  • The Trek

    The Rara Lake is the biggest lake of Nepal and situated in high altitude of 3062 m. The surface of Rara Lake is around 8 square kilometer and the perimeter 9 kilometer. The length of the lake is 5 kilometers and it is 2 kilometers wide, the altitude around 3062 meter and the max. Depth is 167 meter.

    This beautiful Rara Lake Trek begins from the mountain airstrip of Jumla after flying from Kathmandu via Nepalgunj, the trail passes through green countryside which provides unusual glimpses of culture and scenery quite different from that found elsewhere in Nepal and which eventually culminates to the Rara Lake and National Park.

    Alpine meadows and forests of pine, juniper and spruce surround the lake, whilst in the background you can view the magnificent snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas. The entire route is ‘off the beaten track’ which involves the crossing of Ghurchi Lagna pass at 3450m on the way to Rara Lake and a few ridges at around 3000 meters when hiking on the way back. This trek through the remote wilderness of western Nepal offers a superb experience of nature and a visit to Rara Lake, Nepal’s Largest Lake at 3062 meters.
