Jumla Rara Lake Trek

15 Days

The Rara Lake Trek through the remote wilderness of western Nepal offers a superb experience of nature. Rara Lake is Nepal’s largest lake situated at 2980m. The trek begins from the mountain airstrip of Jumla, after flying from Nepalgunj. The trail passes through green countryside, which provides unusual glimpses of a culture and scenery quite different from that found elsewhere in Nepal.

The Rara Lake Trek eventually culminates in Rara National Park. This beautiful high altitude lake is surrounded by alpine meadows and forests of pine, juniper and spruce, while in the background you can view the magnificent snow-capped peaks of the lesser-known Himalaya.
