Rara lake trek is a remote wilderness of western Nepal offers a superb experience of nature and a visit to Rara Lake, Nepal's largest Lake at 3062m. Beginning the trek from the mountain airstrip of Jumla after flying from Kathmandu via Nepalgunj, the trail passes through green countryside which provides unusual glimpses of a culture and scenery quite different from that found elsewhere in Nepal and which eventually culminates to the Rara Lake National Park.
