Rara Trek

Jumla and Rara lies in the remote Karnali zone in the north-west of Nepal. The region is made-up of long ridges covered with temperate forests and alpine pastures enclosing high valleys. Summer rainfall is low, but winter snow can be heavy and persistent. Since the region is fairly high and free from monsoon thunder-storms, the summer season is ideal for trekking. Winters are cold, but in the autumn season, trekking is rewarded with a profusion of alpine flowers.

It is a short, pleasant trek with fine views to the north. From Dhotu, we traverse a steep north- facing slope and cross a series of fields down to a small stream. Crossing the bridge, we climb up to the hamlet of Jhari (2500m). From Jhari, we climb steadily up a ridge to a low saddle, from which there are fine views of the beautiful Rara Lake. From here, it is a pleasant descent to the meadows on the south side of the lake. The former village site of Rara (3040m) is two hours walk along the western bank of the lake. Designated a National Park in 1975, Rara boasts an abundance of wildlife, including aquatic birds and rich forest around its large lake at a height of 2980 meters. This is an ideal place to relax for a day or two.
