ridge via Bhisi Kharka and Chistibung. It is becoming in a primary list of the trekkers in Nepal to find a suitable trekking. Khayer Lake is located at 4827 meters altitude and offers the incredible views of Annapurna South, Himchuli and pyramid shaped Fishtail. Khayer Barah temple is another attraction of the trek with the spiritual insights. The back route leads you via Swata village to the lower section of Ghorepani and retrace all the way to Nayapul.

Vertex Holiday recommends you the spring season when you can trek exploring the blooming rhododendron forests of the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP). It is an unforgettable experience of the community trek to Khopra ridge/Lake. We organize both camping and lodge based Khopra Lake trekking with the suitable itinerary.
