Trip Description - Rara Lake Trek

Rara Lake Trek is the most beautiful lake trekking among other lake treks in Nepal. A lonely trekking trail heads off to the Rara Lake, the highest lake in the world that has been nicknamed by the Nepalese as the Queen of Lakes and that lies in one of the finest parks in Nepal. The trekking trail goes up and down, and from a ridge, it offers a spectacular panorama of mountains during the trek. Most of the time, the trail runs by the river and streams, and it takes us to the meadows and pine forest, including birch. The presence of snow capped mountains infuses a sense of joy in the hearts of lone trekkers. The locals are confused as to why the natural beauty spot is called a remote area.

They do not consider their beautiful motherland remote. Rara National Park is located in the north-western highlands of Nepal in Karna province. The park was gazetted in 1976 to conserve the unique beauty of Lake Rara. It is protected the representative flora and fauna of the Humla-Jumla region in Karnali province. The Rara National Park is Nepal’s smallest protected area. It is comprising an area of 106 sq. km.There were two villages Rara and Chhapru within the Rara National Park. The residents of the two villages were resettled in Banke district in Tarai, outside the Rara National Park.

Accommodation offered during the trip

The accommodation we use may vary depending on our package travel and the range of travel destinations. Before or after the trip you can book comfortable hotels in cities like Kathmandu and Pokhara for your stay. If you book a tea house trekking trip, we will provide a small two-bed room for sharing in the hill lodges which is a basic facility but very clean.

Now, better-equipped lodges are also available in Annapurna and Everest areas but we recommend trekkers to use accommodation above 3500 meters where clean rooms and clean food are readily available. Sometimes a level of flexibility may be required when trekking in remote mountain areas. We believe that you will complete your vacation without any problems and have the trip of a lifetime. If you book camping/trekking, our camping team will manage a comfortable camping site by the river where possible.

There will usually be a dedicated support team on the trip to move luggage and equipment, set up camp, and prepare your food. You will find more detailed information about travel accommodation which is mentioned separately in the lodging section of each vacation package page.

However, you can expect excellent service and high quality in any budget range you choose. You can learn more about different types of travel and their features and the proposed travel price by contacting us directly where we will be very pleased to answer your questions. We always try to choose comfortable accommodation with local character reflecting the best value based on twin share accommodation.

When you book a trip, unless you request a private single room, we will arrange for you to share a twin bed room with a person of the same gender. If you request a private single room, you will need to pay a single room supplementary fee. Please note that during the trek, if the destination is 4000 meters above sea level, only dormitory accommodation with private beds will be available. On trekking trips we try our best but do not promise guaranteed room options. For most of our camping trips, we supply branded two-person tents, including groundsheets.

Mess tent, kitchen tent, toilet tent, service plates, bowls, and all necessities are provided. Members of the mountaineering travel group are requested to manage according to the options given on the website.
