Khayer Lake, Khopra Ridge trek is one of the less trodden as well as the rarely trekked locations in the Annapurna region of Nepal. The off-beaten routes offered by the trek offer a unique and pleasurable experience in order to explore the mystique of the less known locations like the KayerBarah Lake and the Khopra Ridge trek.
The trail of the Khayer Lake, Khopra Ridge trek is called the Yak trail. The trail is characterized by less human life and more exquisite beauty of nature. The trek offers exclusive views of the Annapurna range as well as the Dhaulagiri and the soaring peak of Fishtail Mountain. The main attraction of the trek, however, is the sacred Khayer Lake which is also the maximum altitude of the trek. The alpine edges of the Khopra Ridge trek are another added attraction. The ethnic people of this area drink blood on festivities as they believe that their wishes will come true. The Khayer Lake, Khopra Ridge trek thus also offers the chance to mix in with these ethnic inhabitants of the region.

My wife and i enjoyed a great trip with meandering in along the tracks in the Annapurna area. Wetaliored our trip and modified it en route to suite us. Simbir supported by Dil (porter) provided great service and was a fabulous guide. As well as providing a very professional guide service he tirelessly worked to meet any requests and make out trip a wonderful experience. I have no hesitation in recommending him to other trekkers looking for a high standard of guiding service combined with a very good travel companion....
