The best time to visit Rara

The best time to visit Rara is from March to June when the summer offers a clear blue sky and sunny days. At this time Nepal’s national flower, Rhododendron, lightens the lake with lush red color, while the lake beautifies itself with the crystal blue shades.

Moreover, another best schedule to visit this lake could be from September through November. The weather in these months is neither too hot nor too cold. Actually, these months are better because the monsoon is gone and the winter is yet to arrive. Besides, it is also a favorable time for trekking, taking a bus or jeep rides, and flying.

Unfortunately, monsoon (June to August) and winter (December to February) seasons are not supposed to be an ideal time to visit this lake. Heavy rain during monsoon makes bus routes difficult and vulnerable to landslides. Also, snowfall in winter makes the temperature quite cold and blocks the trail to the lake. However, it does not mean that traveling to Rara during winter and monsoon is impossible. In crux, flying from Nepalgunj to Talcha airport is highly recommended during monsoon.
