Trip Overview

To Endeavour Rara Lake Trekking is to discover what lies in the far western region in Nepal, which is a home to the highest and biggest lake in Nepal, which showcases nestled snow-capped mountains and which leads you through accessible forest. This trek puts you to walk in a solitary path, wherein you follow off-the-beaten trail and enjoy the gifts of nature in a full swing; above all, you experience a variety of nature. All these that you see and where you walk, take place in the Rara National Park, a habitual place for musk deer, Himalayan black bear, leopard, Himalayan goral, Red Panda, and “Danfe” Besides this, the park also abounds with coniferous trees, such as pine, juniper, and spruce.

Since the trekking trail traverses lush green forest, it takes you on the journey of flora and ultimately to Rara Lake in whose water, you see the reflection of mighty and majestic Himalayas, which are overlooking at you. As you look at these mountains, you will be inspired by their splendid beauties to conquer them. The neighboring area of the lake is composed of one thousand and seventy-four species of flowers and is a home to fifty-one species of mammals and two hundred fourteen species of birds. The mountain circles the lake; the lake that is surrounded by mountains is not only beautiful, but also unique. The journey to Rara Lake Trekking also means a journey to the region of the medicinal plants.

The founder of the Great Outdoors Recreation Pages, Bill Greer has described the Rara Lake as “a shimmering blue jewel set in a ring of snowy peaks”.

The trekking trail that is ‘off the beaten trail’ in nature has the characteristics of crossing the Ghurchi Lagna Pass at 3450m and a lot of ridges at 3000 m respectively and heads to the quaint villages, where the life of the people exists not only at a high altitude, but is completely different from yours. Rara Lake Trekking shows the best of the above and beyond of the harder trekking trail, where you will be swallowed by the beauties of the arresting nature, you have decided to explore from your country. This trek is free from crowds, and it ends from where it began.
