Magnificent Rara Lake has seen as close to 5,000 tourists since early October according to the police and local entrepreneurs
Hidden away in the Himalayas, surrounded by sparkling snow-capped mountains and emerald green forests lies Rara Lake, the largest freshwater lake in all of Nepal. Mugu-based Rara Lake which is situated in an altitude of 2,972 mt from sea level has become a trekker’s paradise.
Number of tourists coming here to enjoy the incredible beauty of the lake has abruptly gone up. The lake is stretched over 10-km in length from Mugu headquarters, Gamgadi and three-kilometre in breadth with 167 mt depth. Number of people visiting the Rara Lake has swiftly increased especially following the celebration of Dashain. Locals said the vehicles of tourists visiting Rara in the particular season are seen high in number.
The mosaic Rara Lake changes its colour three times a day. Sometimes it is seen with blue colour, sometimes brown, purple and crimson colours. The splendid view of the colorful Rara mixed with the shade of Sinje and Kanjirowa Mountains leaves a lifetime memory for those who visit here.
As many as 5,000 people had visited Rara and Sinja since Dashain celebrations, as informed by the police post at Gothijewla. Entrepreneurs also marked the increasing flow of tourists in the Sinja area, Nagma bazaar located along the border of Jumla and Kalikot and Rara Lake and Khalanga of Jumla in the season.
