So after a long plannning we decided to head for rara… In a group of seven.. We took night bus from kalanki to surkhet at nrs 1200 … So sad the bus dint depart at time proposed n we ended up at surkhet at mid day.. Around 2 pm… Then we took a bus to gotijiula.. (a better option would have been a bus to gamdia directly since from there it would have been 4 hrs trek to rara) second night we rested at patale khola… The system here is quite different.. They donot charge for room but only for food (nepali thali for nrs. 120-180)..however the room is bad.. You might also get some mite bites.. Day third spent on bus… All the way from kalikot to nagma … The road here departs for jumla and mugu.. We took the road to mugu.. And reached gotijiula and spent our third night… Next morning we took a bus to talcha airport at nrs. 15000, more the pple less the share… We met a local at bus (the locals have a different tone… They speak fast and they speak asudha nepali) and as advised we dropped down at jhyarre and walked uphill for around 1.5 hrs.. Then we reaches sallari from where we entered rara national park premises.. Walked our way into the jungle for 45 minutes.. Then we entered rara lake premise… WOW.. the first view of rara was simply WOW… i was awestruck… So big.. So calm.. So clear… So silent… So elegant… All the troubles we had was worth it… We stayed at danfe hotel for two nights.. Nrs. 1500 per night.. An average hotel… Also has tents… And you can also settle your own tent… The tea there os made from jadibutis… A souvenir… Next day we headed to murma top 3 hrs uphill from where we saw the rara lake as a whole… Rara is 10.8 sq km.. 167 m deep… Largest lake of nepal… Beautiful indeed… We relaxed there ..
