About this Project

One of the prime tourist destinations, Rara Lake situated at a high altitude of 2900m, offers a large-scale contribution in promoting tourism. But due to complex topography, lack of infrastructure, and political instability, the extent of Rara’s tourism has not been exploited fully to date. Lack of basic infrastructure and facilities for local people and national and international tourists are other hindrances for its development. In such context, construction of a cycle track of about 14kms around the lake seems to be a recent prerequisite to promote tourism in this region. This project aims to attract a large number of tourists that will definitely increase employment opportunities and market development for local people. Such activities will ultimately promote to country’s economy. As the trek or bike ride is long-hour travel, it will offer relaxing and mesmerizing lake scenery on a cycle ride to all the tourists. On the other hand, cycles being eco-friendly will be a plus point regarding the environmental pollution issues.
