Dolpo Rara Trekking

16 Days 15 Night

Trip Introduction

Trekking in Rara Lake offers the best scenery on the north-westernmost side of Nepal. Within its confines lie the Rara national park, the smallest park in Nepal, where in turn the country’s largest lake, the Rara Lake can be found (10.8 sq. km. At 2,990 meters). Considered one of the finest parks in the world, Rara National Park abounds in coniferous forest and is the ideal habitat for the musk deer, Himalayan black bear, and other fauna. The Dance (Impeyan Pheasant) national bird of Nepal, flies above while a variety of fish, the snow trout, inhabit in the Rara lake. Adding charm to the region are its generally open-hearted and friendly people. The trek can begin in Jumla (over an hours flight from Kathmandu) or from the nearer Nepalgunj. Rara is a good destination point for trekking in the west. The trail is very much “off the beaten path” and affords glimpses of culture and scenery very different from those in the rest of the country. The centerpiece of the park is the biggest lake of Nepal. Along mountain paths and a series of picturesque villages, one reaches the magnificent banks of Rara lake. The park includes Trans- Himalayan valley with high ridges covered with forest and alpine pastures.
