Rara Lake Trek

Rara, also called Mahendra Lake is the largest lake of Nepal located in the Mid West region in Mugu District. The lake is one of the most important fresh water natural reservoirs not only in Nepal but in whole Asia. Rara Lake is conserved within the boundaries of Rara National Park (1976) with a very small area of 106 sq km. The lake is truly amazing and full of mysteries due to its complex formation. At the height of 2990 meters from sea level, it is 5000m in length and 3000 meters board with the depth of 167meters. Its dark blue water adds up more beauty to its surrounding thick coniferous forest.

The trek to Rara is also quite exciting and adventurous as well, especially for those trekkers who prefer to trek in the remote area and explore the cultures of isolated villages. There is not exact route in this trekking as compared to the popular and more visited areas, this trek is simply walking through the untouched nature and environment. Trekkers can choose their own trial depending upon their will and endurance. The trial passes through very remote and isolated villages along with thick and dense forest that can easily help to get lost.
