This trek through the remote wilderness of western Nepal offers a superb experience of nature and a visit to Rara Lake, Nepal’s Largest Lake at 3062 meters. Beginning the trek from the mountain airstrip of Jumla after flying from Kathmandu via Nepalgunj, the trail passes through green countryside. Jumla – Rara Lake Trek throughout caters unusual glimpses of a culture and scenery quite different from that found elsewhere in Nepal and eventually culminates to the Rara Lake inside Rara National Park. This beautiful high altitude lake is surrounded by alpine meadows and forests of pine, juniper and spruce, whilst in the background you can view the magnificent snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas.
The entire route is ‘off the beaten trail’ which involves the crossing of Ghurchi Lagna pass at 3450m on the way to Rara Lake and a few ridges at around 3000 meters when hiking on the way back.
Any physically fit person can do this moderate trek anytime in March to May and October to early December.

The second time two of us trekked to Mera Peak, climbed to the summit accompanied by Ganesh, then back over... Read More
