So, what do you think? Don’t you want to call your best buddies and have them get their backpacks ready and just leave? But before that, the big question is, how do you get there? According to Alan Rana, a traveler who visited Rara Lake last year, there are quite a number of ways to reach there – motorbike, local buses, flights or you can simply trek. If you want to reach there by flight, you can fly to Nepalgunj and then take a flight to Talcha where the nearest airport is located. Or you can reach Surkhet on a public bus and take a jeep or bus from there to Talcha. It will take you a couple of hours to trek from Talcha to Rara.
