Rara to Khaptad National Park trek is an unusual route in far western region on Nepal brings you to Rara Lake, Nepal’s biggest lake, to Khaptad National Park, a hidden paradise. The serenely beautiful Rara Lake is surrounded by snow-capped mountains and thick pine forests. It is a stunning sight, especially on a still day when the mountains and clouds reflect in the tranquil waters.

This beautiful trek rewards visitors a beautiful diversity 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.

Experience wild and venture throughout dense forests, alpine landscapes and isolated mountain villages which have seen very few tourists. This is a wonderful trek for the explorer keens looking for a real wilderness experience. The accommodation on this trek is a mix of camping and basic teahouses. In the winter season please confirm with us if teahouses are open.


"Trek through the wild and wilderness trail does not cater all the facilities like Everest and Annapurna Region Treks- Khaptad Rara Jumla trek is one of the best treks to those trekkers who prefer off beat treks, extremely unique culture, peaceful wilderness and the best of nature.”
