Rara is the best destination point for trekking in the west. The Rara trekking route wills thus give you a very pure trekking experience on self-sufficiency, secluded trails, and nature at its beat. The trek to Rara Lake is moderate but it will be a lifetime experience. The trail of Ra lake trekking 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 attraction of this trekking is that you will have the chance to explore the beautiful Rara lake and its surrounded alpine meadows and forest and visit nearby Rara National Parks, adjoined with the lake.

The trek to Rara Lake begins with a flight from Nepalgunj to Jumla, from where it is a 2-3 days hike to reach Rara Lake. The trek leads through the remote countryside toward the Tibetan border.  A journey into the Jumla region and the beautiful Rara Lake is probably one of the most fascinating treks in the Himalaya undisturbed by hordes of trekkers as one finds on other trek routes.
