Rara Lake is the largest of Nepal’s lakes. Located in the serenity of the isolated Dolpo region, its shores are majestic in their unspoiled appeal. The magic feeling of visiting this virgin area will accompany us on this journey, along with the best scenery in northwestern Nepal. The moderate trek from Jumla to Rara Lake will include glimpses into cultures and scenery much different from the rest of Nepal. We’ll cross a wilderness of mountain meadows and forests of pine, spruce, and juniper dotted with remote and isolated settlements. Along a backdrop of snow-capped mountain ranges, we’ll pass over several 3000 meter ridges on our way to Rara National Park, where we’ll explore the pristine natural surroundings of Rara Lake.
