The Rara Lake Trekking takes place in one of the most remote and rural areas of Nepal – offering a glimpse of Nepali culture and scenery in a way that is quite different from any other trekking destination in Nepal.
The pinnacle of this trip is the beautiful and pristine Rara Lake. With an area of 9.8 square kilometers and a depth of 167m, ‘The Queen of Lakes’ is regarded as the most extensive and deepest lake in Nepal. They were lying at an altitude of 2,990m above sea level. The trekking route to reach it is rough and involves many ups and downs, taking you through wild forests and isolated villages. As such, it’s remoteness and tricky trekking trails attract only a small number of brave trekkers each year, ensuring Rara Lake stays in pristine condition and continues to this day to lie as a gem amidst the Rara National Park.
The Rara National Park is a habitat for many beautiful and rare flora and fauna in the remote western part of the country. With lush greens and vibrant colors from all sorts of flowers playing host to various species of endangered birds and mountain wildlife, such as musk deer, the Himalayan black bear, wild cats, wolves, goral, and even red panda.
Along with the lake, and its park surroundings, on this journey, you can expect to see some of the world’s most renowned mountain peaks and peek into the lives of people living in some of the most remote lands on earth. We recommend visiting between September to October and April to May to make the most of this trip.
