Best season :  All year round Type of trek :  Tea house/Camping
Duration :  19 Days Starting point :  Pokhara

Hidden beyond the Annapurna massif, the base of the Khayar Lake is one of the most spectacular vantage points from where to take in the beauty of Nepal’s mid hill panorama.  Still less known and least affected by the mainstream tourism activities, the Khayar Lake Trek traverses through scenic Gurung communities and the thick rhododendron forest before finally culminating into the base of high altitude Khayar Lake (4827m).  Splendid views of Nepal’s central Himalayas (from Mt. Annapurna to Mt.  Dhaulagiri ranges) and the creeping sounds of birds keep accompanying the visitors throughout the journey.
