Nar Phu Valley
Nar Phu Valley Trekking offers a wonderful and stunning view of the mountains and peaks of the Annapurna region. This trek is a fantastic trip that combines the village of Nar and Phu. We have modified and present you with a very special itinerary for exploring the Nar Phu valley and be off the beaten track. This trek provides the ultimate challenge of high passes like Masokanto La (5099m), Kangla pass (5200m) & Tilicho Pass (5230m). And you will get to observe the beautiful Lake Tilicho.
Nar Phu valley takes five hours to reach the pass that links Nar with Manang. And the three Bhotia villages in the Nyershang down the valley. This trek is perfect for travelers who desire to study the Annapurna spherical. This trek also helps to find out an unscathed valley. The special about this tour is that the 300 inhabitants all depend on livestock, multiple most Bhote people, who are very trading with Tibet. But after the Nepal Government closed the border their trade pattern is drastically changed. The humans of Nar and Phu valley had been least affected via the change.
This itinerary, therefore, is very alternative, just a few foreigners have visited the area. And tourism infrastructure is almost non-existent. Only recently the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) reached out for this valley. Now, this trek is suitable for a tourism development plan that is undertaken in this undiscovered valley. This tour is listed in a restricted area. Therefore, we need to have a special trekking permit for the Nar Phu.
The trek starts after a day’s ride from Kathmandu to Besishar. From here we follow the popular Annapurna Circuit route until Koto. And then the real adventure starts by leaving the beaten route until we get to Nar Phu.
