Magical Rara Lake

per person

Magical Rara Lake Trek, into the wild west Nepal!
TripCode:
18 Days trip

Lake Rara (2,980m) is the biggest lake of Nepal that lies within the Rara National Park, located in the remotest corner of West Nepal near Nepal and Tibet border. This area is still explored very less and truly pristine that makes it one of the wildest parts of Nepal making a great destination. The unspoilt natural forest is of alpine type and the area has a wealth of historical significance and unique western Nepali culture. The scenery and mountain views along with the wild animals and birds make this a unique area for visitors who are looking for something different away from the much-travelled area. This is an adventure in an area with the least tourists that has stayed intact in terms of culture and natural environment.

Trekking
Rara is located in the remotest part of the Karnali zone, in the north–west of Nepal, close to Tibet. The trekking starts after a short flight to Jumla from Nepalgunj. Trekking days are normally about 6-7 hours long, though this can vary. You begin trekking after a hearty breakfast, stop for lunch in the middle of the day and in the afternoon where tea or coffee and cookies will be waiting for you upon your arrival in the camp. Meals consist of three courses mainly of local dishes, but you will be surprised at the tasty treats our experienced expedition cook will serve up.

Sleeping in a tent, this will be shared by two people, with a warm sleeping bag, inner liner and insulated mattress provided (if you wish extra comfort, you can bring your own blow-up mattress too). For drinking water, boiled water is provided after the meals, so make sure to bring a one or two-liter water bottle. A dug-out toilet tent will be set up near the camp.

Why trek to Rara!
Rara National Park is the smallest national park but in its heart, there you visit the most pristine and magical lake, Rara Lake. The park includes a trans-Himalayan valley with high ridges covered with forest and alpine pastures. Being among the local people with their distinctive culture and traditions gives the visitor a unique experience and makes for an unforgettable and wonderful holiday.

The people here are very behind-the-times, even primitive, and this gives the trekker a glimpse backwards in time and a chance to reflect on the differences of modern society and development. The great high mountain scenery enchants and fascinates as always. Like most of Nepal, Rara National Park is a naturalist’s paradise. Animals like the serow, musk deer, yellow-throated marten and a wide variety of birds such as the Impeyan pheasant or Himalayan monal, Kalij and many other species of birds can be seen along the trail and around the lake. The lake at 2,980m also hosts snow trout that are endemic species.

Trekking to this destination offers the best in scenery and you are very much off-the-beaten-track, with the trek going through one of the most pristine and finest national parks in the world. At the same time, the western Nepal cultural experience is unique and is quite different from that of rest of Nepal.
