Rara Lake Trek is a very beautiful & completely off the beaten track. This trek takes you to discover the northwest of Nepal bordering Dolpo and its population’s still very traditional lifestyle. The Rara area is intact and preserved by the Rara National Park, created in 1967, is the smallest park in Nepal. However, Rara Lake, perched at 3000 meters, is the largest lake in Nepal with its 10.8KM.it is the main attraction of the park. If you are looking for a trip to the wild and lonely Nepal, Trekking Rara Lake is the perfect choice. Finally, if the height scares you, this circuit never goes above 4000 meters, the maximum point being reached 3700 meters. As this is a program in an isolated area, about 370km from Kathmandu, it is necessary to provide a bivouac logistics to frame this trek.
