Description of the tour

Tour itinerary: Kathmandu → Mugu → Kathmandu

It is famous for its breathtaking natural beauty and serene atmosphere. Since it lies in a remote and hilly area of the country, the trek is more fascinating. 


Rara Lake is the biggest lake in Nepal. It has a water surface of 10.8km square, a maximum depth of 167m, is 5.1 km long, and is 2.7 km wide. The pride of our country, the Rara Lake steadily lies at the elevation of 2990 m in Jumla and Mugu district, Karnali province.


The biggest attraction of Rara Lake Trek beside the lake is Rara National Park itself. The park covers a surface area of 106 km square. Even though it is the smallest National Park in our country, it is highly rich in diverse flora and fauna. The park is home to 51 species of mammals including red panda, musk deer, Indian leopard, yellow-throated Marten, Langur, etc. 241 species of birds, 2 species of reptiles, and 3 species of fish. Rare flora like brown oak, fir, birch, juniper, Rhododendrons, etc. is available here.


Rara Lake is one of the most popular and explored tourist destinations in Nepal. The Rara Lake Trek is not only covered with green vegetation, but also a stunning close-up view of snow-capped mountains, cultural villages, glaciers, and rivers. No doubt why Rara Lake is the most explored and popular tourist destination in Nepal.


Since Rara Lake lies in the Far-North western region of Nepal, it is still behind and relatively undeveloped. Local people of the Rara lake area still get very excited and genuinely happy whenever they see any tourists.


Due to the altitude and rugged terrain, the trek to Rara Lake normally lasts between 7 and 10 days. And the walk is moderate to challenging. However, the journey is well worth it because of the breathtaking scenery and distinctive cultural encounters along the route.
