An expedition to one of the most remote regions of Nepal, Rara Lake Trek is truly an extraordinary experience. The trail takes us through the districts of Jumla and Mugu as we explore the Rara Lake which is quite astonishing.
A Remote Wilderness
Situated at an altitude of 2990 meters, Rara Lake is the largest lake in Nepal. It is located in the Rara National Park premises, which is a sanctuary for several plants and animals. The park, established in 1976, houses about 51 species of mammals and 214 species of birds. Hence, due to the abundance of dense forest and a variety of birds, it is an ideal destination for bird watching. Moreover, it is also a natural habitat for the musk deer and Himalayan black bear. The landscapes are mostly high ridges covered with dense forest and pasture lands.
We begin our Rara Lake Trek from Kathmandu as we fly to the Nepalgunj Airport. We then hike northwards through green forests and ridges. The woods are mostly covered by pine, spruce, and juniper and surrounded by gorgeous views of the snow-clad mountains. Furthermore, the trail is mostly uninhabited with only a couple of small villages on the way.
An Emerging Adventure
Until recently, there were no facilities of accommodation in the trekking route of the Rara Lake Trek. The few trekkers who ventured on this expedition used to spend the nights in outdoor camps. However, much has changed now as there are several lodges and teahouses opened on the way.
You can do Rara Lake Trek at any time of the year. However, we recommend the months of March through May or September through November. During winter, the temperature falls to sub-zero, and heavy snowfall may occur. Moreover, July and August bring the monsoon rain which can be hindering to trekkers.
