    Rara Lake Helicopter Tour 6 days

    ‘A scenic ride to beautiful and largest lakes of Nepal’

    Rara Lake Helicopter Tour takes you flying over Nepal Far Western Himalaya range to reach beautiful and scenic Rara Lake. It’s the country’s largest and deepest lake covering an area of 10.8 sq km. Regarding the air distance, it’s located at approx. 371 km away from the capital Kathmandu.

    Due to its remoteness within Far North West of Nepal, we operate Helicopter services to make the tour easily possible and accessible. It takes a normal schedule flight of 50 minutes to land at Nepalgunj airport. And, we find some nice hotel around the city and stay overnight.

    Next morning, we take an early Helicopter flight which takes you to land near Rara Lake at Talcha, a small airstrip. Soon then, we hike to Murma hill, the highest spot which is approx.. 3,000 meters above the sea level. Therefore, the hill offers the stunning panorama of Rara Lake and its surrounding with views of distant peaks.

    Rara National Park is the smallest national park of Nepal located near Jumla and Mugu Districts of Karnali Zone of Nepal. Since, it’s the smallest national park, it acquires the area of only 106 sq km but includes the biggest lake, Rara. So, the stunning Rara covers the area of 10.8 sq km located at 2,990 m high. The lake is surrounded by coniferous forest dominated by blue pine, black juniper, West Himalayan spruce, oak, Himalayan cypress and other associated species.

    The serene forest around the lake is an ideal habitat for musk deer. Nevertheless, the other animals in the park include Himalayan black bear, leopard, Ghoral, Himalayan Thar and wild boar. And, the Snow trout is the only fish species that is  recorded in the lake. Also, the resident Gallinaceous birds and migrant waterfowl are quite commonly sighted in this area.

    Also, the great-crested grebe, black-necked grebe, and red-crested pochard are seen during the winter season. However, other common birds are the snow-cock, chukor partridge, Impeyan pheasant, Kalij pheasant and blood pheasant.

    After a great enjoyment around beautiful Rara Lake, we hike back to Talcha airport for scenic chopper flight to reach Nepalgunj. Then soon after a small transit we take a chopper flight back to Kathmandu. And finally, with fascinating and marvelous moments on Rara Lake Helicopter Tour, the trip ends after reaching the capital. Also, you can go through other beautiful heli tours in Nepal, Langtang Heli Tour and Everest Heli Tour.
