Khaptad National Park to Rara Lake Trek

Khaptad National Park to Rara Lake Trek

Overview

This extraordinary trek takes you from Khaptad National Park, a hidden gem in Far West Nepal, to Rara Lake, Nepal’s biggest lake.

Khaptad National Park is located in the far western region of Nepal and covers an area of 225 sq. km. The park offers a challenging yet rewarding experience unlike any other protected area in Nepal- because of its remoteness the area has been largely untouched by tourists. The national park is well known for its religious value as well as its natural beauty. Late Khaptad Baba lived here for 50 years, meditating and worshiping and finally became a renowned spiritual saint. Besides its religious importance, the park is rich for its natural beauty and stunning views of the Api and Saipal Himalayan ranges.
Features of the park include 22 patches of open grasslands, Khaptad daha (lake), 567 specis of varying flora (montane sal, pine and alder species, firs, oak, birch and rhododendron being the major species), 135 species of flowers  in the Khaptad Grasslands, 224 species of medicinal herbs, 287 bird species (impeyan pheasant, partridge, flycatcher, bulbuls, cuckoos, and eagles are some of the common species), and about 23 species of mammal (common species being barking deer, wild boar, goral, leopard, wild dog, and jackal).

The serene Rara Lake is surrounded by snowcapped mountains and thick pine forests. When there is no wind, the tranquil water is a stunning sight, reflecting the mountains and clouds.

Go into the wild and venture through thick forests, alpine landscapes, and Nepal’s countryside into remote mountain villages which have hardly seen any tourists. The perfect trek for the adventurer looking for a real wilderness experience.
