Annapurna Khayer trekking is a remote and less travelled trekking route in the Annapurna region is perfect for those who would like to travel less travelled route. In the Annapurna Khayer trek, you get a chance to explore traditional villages, breathtaking Himalayan views, infinite and diverse cultures along with tempting and extraordinary views of White Water Rivers and centuries-old monumental landscapes.

The exotic and exciting Annapurna Khayer trek's ultimate highlight, Khayer Tal /lake is situated in the western part of Nepal in the Annapurna region. One of the major reasons it is a less travelled trail and an untouchable destination by the trekkers is because of the lack of publicity of the beauty of the place in the tourism sector. We trek for about 2 weeks through trails dominated by colorful and exquisite rhododendron forests and stunning views of few of the highest Himalayas like the Mt Dhaulagiri, Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Annapurna South, Machhapuchhre, Hiunchuli, Lamjung Himal, Tukuche peak, Nilgiri and so on and ultimately get to the beautiful and tranquil Khayer Lake, the showstopper of the Annapurna Khayer trek.

Come join us for this relatively new trekking route in the Annapurna region where the Himalayas, the culture, and traditions are waiting for you to come and explore them. Annapurna Khayer trekking route is newly introduced trekking in the Annapurna Region.

Trek FAQ

Some essential questions and answers for Annapurna Khayer Trekking:

How can you trek in Annapurna Khayer trekking?
First 2/3 days and last 2/3 days of the trip will be staying in the local guest houses. And, rest of the days will be camping (tented camp). On a camping trek you will sleep in tents. The staff includes a guide, cook, Sherpa and sufficient porters to carry all trekking gear. Even if you have never camped before, there is no need to worry that you won't enjoy the experience. The tents we provide are roomy, the sleeping pads/ mattresses are comfortable and international style food of a high standard is freshly prepared and served. On all of our treks a bathroom tent is provided as well as a dining tent with tables and camp stools, providing a cozy, comfortable atmosphere to eat and chat with fellow trekkers during the evening.

How Camping Trek is operated?
In a camping Trek, day starts around 6 a.m. with a cup of hot tea or coffee followed by a bucked of warm water for their washing and cleaning. After packing up their stuff and daypack, the trekkers are requested to leave their camp and meet at the dinning table for breakfast. The trek started around 7.30 to 8 a.m. and the kitchen staffs go ahead of the group.
Our well trained staff packs all camping equipment and gears and the porters carry them to the next camping site. The trekkers should carry only personal belongings that they may need for the day like water bottle, rain gear, camera, etc.

The Trekkers can decide on their own on time for viewing the beautiful landscape, taking photographs and resting or making a short pause. The walk to the lunch spot normally takes 3 hours. Our cook and assistant serve hot lunch upon arrival. The afternoon walk takes about 3 to 4 hours to reach at the night camp around 4/5 p.m. Tea and snacks are served while our sherpa pitch the camp. The dinner is served around 6/7 p.m. in the dining tent lit with a pressurized lantern and furnished with table and camping tools. We provide high quality tents, foam and mattress, and a simple toilet tent in every camp for your comfort.

Our well - trained and experienced cook and assistant prepare a variety of healthy, hygienic and clean food which is carried for the entire trek. Fresh Fruit and vegetable may taste on the way to trek.

After your great Annapurna Khayer Trekking you can enjoy and relax your time spending in jungle. We have 3 days trip to Chitwan National Park so visit our Chitwan jungle safari page for more info. 

Travel Insurances

A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is shocking. Therefore, travel insurance is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up with us. We strongly recommend that you be careful while choosing a policy as some makes special exceptions for adventure travel. Before buying your insurance make sure your insurer is aware of our adventure itinerary that you are going to undertake and is agreeable to cover all activities being undertaken in the trip. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For a group tours in urban areas, your insurance coverage of ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however better to have with them too. Again, in Tibet trips there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so no need to buy the air ambulance coverage in Tibet trips. Also, check your insurance policy firmly to even include trip cancellation, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.

Acclimatization

Alpine Eco Trek is professionals at operating at high-altitude. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on renting basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
