Nar Phu Valley Trekking takes you to one of the most remote and enthralling regions of Nepal. A newly opened region for trekking in recent years resembles the landscapes pretty similar to that of Tibet. A rugged and wild trek, this trek takes you to the exotic Nar Phu Valley that lies in the remote corner of the Annapurna region. The Nar Phu valley is a trek that combines remote villages of Nar and Phu, narrow canyons, lovely forests, amazing rock formations, yaks, monasteries, Kang La Pass and unique Himalayan cultures. Visited by very few trekkers this exotic land offers medieval Tibetan culture in undisturbed form, dramatic mountain views and great alpine scenery.
Nar Phu Valley Trekking starts from Chamje after 9 hours drive from Kathmandu, following the same trail as Annapurna circuit trek. After arriving to Koto, we cross the bridge leading over the Marshyangdi River to the steep portals of the Nar Phu valley is easily missed, but although the entrance is narrow and forested, the valley system above opens up to a huge expanse of high snow-peaks, ancient villages and high altitude grazing settlements. Trekkers until late 2002, very few westerners have explored these virtually untouched villages or climbed the many 7000m peaks surrounding it. We will venture into this remote region of Nar Phu valley. Buddhist pilgrims from around Nepal might accompany us up to Phu to visit the renowned Tashi Lhakhang Gompa and receive a blessing from Lama Karma Sonam Rimpoche. Along with spending plenty of time at these colorful and timeless villages, we explore the high alpine valleys above Phu. The Kang La (5315m) pass is amazing. We may enjoy mountains view like annapurna II, Gangapurna, Tilicho peak then head towards Manang for Annapurna circuit trek. The village of Manang (3,500m) marks the beginning of the next stage. While returning ing back from Manang to Chame we can drive back to Kathmandu via public transportation. If we have time in our hands, we can also continue to Jomsom via Thorong La Pass.
