A natural miracle in the remote areas of Nepal can only be the beautiful Rara Lake. With its deep turquoise blue waters this lake is absolutely fabulous to see. A fast way to reach the lake would be by private jeep. And make an adventure to the beautiful Rara Lake. Overnighting at the Lake gives you a great opportunity to stroll around the edges and see the moon lit up the lake at night.
The Rara Lake by Jeep tour starts with a scenic drive towards Kohalpur, the views are absolutely amazing and we can stop at various points to make memorable photos. The next day we drive to Manma the headquarters of the Kalikot district. On our third day we head for our destination RaraLake. We spent the next day exploring around Rara Lake and the Rara region. After this amazing day we drive back towards Kathmandu during the next day. We basically head back in reverse as we came and the route brings back nostalgic memories.
At the seventh day we reach back in Kathmandu and end this beautiful tour.
