Rara Lake is one of the most beautiful places where you can rest your soul away from cityscapes and polluted crowded hearts. The Rara Lake trek is one of the most unique and fascinating trekking adventures of all, one that radiates more at connecting with the forests and Lakeland of Nepal rather than the more common trekking value of steep trails through the majestic mountains. Less congested and largely raw, the trek winds peacefully through meadows of juniper, spruce, and pine, with the ever-present summits of the Himalayas adorning the view to one side and the pristine azure waters of Rara Lake adding their pensive gifts on the other.
Sprawling at an elevation of 2,990m, Rara Lake, sometimes also introduced as Mahendra Taal, is the biggest lake in Nepal, embracing an area over 10 sq. km and recorded to be 167 m in depth. Anchored in Rara National Park, the area around the lake is chiefly pine forest and is home to 214 species of birds, including an ample number of seasonal birds. It is a pleasing destination for bird watching enthusiasts who can anticipate seeing waterfowl, coot’s common teal, blood pheasants, and the Danfe, the national bird of Nepal. Other animals that live in this area cover musk deer, Himalayan black bear, red panda, and jackals, among others.
Established in 1979, Rara National Park is named for the scenically excellent lake at its core, the largest in Nepal, whose crystalline waters give the smoothness. Wrapped in wide expanses of juniper forests and with the snow-laden summits of the Himalayas as a backdrop for the eternities, the park shields not only the lake’s elegance and grace but also acts as an essential preserve for countless of central Himalaya’s assorted flora and fauna. It presents an enjoyable opportunity to explore a picturesque and serene region that resembles one of Maxfield Parrish’s impossibly artistic and mystical paintings that come to life.
The mountain rings the lake; the lake that is inundated by mountains is not only elegant but also unique. The trip to Rara Lake Trek also means a trip to the region of the medicinal plants. The patron of the Great Outdoors Recreation Pages, Bill Greer has expressed the Rara Lake as “a shimmering blue jewel set in a ring of snowy peaks’ ‘.
The trekking tracks that are ‘off the beaten trail’ in nature has the qualities of passing the Ghurchi Lagna Pass at 3450m and a lot of ridges at 3000 m respectively and directs to the eccentric villages, where the life of the people exists not only at a high elevation but is radically different from yours… Ancient. Rara Lake Trek exposes the salutary of the above and beyond of the harder trekking tracks, where you will be engulfed by the beauties of the sublime nature, you have chosen to travel from your country. This trek is free from crowds and cityscapes and it ends from where it originated.
Aside from the area encompassing the lake, the hike passes through very desolate panoramas as it is in the rain-shadow of the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna chains. Glimpses of Chucchemara Peak, Ruma Kand, and Malika Kand are on display from nearby the lake area. This is a fascinating trek into an area that is not yet visited by many tourists. The trails are at comparatively low altitudes and a moderate level of health is precise to accomplish this trek. Having said that, this is the Himalayas so paths go up and down, and up and down!
