Rara Lake Trek

Rara Lake trekking pictureRara Lake is lies in the very remote aria  north-west of Nepal.Rara is a good destination point for trekking in the west.The trail is very much "off the beaten path" and affords glimpses of culture and scenery very different from those in the rest of the country.The trek can begin in Jumla (over an hours flight from Kathmandu) or from the nearer Nepalgunj. Within its confines lie the Rara national park, the smallest park in Nepal, where in turn the country's largest lake, the Rara Lake can be found (10.8 sq. km. At 2,990 meters). Considered one of the finest parks in the world, Rara National Park abounds in coniferous forest and is the ideal habitat for the musk deer, Himalayan black bear and other faunae. The Danfe (Impeyan Pheasant) the national bird of Nepal, flies above while a variety of fish, the snow trout, inhabit the Rara lake.Adding charm to the region are its generally open-hearted and friendly people.The final four days of the trek offer superb views over Mugu, the southern mountains of Humla and the border ranges of Tibet. The trail takes us 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.
