Khayer lake trek

The Annapurna region of Nepal is a land so gorgeous; it’s long been the ultimate trekking dream for hikers. Here, the sacred peaks of Annapurna, Machapuchare and Dhaulagiri, shining with snow year round, tower over ancient rhododendron forests, icy glaciers/ rivers, and temperate jungles where leopard still roam. Plenty of trekkers come here for all this beauty – but few stray off the tourist routes.  Pristine treks visit off-the-beaten-track villages in the Annapurna region. Walkers stay in village communities - sometimes in people's homes - so there's time for real interaction with Nepalis. We eat with families.  We visit a village weaving workshop, a cheese making project, and have the chance to partake the celebration of two of the year’s major festivals Dashain and Tihar. We stay at a yak farming project on the laps of the Annapurna, and the high point of our trek is a visit to sacred Khayer Lake (4500m) surrounded with shrines, and with the peak of Annapurna towering above.

Our family of 4 trekked to the base of Annapurna South in March this year (2012). The 14 day trip was organized by the competent staff of Pristine Mountain Adventure . We did several homestays but mostly community lodges many of which were built and benefit the community they are in. Our guide, Narayan, was personable and professional. We felt throughout the whole trip that we were on an outing that not only offered fantastic vistas, delicious meals but also interesting company that we got to know as the days progressed. I think one of the benefits of working with Pristine Mountain was that there was a real tie between them (the staff) and the area that we were trekking through. Our guide and one of the porters was from one of the villages we stayed in and was instrumental in developing this trek. Their intimate knowledge of the area was apparent throughout. As a 65 year old with a new knee I was somewhat apprehensive about the physical challenge of the trek, but everyone was patient and encouraging when I lagged behind and as it turned out the pace of the trek was perfect for me. We also had some rest days at the most stunning sites.The trek is somewhat new, off the beaten track, and had an authentic feel of neighborliness about it.

I would highly recommend Pristine Mountain for booking your treks. Professional, competent and friendly.
