Our Rara Lake Tour by Road differs from the other Rara Lake tours because it is done completely by jeep/bus rather than by air. This way, you are able to experience more of the country and see more scenery along the way.
The Rara Lake Tour commences from Kathmandu and takes you into several UNESCO World Heritage Sites before seeing you off at Tribhuvan International Airport. Swoyambunath, also known as ‘Monkey Temple,’ is full of symbolism and is one of the oldest religious sites in Nepal. The Buddhist temple offers an incredible view of Kathmandu. Boudhanath Stupa is one of the largest Buddhist shrines in the world. We’ll see monks and devotees circumnavigating the stupa. Pasupatinath Temple is the most famous Hindu temple in the country. You can see sadhus (holy men) meditating, pilgrims bathing, and bodies being cremated on the banks of the Bagmati River. The day after our tour, we fly to Nepalgunj, and then next day to Talcha, where we begin our short trek to Rara Lake, a most marvelous place.
