Book This TripRara Lake Trek

Duration: 16 Days
Trip Grade:
Best Season: March - Aug, Sept - Nov

Rara Lake lies in the remote far northwest of Nepal. Surrounded by verdant alpine meadows and steep densely forested ridges abundant with wildlife. The lake is stunningly beautiful, with unbelievable tranquility, a paradise untouched. The region around Jumla and Rara Lake is still relatively unexplored. The area gives the taste of natural wilderness, vastness and silence.

Our trek starts from Jumla, the largest upland hill town in west Nepal. Climbing gradually through forest of mixed Oak, Conifer, Pine, broad-leafed Chestnut, White birch and Rhododendron. We cross the lush alpine meadows with herds of Sheep and Goat herders. Rara is Nepal’s largest Lake and lies at an altitude of 3,050m. An outstanding snowcapped panorama of Dolpo and Tibetan mountains over shadows the scene across the deep clear water of the lake. The National Park is in habitat by Himalayan black bear, red panda, black panther,wild boar, rhesus, leopard, thar, musk deer, ghoral and langur monkeys and numerous species of birds.

The final four days of the trek offers superb views over Mugu, the southern mountains of Humla and the boarder ranges of Tibet. The trail leads up through grassy alpine pastures and remote villages, before descending steeply off the second pass to Jumla. From here we fly back to Kathmandu via Nepalgunj.
