The Rara Lake is called the “queen of lakes” because she lies majestically high in the throne of hills with the Himalayas as her bejeweled crown. Travellers say that you can experience heaven on earth at this place. At 3010 meters above the sea, the Rara Lake is a formidable place to be. It is the largest and deepest freshwater lake in Nepal formed by Himalayan glacier. The lake is surrounded by forests and mountain peaks which make it look like a place straight out of myths. You will have to trek amid beautiful landscape for five days to reach there and you get to spend a two nights at the lakeside. Trekking along several rivers, passing through villages and climbing hills make the trip even more interesting. Come with us to Rara lake trek to enjoy  magnificent nature together.

  • You will trek in rocky landscape so trekking here is not straightforward. Be prepared to trek right after breakfast till lunch and again till the evening and then some. But our guides will help you and you can complete this tour with little bit of lower body strength and plenty of determination.
  • Please make sure you take a travel insurance at home before arriving here. It is mandatory and you cannot take it in Nepal. Your insurance agent will know which insurance plan suits your travel.
  • It is advisable that you free up a few days before and after your trip schedule. For reasons beyond our control like flight delays, accidents and natural hazards, the itinerary may have to be altered.
  • For the Nepalgunj-Juphal flight, flights are always scheduled early in the morning in this region because high winds in the ThuloBheri Valley begin around 10 am, making later flights impossible.
  • Please inform us and our guides if you have any medical condition that might affect your trip. Please consult your doctor beforehand for any precautions you need to take and always carry medicines if you need them. However, our guides and local support staff have been trained in basic medical intervention and your travel insurance covers any emergency rescue or evacuation.
  • You may decide to alter your itinerary to some degree as long as there are no time constraints and everyone consents, if you are travelling in a group. Talk to us before embarking on the trip or you may also talk to our guides to see if we can arrange something. One thing we have learned from mountaineering all these years is however good you plan your journey, there are bound to be some improvisations to make our experience richer.
