Trip Overview

The Jumla–Rara Lake trek takes place in the most rural area of Nepal, Karnali province in far west Nepal. Trekking through the diverse landscape from Jumla to Rara is an adventure as well as a beautiful journey. This remote mountain region is home to generous people of different ethnic groups such as Chhetri, Magar, Brahmin, Lamas, etc. practicing both Hindu and Buddhist religions. Jumla is also popular for its organic products like apples and it is the highest place in Nepal where you can find cultivation of rice.  Jumla was a popular kingdom in the history of western Nepal where the origin of the Khas language is based. There is still archaeological evidence in Sinja Valley, ruled by the Malla (Khasa) dynasty between the 12th and 14th centuries. The Rara Lake is known for Mahendra Taal in Nepali, the largest lake situated in Rara National Park, home to more than 214 species of birds, wildlife, and mainly pine forests. We can see the Chuchemara Peak, Malika Kand, and Ruma Kand from the Lake.
