I Love Trekking Nepal presents a grand trek to Jumla and Nepal’s largest lake Rara. The trek leads north passing through beautiful untouched country side, farm villages and valleys with excellent views of the snow capped peaks of Dolpo and the Tibetan mountain ranges. One will feel as if you have entered a totally different world, as you enter the Ra Ra National Park and its beautiful surroundings, including the pristine lake RaRa.

Its scenery and unbelievable quiet is fascinating amidst its charming forest and landscapes. We will camp here for two nights in order to explore  the largest lake in Nepal.

The journey into the Jumla region and lake Rara is probably one of the most incredible and fascinating treks in all the Himalaya with its unique tranquility, blending in perfect harmony with the surrounding mountains and beautiful landscapes.

This trek starts from the hill town of Jumla in the remote north-west of Nepal.

After an enjoyable stay here, return to Jumla by an alternative route in order to give you the best of this magnificent country. We conclude our wonderful and memorable journey at Jumla with a flight back to Kathmandu via Nepalgunj.
