Jumla Rara Lake Trek - 15 Days

Jumla is a trans-Himalayan valley with high ridges covered with forests and alpine pastures. Rara Lake lies in the remote far northwest of Nepal. Rara is Nepal's largest lake and lies at an altitude of 3050 meters. An outstanding snowcapped panorama of Dolpo and Tibetan mountains overshadows the scene across the deep clear waters of the lake are the attractions of this Jumla Rara Lake Trek.

From Jumla, one can trek along the broad valley of Tila river, 18 kilometers west of Litakot, where there is a hot water spring at Tatopani. Another interesting trek takes one 20 kilometers east to Gothichaur (2,750 m), a circular bowl of grassy slopes and pine forests. Jumla Rara Lake trek is one of the popular treks in western Nepal.
