Far West Nepal, Rara Lake Trek

The far western end of Nepal is rarely visited. Beautiful yet relatively unknown it contains the tree –mile long Rara Lake, the largest lake in Nepal, lying 240 miles west of Kathmandu. It’s National park established in 1975 by the King of Nepal and just to the north lie the Kanjiroba mountains. Firstly we fly to Jumla, a flight that will provide views of some of the world’s greatest mountains. Then we begin our 5 day trek to Rara, passing through Sinja, the one time winter capital of the ancient Kingdom of Malla, and finally crossing a pass of 12500ft / 3800m before dropping down to the shores of the deep blue lake. After a rest day on the shores of the lake, we then follow a different trail back to Jumla and end a delightful trek in a beautiful and un spoilt  mountain region.
