The oval- shaped lake has a water surface of nearly eight square kilometres with hills of pine and rhododendrons around it. The peaceful surroundings are enhanced by the reflection of Ghurchi Lekh in its blue waters. Chankheli peak (4,201 m) looms in north .Large across the deep Mugu Karnali gorge.

The trail is very much "off the beaten path" and affords glimpses of distinct culture of the local people. Within its confines lies the Rara National Park, the smallest park in Nepal. there lies the biggest and one of the deepest lakes of Nepal, the Rara Lake covering the area of 10.8 sq. km. at 2,990 meters.
