Rara Lake Trek takes place in a remote and rural area of Nepal. The major attraction of this trek is the view of beautiful and pristine Rara Lake, also known as the Queen of Lakes. With an area of 9.8 square kilometer and depth of 167m, Rara Lake is regarded as the largest and deepest lake in Nepal. Rara Lake lies at an altitude of 2,990m above sea level and is located at the Rara National Park in Mugu and Jumla District, the remote western part of the country. The national park is the habitat for various species of endangered birds and mountain wildlife like musk dear, the Himalayan black bear, wild cats, wolves, red panda, goral etc.

The trekking route is quite rough and involves a great deal of ups and downs walking through forests and isolated villages. Due to its remoteness and rough trekking trails very few people visit Rara Lake. It offers a glimpse of the culture and scenery on the way which is quite different from the other trekking destinations in Nepal.
The best time to visit Rara Lake is between September to October and April to May.

During your trek
After visiting UNESCO World Heritage sites and trek preparation in Kathmandu, we fly to Nepalgunj and then again take another flight from Nepalgunj to Jumla. Our trek begins and ends at Jumla. We have to walk through the Rara National Park to reach the fantastic Rara Lake. During the trek you can see various unique flora and fauna, snowcapped mountains, pine forest and also witness the bucolic life of the locals.

Group or private
The Rara Lake Trek is one of the “off the beaten tracks” in Nepal. We operate this trek in both group and private treks. A Customized itinerary with personalized travel and accommodation is also available on request.
