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.

Useful Information

Arrival:

You will be met at the airport by our representative; holding a play card with your name on it, in front of the arrival gate. After the greeting, you will be transferred to the Hotel, where rooms have been booked for you. In the evening, our trekking guide gives you a trip briefing about transportation, day-to-day lifestyle, difficulty, altitude sickness, accommodation, mountains, culture, food, etc.

Equipment List:

This is a guideline for the gear that is suggested during the trekking. You may consider bringing it with you when you are doing a teahouse or Camping (Tent) trek with us; Most of the gear can be purchased or hired in Kathmandu at reasonable prices.

The following basic equipment checks list help you with your packing.15 kg (33 lbs) is the maximum weight limit for the duffel bag plus your hand luggage for Domestic flights. If you have excess luggage, you have to pay extra money as per airline rules. Per client, 12 to 14 kg weight is limited on the trek.

Visa:

You can get your Nepal visa either at the Tribhuvan International airport in Kathmandu or any land border when you arrive in Nepal or leave home.

Temperatures & Clothing:

Spring and autumn are the main trekking season in Nepal. During the spring season (March-May) is usually warm (T-shirt, sandals, light pants or skirts) in the day in Kathmandu and in autumn it is a bit chilly (light fleece or windproof top) in the afternoon.

In the afternoon for a fleece, sweater, or light Jacket, and evening, cold enough that you can wear a light down Jacket, if you’re sitting outside in the much colder winter, you won’t leave the hotel without your down jacket. It’s not snowing in Kathmandu; leave your snow boots behind. Keens or lightweight sports shoes, sandals great for wandering around Kathmandu and for trekking in lower altitudes

Trekking is a mixed bag of temperatures. LAYERS are the key as hot can change quickly to freezing crossing the passes, and snowfalls are common. We often have some rain below 3000 meters in the spring and early autumn. It can rain hard in the summer. Have a wide range of layer-able trekking clothes for summer to winter temperatures. Keep a lightweight down jacket or windproof jacket with you at all times, available inexpensively in Kathmandu. A lightweight rain poncho for trekking is recommended in spring and summer, Be prepared; Check our GEAR LIST for all details on gear, shoes, clothing, electronics and medicine for the trek.

There are lots of real gear shops (North Face, Mountain Hardware, Marmot, Sherpa Gear) and of course many fake ones in Kathmandu, so if you don’t think you have the right gear starting the trip it will be easy to pick up stuff once in Kathmandu. We provide sleeping bags, duffel bags, and down Jackets, especially for the camping trek and peak climbing. If you are doing a tea house trek you can buy or hire (rent) trekking gear in Kathmandu at a reasonable price.

Dress conservatively in Kathmandu and on the trail as a rule. Shorts are okay if they aren’t too short; a mini-skirt isn’t recommended. Sleeveless t-shirts are fine, but perhaps avoid tank- tops on the trail. Super tight doesn’t go over so well with the village elders.

Important Documents:

Hotel / Accommodations:

We provide accommodation in a standard 3*star hotel in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Nepalgung, and Lumbini as well as Bhutan, Tibet, and India Tour as per itinerary and stay in the best available guesthouse in the mountains during the trek. You may have to share a bed with a companion during the mountainous trip. But if you need, a single supplement you have to pay extra yourself.

Food:

You will be served with bed and breakfast during your stay in Kathmandu. All other meals Lunch and Dinner will be paid for clients themselves but Himalayan High Path Adventure provides welcome dinner before the trek. We provide 3 meals (breakfast, Lunch, dinner) during the trek. 

When you are on the trip, you will get the menu and choose a food that you like to have but we suggest not to have oily foods or nonvegetarian (meat is not fresh) foods. Sometimes we prefer to eat local food such as Dal Bhat (Lentil soup and rice), noodles, Tibetan bread made of buckwheat, spaghetti, different types of soup fried potato, and many more.

Best time to travel:

The best time for trekking in Nepal is either in the spring season (March to May) or in autumn (September to November). It offers magnificent views in these two seasons. Trekking is also possible in other seasons despite having extremely cold weather, climate, and temperatures which may not suit, and we do not guarantee to see the panoramic views.

Points to consider:

The mountain flight and Kathmandu /Lukla / Kathmandu flight may be delayed depending on the weather conditions. It is very likely to delay the flights from one to two hours until the next day. In case you miss the scheduled flight due to the weather conditions, you will have to wait or you may pay US$ 600 for an emergency helicopter lift. So, it would be better if you keep a few days more in reserve to cope with such conditions. Depending on the time and situation concerning your safety and security, your Guide may change the itinerary in Mutual understanding.

Tips for staff:

A tip is expected, so we recommend at least $ 10 – $15 per client/per day tips for the staff end of the trekking. Please bring Nepali currency (NPR) with you on the trek for your expenses (see cost includes/excludes section) and for tips. It’s nice to buy the drinks for the staff and the group will celebrate the last day party in the night.
