Natural beauty of Rara lake

Posted by Anup Baral | October 14, 2016 :
Trekking through the Rara & Jumla region is an interesting as well as a beautiful journey. This trail will take you through barren landscapes alternated with beautiful pine forests, over multiple passes and through remote mountain villages where time seems to have stood still. Both Hindu Chhetri and Buddhist live in this part of Nepal. This suggested trail ends at the serene Rara Lake, the biggest lake in Nepal. The crystal clear waters are surrounded by forests and mountains and on a still day one can see the mountains and clouds reflecting on the tranquil surface. Despite the natural beauty at offer in this remote part of Nepal very few tourists find there way here and you’re likely to have the trail to yourself with some nice encounters with friendly locals.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
