Lying in the wild west of Nepal, Rara Lake is as breathtaking as it is isolated. Situated at an altitude of 2986m the lake covers 10 km in length, 3 km in width and 167 meters in depth, making it the largest lake of Nepal. Pine, spruce and juniper forest surrounding the lake along with the reflections of snow capped peaks in the deep blue water makes the view even more scenic and magnificent.
Also called the queen of Lakes, Rara lies in remote region ensconced within its smallest national park of Nepal. Covering mere 10.8 sq.km , the Rara National Park is home to 1074 species of flora, of which 16 are endemic and 51 species of fauna including musk dear, Himalayan black bear, goral, leopard and much more. With more than 200 species of bird, it’s a paradise for birdwatcher as well.
The trek will begin from Jumla, one of the least developed region of Nepal. You will then be passing through series of picturesque villages with glimpse of different cultures, high ridges covered with forest and alpine pastures before you finally catch the glimpse of the pristine lake.
If you love to travel off the beaten path, this will be one of the most incredible and fascinating trip you will ever take.
This trek can be done during any part of the year except from December to Feburary.
