Khayar lake trekking overview
Khayar Lake trekking route lies in the Annapurna region. This route has been developed to suit the trekker’s demand for a new destination in the Annapurna region. Khayar Lake trekking offers the trekkers with a breathtaking panoramic view and a chance to interact with a mixed culture of Gurung and Magar people. The trekkers can take in the mesmerizing views of the Himalayas including Mt. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Nilgiri, and Khayar Kopra. The most beautiful Khayar Lake is the key attraction of this area.
Khayar Lake trekking is one of the trekking routes in the Annapurna region which lies in the center of the Annapurna area, proving the trekkers with the stunning view of the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Nilgiri Ranges. Khayar Lake trekking follows a quite trail passing through the traditional villages and lush forests, away from the popular and busy routes. During the trek, we can enjoy the view of the great Annapurna Himalayan range in the Annapurna area, sacred Khayar Lake (4500 Meters) as well as an amazing sunrise from the Ghorepani Poon Hill (3210m).
Besides the extravaganza scenes of the peaks, the warm hospitality of the Gurung Community along the way will make your trekking a lifetime memorable experience. Khayar Trekking route is off the beaten trail, on to the long, remote mountain ridges, through exposit forest and habitual villages. Annapurna region into the wild glacial areas, below the Annapurna region in the South is demanding but well worth the effort. The view of the stunning, snow-covered Annapurna inspires the trekkers in each and every step along the way. The pleasant tranquil trail starts from Pokhara. From Pokhara, our walk begins in the lower, more temperate region of the forested hillsides and through the Gurung and Magar villages. Nayapul will lead you through forests of rhododendron, with a glimpse of some wildlife and vegetation, the orchids send out perfume along the trail during spring.
As we move higher through the rhododendron, the view of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli and Machhapuchhare are astounding. You will be amazed to see the breathtaking view of the snowcapped peaks. Then, we leave habitation behind and walk through forests until we finally emerge above the tree line at Kopra Danda, a fantastic mountain wilderness. You will enjoy the views of the Annapurna massif from Khobra Hill, sacred Khayar Lake (4500m) that offers Khun Khane Festival (Yak blood-drinking) and is really popular. The trek back to Pokhara takes us through Ghorepani, Poon Hill, Tadapani, Ghandruk Saulbazar Birethanti, and Nayapul.

Dammaru Niraula Trekking Guide Trip Leader I have had an association with Dammaru over the last three years. My first trek with Dammaru was to the Solu Khumbu region where he tailored a trek to suit our request to climb some remote passes and stay off the main tourist routes where possible. His knowledge of the area was very impressive and his attention to our safety was always his major concern. The second trek I did with Dammaru two years…

I was a member of a group of nine friends from Northamptonshire in 204 from the UK, on a trek of the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal. Apart from one member, we were all approaching or over the age of 60 and were all well aware of the difficulties we could encounter at Thorong La which sits at an altitude of 5,416 meters (17,769…

Dammaru Niraula was our guide and confidant for our recent visit to Nepal. We went on a humanitarian visit to build a hothouse in the village of Phortse in the Khumbu region of Nepal but also included some trekking on a personal level before and after our project. Dammaru was a vital link in getting the project off the ground and then as a support person in Nepal before, during and after. He completed the following tasks with the utmost professionalism and patience. Arranged transfer of a large number of funds from Australian bank account to Nepalese bank account. Communications with the village before we arrived to ensure the walls were built. Organized our itinerary and necessary bookings for the trekking part of our journey for 8 adults. Once we arrived in Nepal he then assisted us in purchasing all the gear we needed for the finishing of the hothouse. e.g. Polycarbonate roof sheeting and the many other bits of hardware necessary. Transport of the roofing etc to Phortse village via helicopter, plane, yak, and porter. As well as being a part of the project Dammaru also was our trekking guide for the duration of our trip of 5 weeks. He organized everything for us from the hotel, in Kathmandu and everything in between our trek to base camp. He is honest, reliable and always puts the customer first. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dammaru to anyone who is considering a trip to Nepal.
My husband and I embarked on a trip to Nepal in October 2006. We were hoping to avoid the large tour groups and were referred to Himalayan Holidays based in Kathmandu as a provider of customized tours. We had looked on the net to determine the tour we wanted to undertake and spoke to many people and eventually decided 6-day on Ghorepani Poon Hill trek. We live in a plain and therefore training for the trek was a challenge in itself. We spent our weekends climbing up and down a 700metre high hill that was regarded as sufficiently steep for our training needs. However, we were unsure of what to expect in Nepal and were concerned about our levels of fitness for the trek that we had in mind. We were introduced to our guide, Dammaru at the hotel we were staying in Kathmandu and our anxieties were quickly alleviated. This diminutive gentleman exuded confidence and assured us that he was able to accommodate our individual fitness levels and ensure that our time in his country was hassle free. And indeed he did! Without it being particularly noticeable, Dammaru controlled the tempo of our daily treks in order that the enjoyment factor always exceeded any physical discomfort. His relationship with the locals was both real & genuine which meant we never felt like intruders or uncomfortable in their presence. Dammaru's keen negotiation skills with the local tea house proprietors' meant the delay between arriving & unwinding from the challenges of our daily treks was minimal with the accommodation always being appropriate to our needs. His professionalism was faultless. He provided us with a wealth of information on all aspects of the history, culture, flora, and fauna of this remarkable country. Not only was he a fantastic guide, but his cheeky grin and sense of humor ensured Dammaru to be a fantastic traveling companion. Our dealings with Dammaru exceeded all expectations and we hope to make a return visit to this stunningly beautiful country.
