Rara Lake Trekking

Rara Lake Trekking: is in western Nepal, second to only the Kathmandu valley in terms of scenic grandeur and history. This remote land consists of open valleys and long ridges, clothes in temprerate forests and alpine meadows. Jumla was once a great kingdom of the Khas Malla dynasty with its territories extending from the Kali Gandaki to Kumaon ( now India) and from the Terai to Taklakhar ( now Tibet). The summer capital Jumla was at Sinja and the winter capital at Dullu. The remnants of this greatness are still evident in Jumla in the form of sculptured temples, stones pillars and fold songs.
