Rara Lake to Khaptad National Park Trek

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

The serene Rara Lake is surrounded by snowcapped mountains and thick pine forests. It is a stunning sight when with no wind the tranquil water reflects the mountains and clouds.

Khaptad offers you a beautiful variety of landscapes, with rolling green hills, moorlands, steep slopes and streams. 567 species of flora have been recorded in this protected area, including rhododendron forests, oak and pine forests. From the park you can see the Api and Saipal Himalayan ranges.

Khaptad is great for spotting wildlife and birds, with 23 species of mammals and 287 types of birds. Mammal species symbolic of the park are leopard, Himalayan black bear, wild dog and musk deer. Bird species include the beautiful Impeyan pheasant (danphe; Nepal’s national bird), Peregrin falcon, the white rumped vulture and many types of partridges, flycatchers, bulbuls, cuckoos and eagles.

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