Rara Lake is the biggest lake of Nepal. It lies in the Mugu District, Karnali Zone in Western part of Nepal. This area is protected by Rara National Park. The lake is also known as Mahendra Daha, named after the late king Mahendra of Nepal. Rara Lake, being surrounded by Rara National Park, has unique floral and faunal importance with rare and vulnerable species. The main occupation of the people living around the area is agriculture. People also rear goats and extract medicinal herbs and sell them for their living. Thakur society is dominant in the community. Thakur Baba’s Temple is situated in the southeast corner of the lake.
Rara Lake has been a popular destination for visitors with a very rough route in Western Nepal for trekkers. The glimpse of culture and scenery on the way is quite different from the rest of Nepal. Situated in high altitude, you can find the lake surrounded by Rara National Park with pine, spruce and juniper forest. The view of snow capped Himalayan Peaks enhances the attraction of trekkers. The trek begins with flight to Jumla (over an hour flight from Kathmandu) or from nearer Nepalgunj. Going along the mountain path and some village’s one can reach the bank of Rara Lake.
