Overview

JUGAL HIMAL TREKKING - HIKING ON A PEACEFULL TREKKING TRAIL

Jugal Himal Trek takes us to Surkhet and culminates at beautiful lake Rara. Along mountain paths and a series of picturesque villages passes along the magnificent banks of the Rara lake. Rara lake, northwest of Kathmandu is an exhilarating 4 - 5 days trek from the Jumla airstrip.

Jumla is a trans - Himalayan valley with high ridges covered with forest and alpine pastures. The route is very much off the beaten tracks and offers a glimpse of cultures and scenery much different from that in the rest of Nepal. Jumla town ( 2340m) is located in a delightful valley and the villages have many archeological monuments dating back to medieval times.
