HIGHLIGHTS
  • Trek to Nepal's biggest lake
  • Authentic beauty of unexplored Karnali region of Nepal
  • Fantastic panoramic views of the area
This 12-day trek will take you to Rara Lake, the biggest lake in Nepal. This is one of the most undisturbed trekking routes in Nepal and this trek ensures that you will have a quiet and enchanting experience.

Rara lake lies on the remote Karnali zone in the north western Nepal. The region is made up of long ridges covered with temperate forests and alpine pastures enclosing high valleys. Summer rainfall is low but winter snow can be heavy and persistent. Since the region is fairly high and free from monsoon thunderstorms, the summer season is ideal for trekking. Winters are cold, but in the autumn season, trekking is rewarded with a profusion of alpine flowers.

The Rara Lake adventure starts with two flights - first to Nepalgunj then to Jumla, from where our trekking begins.

Please check out our Itinerary. We look forward to take you on a magnificent trek.

Denisova's review for another Unique Adventure International Pvt Ltd tour
“My husband and I finished our 2-week trek to The Everest Base Camp a few days ago. It was absolutely fantastic! Unique Adventure provided us with impeccable service. Khum was very amiable and lovely from the very beginning. His personal approach combined with professionalism helped us gain an experience of a lifetime. Our lovely guide Nk Shrestha made our base camp experience very memorable. He was very thoughtful and considerate. What's more, his great sense of humour kept us positive and determined for the whole duration of the trek. I strongly recommend Unique Adventures as I am convinced they can make your Himalayan experience truly unforgettable.”

Randa's review for another Unique Adventure International Pvt Ltd tour
“The views were worth it. Challenging but doable, and so empowering ! Everyday was a different landscape, deeply beautiful in it's own way. The top was so alien, draw and dream like, while Durali (hidden valleys) are so green and soothing. Challenging but doable, and so empowering ! We loved our guide Dharma. He is a kind and caring man. He took great care of us and was very professional and attentive. He was also fun to be around and we had some our most unforgettable moments laughing, singing "Risham Firiri" and dancing with him. Pasang was our Sherpa, he was a shy young man with a beautiful smile and superhero energy, when we made it to ABC, he continued to the top of one the mountains, RUNNING, with a friend from his village!! Unique Adventure were always reactive and arranged for this amazing team.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.

     

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.
