Rara Lake Trek

Trekking in Rara Lake offers the best scenery on the north-western most side of Nepal. Within its confines lie the Rara national park, the smallest park in Nepal, where in turn the country’s largest lake, the Rara Lake can be found (10.8 sq. km. At 2,990 meters). Considered one of the finest parks in the world, Rara National Park abounds in coniferous forest and is the ideal habitat for the musk deer, Himalayan black bear and other faunae. The Danfe (Impeyan Pheasant) the national bird of Nepal, flies above while a variety of fish, the snow trout, inhabit the Rara lake. Adding charm to the region are its generally open-hearted and friendly people. The trek can begin in Jumla (over an hours flight from Kathmandu) or from the nearer Nepalgunj.

Rara is a good destination point for trekking in the west. The trail is very much “off the beaten path” and affords glimpses of culture and scenery very different from those in the rest of the country. The centerpiece of the park is the biggest lake of Nepal. Along mountain paths and a series of picturesque villages, one reaches the magnificent banks of Rara lake. The park includes Trans- Himalayan valley with high ridges covered with forest and alpine pastures.

Unique Path Trekking organized our trek. we went trekking with Jhamka (guide) & Prem (proter). The trek was interesting, challenging and overall an enjoyable experience. Jhamka was very attentive and endeavored to make our trip comfortable. You have a beautiful country and we were very excited to have a experience Nepal (even the Maoist we met were very friendly). Prem should participate in the next Olympic games, he is very fit man. Loved the Annapurna, loved the apple brandy and loved my trek.
