Bill Greer, the founder of GORP, once described Rara Lake as “a shimmering blue jewel set in a ring of snowy peaks”.
Renowned as Nepal’s biggest lake, it falls in the areas of Rara National Park spreading at an area of 10.8 square kilometers per square, encircled with pine, spruce and juniper forest.
We start the trek with flight to Jumla(over an hour flight from Kathmandu) or from nearer Nepalgunj. Following through the mountain paths and some villages we reach the bank of Rara Lake. Although more trampled than in the past, the road to Rara Lake is still without any of the comfortable services available along more popular trails. Logistically it is not an easy trek; it is hard to get to and from, and it is an organizational challenge, requiring informed guides and porters to tote the two weeks’ worth of material that will keep you warm, dry and fed. It is also tough on the bones, involving several 11,000-foot passes. However, once you overcome the obstacles, the rewards are legion: few if any other trekkers, incomparable natural splendor, “untouched” villages, and blissfully quiet surrounding ensuring an eternal peace of mind and soul.
While trekking through around Rara lake you need to be full sufficient with fooding, lodging and medical kits too, since there isn’t any accommodation facilities. We at Skyline have organized great trips in and around Rara Lake since a past decade; so while you’re travelling with us, you can put all your travelling worries at rest and only enjoy the divine beauty this heavenly place has in store for you.

Mera Peak Climbing
If you want to find another meaning of life or feel real nature power and risk sometimes:-), I wish you to visit Nepal! Its not just Everest highest peak and other regular notion we can imagine before… Its about honest people and their culture, your guts and amazing mountains. We made Gokiyo trek to Renjo la for 10 days in the end of may (weather was perfect!!!) and came back same way. All organization (tickets, transfer, hotels and etc.) of our trip was made by SkyLine company. I really was surprised about your work, guys!!! I appreciate your service and honest. Thank you so much, you are the best . See you at next year. Whole 10 mount stayed until my next trip to Nepal and I wish not to think about it, cause started to miss straightway.
