Introduction to Rara Lake Trek

The Rara Lake Trek is a trip to Nepal’s highest and biggest lake, located in the far west of Nepal. The trail crosses the lush green jungle, taking you on a journey of flora and finally to Rara Lake. In the water of Rara Lake, you can see the reflection of the majestic Himalayas. The lake is situated at an altitude of 2,990 meters and is surrounded by beautiful mountains. It is also unique, which will be one of the most beautiful things you have seen in your life.

Rara National Park was established in 1976 to preserve the beautiful lake between the park and the various plants, animals, and birds in the park. The park conserves about a thousand and fourteen species of flowers, two hundred and fourteen species of birds, and fifty-one types of mammals, along with Rara Lake. Medicinal plants are cultivated in the fertile land of this region, and those who are involved in agriculture cultivate and sell medicinal plants.

Thank you a lot for your organization about my trek. It was a superb experience; all was perfect. Karma is a very nice person and a good guide. I appreciated trekking with Odyssey (a reliable Nepal trek operator). If I come back to Nepal, I will be happy to ask you to trek with me again. I am thinking about Annapurna or the Everest trek.

Have just returned from my fourth trip to Nepal and as always Odyssey Treks organized everything superbly. We visited Makalu relatively late in the season and were rewarded with empty trails and amazing weather. Karma was as entertaining, friendly, and informative as ever along with Ang Dawa Sherpa who together made the three weeks perfect.

They also organized a few days to Helambu at short notice as I had some time spare, all done easily and professionally. Thanks for the company both and I will be back again. I cannot recommend Odyssey highly enough as a genuinely friendly, locally based company that provides not only unforgettable experiences but also great service at a very reasonable cost.
