The flawless beauty of Rara Lake has a positive aura that can bring any wandering soul in peace. The lake is not only the largest lake in Nepal but a perfect destination to be at. The remote off beaten trekking trail takes you amidst the forests to the serene and tranquil Rara Lake. The mountains that surround the place add to the picturesque beauty of the lake. And most important fact, it is the deepest lake of Nepal.

Rara Lake is also an amazing place for trekking, camping and many more things that nature lover likes to do. The place not only offers some incredible views of the remote Nepal but also the beauty of nature like forests, lakes, mountains, hills and many more.

Rara is very calm and remote destination to be at if you is looking for a break from the busy city life. Due to its remoteness, the place is intact in its natural glory. Rara lake trek is more than just Rara Lake visit. It’s a mix of various trekking adventure at once.

First of all, it’s an off beaten path which is a good choice of place for all the enthusiastic trekkers who would love to experience the uneven rugged paths of Nepal. You may also have an option of camping trek at your own will. Besides, owning to its remoteness, the place is still untouched by any kind of modernization. It is also ideal for those trekkers who would like to avoid crowded trekking trails and opt for less travelled serene destinations.

Rara Lake lies in the Mugu and Jumla district of Nepal in between the lush forest of Rara National Park. Rara National Park is a treasure of Nepal and a home to many species of floras and faunas amongst which few are rare and endangered species. Musk deer, Himalayan black bear, leopard, Himalayan goral, Red Panda, and Peasant and some of the rare species found in the park.

The lake and its surrounding area i.e. Rara National Park is believed to have one hundred seventy four species of flowers, fifty one species of mammals and two hundred fourteen species of birds. The natural richness of the area can be predicted from this data as well.

The shimmering beauty of the lake, incredible views of the mountains and lush forests around makes Rara lake a must visit destination for all the nature lovers. The trail to Rara Lake goes through one of the far-flung places in Nepal. Hence, the trek can be an opportunity to explore wilderness and local people residing in those areas. The people residing in those remote areas lead a traditional lifestyle. You will encounter sparse settlements in this area but they share their own unique culture, customs and traditions.

If you are planning to visit Rara Lake, then you have few options. However, owing to its off beaten nature and remote location, travelling to Rara Lake is not an easy task. You can get there either by walking along the trekking trail or by bus/jeep. Another alternative to reach there is taking a flight to Talcha airport. If you opt for a trekking journey, your journey starts with a flight from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj and then to Jumla. At first we walk to chala chaur, cross a pass and walk up Rara Lake via Botan. From Rara lake, we move ahead to Jhyari and cross a pass to Chautha. We then walk up to Tharamara and return back to Jumla and conclude the journey.

The best time to visit Rara Lake is from March to May and September to November. At this point of time, you can get some great views of lake along with the mountains. Even the weather and climatic conditions are perfect for travel. So, are you ready for this mesmerizing journey to so call – heaven on earth?
