This camping adventure leads you into the heartland of an ancient Nepali culture, around the “Queen of Lakes” – Rara Lake, one of the highest in Nepal. The local Thakuri community believe that a god fired his arrow, opening the passage of the lake. Their descendants, in partnership with Dolma Ecotourism, have now opened this passage for guests.
One of the best Trekking routes in Nepal
This trek through the remote wilderness of western Nepal offers a superb experience of nature and a visit to Rara Lake, Nepal’s Largest Lake at 3062 meters. Beginning the trek from the mountain airstrip of Jumla after flying from Kathmandu via Nepalgunj, the trail passes through green countryside.
Jumla – Rara Lake Trek throughout caters unusual glimpses of a culture and scenery quite different from that found elsewhere in Nepal and eventually culminates to the Rara Lake inside Rara National Park.
This beautiful high altitude lake is surrounded by alpine meadows and forests of pine, juniper and spruce, whilst in the background you can view the magnificent snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas.
With Dolma Tours you will get to experience the cultural aspect of Rara and Jumla. The ancient way of living with preserved nature, you are sure to have a divine time there.
