White Lake

This is Rara Lake, the biggest lake in Nepal. The freshwater lake becomes white in the winter, and varieties of wildflowers cover the green-blue surroundings.

I had a big dream of going to Rara and taking pictures in the heart of winter, so I was excited to see such weather conditions. One day, I saw the forecast for snowfall in the next few days, so I traveled to Rara National Park. I first flew to Nepalgunj from Kathmandu, then took another flight to Talcha Airport, followed by a 3-hour hike to the lake. After waiting three days for the snowfall, I finally got the chance to take this photo in 2018.
