About Rara Lake Trek

Rara Lake Trek Nepal has unlimited magnificent places for the trekking or touring activities renowned around the globe. Apart from usual world-famous destinations like the Everest region, Manaslu region, Langtang region, Annapurna region, and Mustang region, 
Rara Lake Trek is well preserved natural wonder of Nepal which features the boundless adventure, culture and panoramic geographical landscape. It is the largest lake of Nepal having the pure and pristine fresh blue water nature reservoir surrounded by the green lush forests of pine and rhododendron in the green pastured hills overlooking the lofty snow covered mountains. The region is very remote and less traveled by the trekkers or explorers which help the trekkers to have tranquility and peace while roaming around this remote Western region of Nepal. The major exciting component of this trekking in Nepal is Rara Lake itself. This remote land is hard for the accessibility purpose however Beyond The Limit Treks have an alternative route to Rara via Helicopter tour in Nepal or the usual long days trekking package. The opportunity to explore the diversified Rara National Park observing the endangered species of birds, animals, flora, and fauna would be the added bonus while trekking in the region. The innocent and rich cultured people of western Nepal would be the exciting factor in terms of people and their traditions. The strolling in the forest of rhododendron, juniper and pine could be full of spirituality and noteworthy to note down in your travel log as the most astonishing journey of a lifetime. The best season for the trekking in Rara Lake is during summer rather in winter because in winter the trail is covered with the bulk of snow making it hard to navigate. Trek in this virgin land of Nepal and awaken your spirituality.
Beyond the Limits Treks and Expedition offers the unique small group adventure trekking package under the off the beaten trekking trail of Nepal in competitive price served with impeccable hospitality; therefore book your trekking with us to explore the land of enchanted lakes and mountainous hilly terrain of western Nepal.
