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.

“This trek starts with an incredible flight to Lukla which gives views of the landscape which you will soon be trekking through. The trek began with a short walk to get you started and then starts getting steeper up to the higher altitudes. The valley which you trek through follows an amazing blue river which you cross many times using the exciting suspension bridges. Namche bazar is the second stop which is a hub of trekker activity and a good place to pick up amenities before going higher up. Once you get above 4500m the landscape completely changes and you start to get up close views of some huge peaks. Arriving at Basecamp was the highlight for me, partially because it was the reason for the trek but also to see the huge glacier, which is the first part the the expeditions to the Everest summit, was awesome.”

“The trek was even more incredible than I imagined. The accommodation and the food made it relaxing after walking for the day through breath taking scenery.

Everyday you see unreal views of some of the most amazing mountains in the world. My personal favourite was the part walking to Gokyo Lake. This route is less busy and it felt like a real adventure. Walking through the different altitudes felt like different worlds, constantly changing landscapes, terrain and wild life.

Gokyo was by far may favourite village to stay in, with views overlooking Gokyo Ri and the lake.

The nepali people are warm, friendly and make you feel at home in their lodges. Walking through several villages, seeing how the people live and the families was an experience which was worth it alone.

The route is perfect if you want to see Gokyo lake, base camp and kalapatar without walking back the same way. I believe that walking up via gokyo, chola pass and then to gorshep really assisted in my altitude acclimatization.”
