Rara Lake is one of the least visited places in Nepal. It is located in one of the most remote areas of western Nepal. The 14 days of the trip starts with the mountainous flights from Kathmandu to the remote village of Nepalgunj. After that, we have asecond flight to the isolated city of Jumla. From Jumla we take a private jeep to Rara Lake. We follow the meanders of the Karnali river and drive offroad through the Saligasi forest. The Lake is one of the highest freshwater lakes and lies at an elevation of 2290m. It is known as the Queen of Lakes, due to its surrounding natural beauty, snowcapped mountains, and crystal clear water. The Lake is surrounded by the Rara National Park. In this Park, you can see the habitat for Musk Deer, Himalayan black bear, leopard, Himalayan goral, and other exotic animals. During the trip, you can get a chance to see not only the snowcapped mountains, Saligasi forest, and Lake but also get a chance to encounter the lifestyle of locals and their culture.
