Nar Phu Valley Trek

Trip Overview

Nar Phu Valley Trek is located in the isolated corner of the restricted part of Annapurna between Damodar Kunda and Annapurna Circuit part one. The area is untouched by modernity and where people adopted Tibetan culture for many centuries back. This off-the-beaten-track trek from Annapurna offers a real taste of Himalayan lifestyle, culture, tradition, and old Buddhist monasteries, and explore an untouched valley that offers an incredible view of majestic mountains in the high lands along with beautiful medieval and ancient remote villages such as Nar and Phu, amazing rock formations, glaciers, narrow canyons, lovely and pleasant forests, unique Himalayan and Tibetan culture, life styles, and high altitude settlements.

Nar Phu Valley predominantly lies in the Manang district of Gandaki Zone. In the beginning, we followed the Annapurna Circuit trail part one till Koto. Nar Phu valley is contracted and forested, the valley opens up to a vast area of high snow-topped peaks, prehistoric villages, and high elevated grazing lands. A very minority number of tourists has walked around this region. While trekking to this occasionally trekked trail we will be camping along the way to Nar and Phu, or we will be organizing a homestay trip to experience and interact with locals. We visit some of the virgin and attractive villages of the Tibetan Buddhists. Buddhist pilgrims probably visit Phu to visit the well-known monastery, Tashi Lhakhang, and get a blessing from the Lama.

Nar Phu Valley Trek rewards you with the total wilderness experience and unexplored Tibetan villages just opened for outsiders only since 2003. This trek takes you to the exotic valley that is in the far-off corner of the Annapurna region. The Nar Phu Valley remains untouched by modernity. Trekking in the area is unlike most of Nepal as the terrain is Trans Himalayan and similar to that of Tibet.

The trail is still rugged and the people and culture have remained intact. A special trekking permit is required to visit this place. After a couple of days of exploration of the valley, we cross over Kang La Pass 5320m on the way to Manang. We join the main trekking trail to Annapurna Round Trek following the best trekking route of Thorong La Pass 5416m. This remote and rugged trail offers a challenging and exhilarating trekking experience for adventure enthusiasts. With, Wilderness Excursion Pvt. Ltd, you can explore Nar Phu Valley Trek and observe incredible views of the Annapurna massif, Machhapuchhre Himal, Lamjung Himal, Manaslu Himal, Tilicho Peak, Dhaulagiri range and several other snow-capped peaks.
