Nar Phu Valley Trek

Trip Code: NNP

24 Days

Phu Village

Explore the hidden valleys of Nar & Phu to the north of Annapurna region and experience a true wilderness while trekking through two challenging high passes: Kang La and Thorong La. Opened to visitors only in 2003, this is an exciting trekking into an unexplored remote of Nepal. The local people are of Tibetan descendants and have still retained Tibetan Buddhism, tradition and culture. Most of the inhabitants engage in yak herding and farming.
This trek is perfect for those who want to discover a virgin region where people commune with nature and untouched by modernization. While trekking, you will be mesmerizing with spectacular views of the Annapurna massif, Lamjung Himal, Machhapuchhre Himal, Manaslu Himal, Dhaulagiri range and Tilicho peak. Nar Phu Valley Trek is recommended for those who want to do Annapurna circuit trek as well as to explore an untouched valley of Nar and Phu at the same time.  The major highlights of Nar and Phu Valley Trek is beautiful forests, wonderful rock formations, yaks grazing sight,  Buddhist Monasteries, Kang La Pass and unique Himalayan cultures.
Trekking to  Nar and Phu Valley begins from  Besisahar tracking the popular trail of Annapurna Circuit and then forks from Koto to follow the off- the- beaten track to Nar and  Phu villages in the north of Manang and pass the Kang La pass with the magnificent panorama of Annapurna massifs. The Kang La high pass connects Nar village with Manang and three other Bhotia villages in the Neyshang valley.
After visiting Nar and Phu Valley we head for the west direction over the Thorong La Pass and then walk down through lower Mustang until we reach  Jomsom. From Jomsom, we fly back to Pokhara and next day we drive back to Kathmandu and conclude our trip.

Nar Phu Valley Trek is highly popular as a non-touristy destination in Nepal.
