Rara Lake

Rara lake is the largest lake in Nepal. It covers an area of 10.8 sq.km. Rara lake is located in the Mugu district at an altitude of 2,990 metres above sea level, and falls within the Rara National Park. Surrounded by lush forests and spectacular mountains it is described as "a shimmering blue jewel set in a ring of snowy peaks".

The trek to Rara lake is a difficult but very rewarding experience. Although the amenities for trekkers have improved over the years, they are still not comparable to the facilities available in the more popular trekking routes. The Rara trekking route will thus give you a very pure trekking experience on self-sufficiency, secluded trails, and nature at its best. The culture and scenery are very different from the popular trekking routes - it’s a beautiful and calm haven surrounded by forests, and a paradise for bird watchers.

Rara lake and its surrounding area was declared a national park in 1976 to preserve the beauty of the lake and protect the area from pollution, deforestation, and not least Rara Lake’s rich fish life.

Winter season in this area is cold and harsh. The best time to visit this lake is thus during Fall or spring, i.e., September-October and April-May. The pleasant atmosphere with a panoramic view of the scenic mountains makes it a breath-taking sight.

Beginning with a flight to Jumla from Kathmandu or Nepalgunj trekkers then walk along the mountain path. The trail passes by many small villages with friendly and hospitable local people. It takes 3 to 4 days of walking to reach Rara lake. However, the magnificent views of snow-capped Himalayan mountain peaks are extremely motivating!
