Rara Lake is one of the most beautiful sites in Nepal. This stunning deep blue lake, situated in North Western part of Nepal, stands at 2,990 meters above sea level and offers magnificent views of the Himalayan landscape. The Lake lies in the Rara National Park which is home to a diverse species of flowers, mammals, and birds,
It takes about 3 days of driving to reach the Lake from Kathmandu passing through Surkhet, Kalikot, and Gamghadi. The Rara lake became a lot more accessible to tourists after the completion of the SurkhetJumla Section of Karnali Highway.
The best part of Rara, other than its stunning beauty and scenery, is that it’s one of the less traveled and well-preserved parts of Nepal.
There are several things one can see during Kathmandu to Rara Lake Tour such as the Rara National Park, isolated and off the beaten trekking routes, the gorgeous mountainous landscape, ponds, and sighting of rare animals. Rara National Park is home to some of rarest creatures such as the Himalayan Black Bear, Red Panda, Ghorals, and the elusive Black Panther.
Other highlights of the trip include the Karnali River, Chuchemara Peak (4,039m) and the Mugu Karnali Gorge.
