Rara Lake Trek

Rara Lake is the largest lake of Nepal, situated in Mugu district in the far western region of Nepal. It takes around 3 to 4 days of walking to reach Rara from Jumla.
The surface is around 8 square kilometer and the perimeter 9 kilometer. The length of the lake is 5 kilometers and it is 2 kilometers wide, the altitude around 3060 meter and the max. depth is 167 meter. Trekking in Rara Lake offers the best scenery on the earth. The trail is very much "off the beaten path" and affords glimpses of the distinct culture of the local people.
The people are a mix of ethnic groups, such as the Magar, Gurung and hill people of Hindu caste origin. The lake itself is perched on a high shelf at 2,980 meters and is protected by Rara National Park, which covers an area of 106 sq. kilometers. It is a good opportunity to see wildlife such as musk deer, leopards, ghoral, tahr, Himalayan black bear, and the rare red panda inside the park. The park is also a birdwatcher's delight, especially during November and April when many species of birds visit during their seasonal migration.
