Rara Lake Jumla Trekking

Trip Description

Rara Lake Jumla Trekking takes you to up into the high altitude lake area of Rara, which combines the beauty of spruce and pine forest with spectacular views of the surrounding hills and mountains. This is Nepal’s largest lake, which houses otters and many fish species. This is one of the best treks to view Nepal’s wildlife including the Himalayan bear. This area is one of the least inhabited trekking routes, which will give you a feel for the natural environment of Nepal. Length of trip Jumla – Simikot 12 days Average hiking per day 4-5 hrs highest elevation gained 3700 m.

Pristine Rara Lake, known as the Queen of Lakes, is the largest lake in Nepal. Surrounded by juniper and spruce forests of Rara Lake National Park in the western part of the country, it is a high altitude lake at 9,834 feet (2,980 m). The trekking route is not heavily traveled, but it passes through a region that affords cultural interactions and scenery quite different from the rest of Nepal. You may meet followers of Hinduism as well as immigrant Tibetan families.

Trekking in this area involves a great deal of up-and-down walking through forests and isolated villages. You remain mostly at lower elevations, reaching a high elevation of 12,243 feet (3,710 m) at Danfe pass.

You can spend two days at Baridiya National Park, where you can take an elephant-back safari through the lush jungle. Your accommodations are well-equipped tents.
