Rara Lake

Mugu, Nepal

Rara taal is the biggest lake situated within the borders of Nepal, which lies at an altitude of 2,990 m above sea level and covers an area of 10.8 square kilometers. The lake is surrounded by Rara National Park on all sides, the park was established in 1976 to preserve the beauty of the lake and protect the unique floral and faunal importance of the rare and vulnerable species found around the lake.

There are paddle boats available, no motorboats here, and a morning ride is like gliding along a mirror. Talk to the local people about riding horse, saddles provided and guides if you need. There is a trail all the way around the lake that is lovely, and going away from the lake are open pastures if you want to take it a little faster.
