Rara Lake, Nepal’s largest lake situated in western Nepal at 3062m is beautiful and tranquil. This scenic high altitude lake is surrounded by alpine meadows and forests of juniper, pine and spruce, and in the background you can view the magnificent snow capped mountains of the Himalayas. Rara Lake trek offers beautiful scenery, superb experiences of nature and the culture of this region. It is a good choice if you are a bird watcher or desire something close to wilderness solitude.
The Nar and Phu valleys are newly opened spectacular regions of ethnically-Tibetan inhabitants. This trek is ideal for those of you that think you have 'trekked it all'. This is a trek that combines high peaks and passes, glaciers, remote villages, narrow canyons, lovely forests, amazing rock formations, yaks, gompas and unique Himalayan cultures.
Trekking the standard Annapurna Circuit, the bridge leading over the Marsyangdi River to the steep portals of the Nar Phu valley system is easily missed.
