About Trek to Rara Lake
Adventure Hub Nepal will start to offer a ‘wild west trek’ from 2017 which is to the Rara Lake trek and it lies in the remote far northwest of Nepal. The lake is beautiful and tranquil. The region around Jumla and Rara Lake is still relatively unexplored. Our trek starts from Jumla, the largest upland hill town in western Nepal. Rara is Nepal’s largest lake and lies at an altitude of 2980m. An outstanding snow capped panorama of Dolpo and Tibetan mountains overshadows the scene across the deep clear waters of the lake. The National park consists of Himalayan black bear, leopard, black panther, musk deer, red panda, wild boar, Rhesus and languor monkeys and numerous species of birds. The final four days of the trek offer superb views over Mugu, the southern mountains of Humla and the border ranges of Tibet.
The trail takes us through grassy alpine pastures and remote villages, before descending steeply off the second pass to Jumla. From here, we fly back to Kathmandu via Nepalgunj. Highlights of the trek are; unsurpassed views of Rara Lake and mountain scenery, chance of spotting wildlife such as musk deer and black bear, ruins of the Malla dynasty’s old palace. ***Detailed itinerary itinerary can be customized according to your needs and length of stay***
