Danphe Lek | Exploring Jumla | EP 1
Today we spend the day exploring Rara Lake. Rara is the largest lake in Nepal. The lake is also popular as Mahendra Taal. Enjoy boating in the lake and admire the beautiful peaks in the surroundings such as Chuchemara Peak, Ruma Kand Peak, and Malika Kand Peak. After boating, spend some time exploring nearby places. Overnight in a tent.
Leaving Sinja Khola and following the trail along the Ghatta Khola amid the unparallel beauty of nature, we will make our way to the border of Rara National Park. The indirect route winds up into terraced farmland and beautiful valleys. Soon, we find ourselves within the territory of Rara Lake National Park as we come across primitive flour mills and police posts along the way. Rara Lake National Park houses a very unique and rich ecosystem. We can spend half an hour exploring the park's beauty or doing whatever we like. Rara National Park was established in 1976 and is the country's smallest national park. With the sapphire Rara Lake being the park's main feature, Rara National Park's establishment protects the lake from sedimentation and preserves the lake's wildlife. The park ranges in elevation from 2,800 m (9,200 ft) to 4,039 m (13,251 ft) at the Chuchemara Peak on the southern side of Rara Lake. On the northern side, the peaks of Ruma Kand and the Malika Kand frame the alpine freshwater lake. Rara National Park is managed by the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation and protected with the assistance of the Nepal Army. We will spend the night in Gorosingha. Overnight stay at the tented camp. Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner are included.
Following the trail gently sloping upwards, we march towards Jumla. Tall birch trees lead to the Khali Lagna and the Danphe Lekh. We can have the most spectacular views of the mountain ridges to the south and Jumla below from the ridge. Further on, we will descend steeply to the first night's campsite. Utmost caution is required while trekking along this trail because of its treacherous route. We then follow the same route back to Jumla. After reaching Jumla, we can spend our afternoon exploring the busy market town or simply pursuing whatever we feel like doing here. Jumla is one of the 75 districts in the mid-western hills of Nepal, where rice cultivation ranges from 2,400 to 3,050 meters in altitude- the highest elevation in the world. The highest elevation at 3,050 meters is Chhumjul of Jumla, a record altitude where rice is cultivated. Jumli Marshi, a Japonica variety of indigenous rice having the cold tolerant gene, has probably been cultivated here since 1,300 years ago on the bank of the Tila River. The Tila Valley and the Sinja Khola Valley are covered with paddy fields growing the "Kali Marshi" rice variety. This unique red rice is sought after for its exceptional taste. Overnight stay at the tented camp. Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner are included.
