Jumla Rara Trekking

Rara Lake lies in the remote far north west of Nepal. Surrounded by verdant alpine meadows and steep, densely forested ridges abundant with wildlife, the lake is stunningly beautiful, with unbelievable tranquillity, a paradise untouched. The region around Jumla and Rara Lake is still relatively unexplored.

After a short flight from Nepalgunj to Jumla, our trek begins by climbing gradually through forests of mixed oak, conifer, pine, broad-leafed chestnut, white birch and rhododendron. We cross the lush alpine meadows with herds of sheep and goats. Rara is Nepal's largest lake and lies at an altitude of 3050 metres. An outstanding snow-capped panorama of Dolpo and the Tibetan mountains is seen across the deep clear waters of the lake. The National Park contains numerous species of birds and animals. The final four days of the trek offers superb views over Mugu, the southern mountains of Humla, and the border ranges of Tibet. The trail takes us through grassy alpine pastures and remote villages, before descending steeply off the second pass to Jumla. From here we fly back to Kathmandu via Nepalgunj.
