Rara trekking is one of the less crowed trekking route but oasis of natural beauty with more then dozen species of flora and fauna. This trek through the remote countryside of western Nepal offers a superb experience of nature and a visit to Rara Lake, Nepal’s Largest Lake at 3062 meters gives you pleasure environment of relaxation. 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 scenic adventure 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 3000 meters when hiking on the way back.
This trek can be done at any time of the year and through this trek one can find the natural beauty of Nepal and view unexploited rural culture as well.
