      Trek to deepest and biggest Lake of Nepal

      Nepal is a beautiful country. Almost all part of Nepal is beautiful. This time I went for Rara trek. I enjoyed the trip a lot. I viewed many beautiful wild animals and birds, tropical forests with blossoming flowers and herbs, mountains and many more. The way was a little slippery but overall it was fun. I also insisted on my guide to organizing a dive to Rara Lake. It was so difficult so it could not happen. But still, another adventure was very good. I enjoyed it a lot. Thank you for organizing such a beautiful trip for me. God bless you and see you soon!
