Trip Introduction

Rara Lake lies in the remote far northwest of Nepal. Surrounded by verdant alpine meadows and steep densely forested ridges abundant with wildlife. The lake is stunningly beautiful, with unbelievably tranquility, a paradise untouched. The region around Jumla and Rara Lake is still relativrara_lake_trekely unexplored. The area gives a taste of natural wilderness and silence.

Our trek starts from Jumla, the largest upland hill town in the west Nepal. 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 goat herders. Rara is Nepal's largest lake and lies at an altitude of 3050 meters. An outstanding snowcapped panorama of Dolpo and Tibetan mountains overshadows the scene across the deep clear waters of the lake. The National park consists of Himalayan black bear, leopard, Black Panther, thar, musk deer, red panda, goral, wild boar, rhesus and languor monkeys and numerous species of birds.

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.

Our trip planner and the travel team provided us a worldclass experience for a 6 day trip to Iceland. From the initial planning stages and throughout the trip, our trip planner stayed in touch to make sure we had everything we needed. Our guide did a great job of showing us the sites and sharing information about the history and culture of Iceland. We would highly recommend this travel team to anyone who wants to experience this beautiful country and its people in a bespoke way.
