Rara Lake Trekking, the hidden remote area of north-western high Himalayas of Nepal lays you a glorious experience of nature and an unforgettable visit to observe Rara Lake recognized as largest lake in Nepal (2990m.). Rara Lake is located in Mugu district of the Karnali Zone near Gam Ghadi. Also, Lake Rara is a famous tranquil pilgrimage for Nepalese. This stunning high altitude lake is encircled by alpine meadows and forests of juniper, pine, spruce. Apart from the lake, you can observe magnificent view of snow-capped Himalayas while trekking to Rara Lake.
We start our Rara Lake trekking after taking a flight from Kathmandu to Jumla and pass all the way through green countryside which offers unique glances of a culture and landscape and ultimately makes way to Rara National Park, a smallest protected areas of Nepal which occupies space of 106 sq. km. Around 20 different species of mammals and 214 species of birds and several other species of plants as well as wild lives like leopards, musk deer ghorals, Himalayan black bear etc. can be spotted here. Rara National park also serves as a delight for bird watchers, particularly during November and April when many varieties of birds migrate there. Also, you will observe mixture of diverse ethnic people Gurung and Magar at lower region and Tibetan origin at higher area while trekking.During the winter there is time and again snowfall on the edge surrounding the Rara Lake where as in the autumn season you will be rewarded with an abundance number of alpine flowers. So, if you are searching of trekking in wilderness and off the beaten track, this trek is a perfect choice And we, EncountersNepal arrange your trekking package to make your choice worthwhile.
