Rara Lake Trek is one of the best trips in Western Nepal. The journey to Nepal’s biggest Lake Rara offers a lifetime experience to any visitor. The 10-day trek starts after Kathmandu- Nepalgunj-Jumla flight and extends along the interesting local villages and serene Sinja valley. The trekkers pass through Rara National park, one of the most beautiful national parks in Nepal and home to some of the endangered species in the world. The heavenly Rara Lake (2290 m) is renowned as queen of lakes because of its extraordinary beauty and spectacular mountain views.
The green coniferous forests surrounding the 5 km long and 2 km wide lake with the breathtaking mountain views in the backdrop and mirrored on the lake itself symbolize the extraordinary beauty. Further, the rich cultural heritage of inhabitants of Jumla and Mugu offers a great learning experience for the trekkers. The trek is suitable for anyone with normal health conditions as it doesn’t require hiking to high altitudes. However, the basic trekking gears ensure comfort and safety throughout the trek
The best season to visit Rara is summer and autumn as the weather conditions are comparatively favorable and the mesmerizing view is guaranteed. During winter the Rara surrounding receives snowfall and the trekkers can make trips to this “piece of heaven” even on some of the winter days. Another major highlight of the trip is bird-watching as many species of birds migrate to Rara National Park mostly during November and April.
