The park is surrounded by alpine coniferous vegetation and offers a representative sample of the region's flora and fauna.

The Rara Lake is 5 km long and 3 km wide. The maximum depth of this lake is 167m. Wilderness and isolation travel destination Karnali, Jumla and Rara Lake are still comparatively unexplored and provide the glimpses of typical villages’ cultures and their rustic way of life. A journey into the Jumla region and the beautiful Rara Lake is probably one of the most rewarding and fascinating treks in all the Himalayan range given its un-spoilt splendor of nature.

The best time to visit the park is autumn, spring and summer.
