Trip Overview

A remote wilderness of western Nepal offers a superb experience of nature and a visit to Rara Lake

Rara Lake Trekking is a remote wilderness of western Nepal offers a superb experience of nature and a visit to Rara Lake, Nepal's largest Lake at 3062m. Beginning the trek from the mountain airstrip of Jumla after flying from Kathmandu via Nepalgunj, the trail passes through green countryside which provides unusual glimpses of a culture and scenery quite different from that found elsewhere in Nepal and which eventually culminates to the Rara Lake National Park.

This beautiful high altitude lake is surrounded by alpine meadows and forests of pine, juniper and spruce, whilst in the background you can view the magnificent snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas. The entire route is 'off the beaten track' which involves the crossing of Ghurchi Lagna pass at (3450m.) on the way to Rara Lake and a few ridges at around 3000m. when hiking on the way back.
