To Endeavour Rara Lake Trekking is to discover what lies in the far western region in Nepal, which is home to the highest and biggest lake in Nepal, which showcases nestled snow-capped mountains and which leads you through an accessible forest. This trek puts you to walk in a solitary path, wherein you follow the off-the-beaten trail and enjoy the gifts of nature in a full swing; above all, you experience a variety of nature. All these that you see and where you walk, take place in the Rara National Park, a habitual place for musk deer, Himalayan black bear, leopard, Himalayan goral, Red Panda, and “Danfe” Besides this, the park also abounds with coniferous trees, such as pine, juniper, and spruce.

As you look at these mountains, you will be inspired by their splendid beauties to conquer them. The neighboring area of the lake is composed of one thousand and seventy-four species of flowers and is home to fifty-one species of mammals and two hundred fourteen species of birds. The mountain circles the lake; the lake that is surrounded by mountains is not only beautiful but also unique. The journey to Rara Lake Trekking also means a journey to the region of the medicinal plants.
The founder of the Great Outdoors Recreation Pages, Bill Greer has described the Rara Lake as “a shimmering blue jewel set in a ring of snowy peaks”.
