Rara Lake Helicopter Tour is a dream trip to the largest Rara Lake located in the Mugu District. Bounded by Rara National Park, Rara Lake is synonymously known as the queen of Lakes, which is beautifully located at the 2990 meters above sea level in western Nepal. You can enjoy and explore this biggest lake of Nepal that has been surrounded the massive white peaks and by the pine forest in a single day in the helicopter.
The access to the Lake by road is a bit lengthy as it is remotely located. Trekking or Driving via Jumla is a long way.

You will be flown over the sky of western Nepal towards Rara Lake in the North after refueling. You can get the views of mountains, hills, local settlements, and many other small lakes. This tour takes about 4 hours from Kathmandu and provides enough time to explore the Rara Lake.

Best Time to Visit Rara Lake
The ideal time to visit the lake would be from March to May. The weather is mild, the rhododendrons are blooming everywhere filling the mountain trails with color, the sky is clear and the lake is a crystal blue during this time of the year. It is also a perfect time for a helicopter tour as the view from above the lake is incredible.
September, October, and November are another choice, as Monsoon is over and winter has not yet arrived. The weather is neither too hot nor too cold and the skies are cloudless. For trekking, driving, and flying, this time of year is perfect. You won’t be disappointed if you travel during this time of the year!
If you are going to be in Nepal in June, July, or August, and still want to visit Rara lake, it is not impossible, just more of an adventure! You could expect long rains, monsoon season, muddy trails, and very likely landslides that can prevent continuing on a trail and forcing you to change your route. Due to the bad weather condition, the flights might be canceled.
The months of December, January and February are not ideal times to visit in considering its elevation of more than 3500 meters, and its remote location. The temperatures are very cold and the passes are covered with snow. And roads and airports are often shut down so taking a helicopter tour is not possible. One strange fact of the lake is that no matter how cold the weather gets the lake never freezes!
