Rara Trek is located in the western part of the country, Jumla and Rara lie in the remote Karnali region, northwest of Kathmandu. The Rara 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 thunderstorms, the summer season is ideal for trekking. Winter is cold, but the autumn season trekking is rewarded with a profusion of alpine flowers.
The trail is very much off the beaten path and affords glimpses of culture and scenery very different from those in the rest of the country. The centerpiece of the park is the biggest lake in Nepal. Along mountain paths and a series of picturesque villages, one reaches the magnificent banks of Rara Lake. The park includes Trans- Himalayan valley with high ridges covered with forest and alpine pastures. Being among the local people with their distinctive culture and traditions gives the visitor a unique experience and makes for a wonderful holiday. The primitive people give the trekker a look backward and a chance to reflect on his own modern society and development.
The great high mountains scenery enchants and fascinates as always. Like most of Nepal, Rara National Park is a naturalist’s dream. Animals like the gaur, serow, musk deer, yellow-throated martin, and a wide variety of birds such as the Impeyan Pheasant, Kalij, and Dove are ever-present.

We did the 12-day itinerary trekking to Everest Base Camp. We booked it all from England and communicated with the owner Hari via email. Such a nice family that owns and runs this business. Very friendly and welcoming. We had loads of cups of tea with them in their shop in Thamel before and after our trek.
