Nar-Phu Valley Trekking, Explore the Hidden valley trail in Annapurna Region
“Taking life time experience in the north coast, remote non-spoiled mountain”
Nar - Phu Valley, (4080) - kangla pass 5320 continue Thorang La Pass (5416m) and Jomsom, Muktinath, (3810)
Nar Phu Villey is Located in the Annapurna Region northeast of the Annapurna range. The Vally is close to the Tibetan border in a remote corner of Nepal. Since the area is only opened to tourists in 2003, is remote and untouched, very few tourists have visited in the region. So still remains new and unspoiled. And, trekking through Nar phu valley has very different charm as very few westerners have trekked in the area. This is the country beyond, a wild and extremely beautiful mountain landscape full of erotic people, rapid rivers and pristine forest. Due to the remoteness of the region you will experience the Virgin Nature, off beaten path, Mysterious culture and panoramic Mountain Views. This trekking takes you to the beautiful but hidden Nar and Phu Villages forking away from the Annapurna circuit. The Nar Phu valleys combines views of high peaks and passes, glaciers, remote villages, narrow canyons, lovely forests, amazing rock formations, yaks, gompas and two remote Tibetan villages (Nar & Phu). After an exploration through Nar and Phu village we trek back to the Annapurna trail to continue our trek through adventurous Thorung La pass, the holy site of Muktinath and finally to Jomsom to fly to Pokhara.
Nar phu valley trek initiates after completion of necessary trek preparation and guided sightseeing around the Kathmandu valley. From Kathmandu we take a drive towards Besisahar followed by Syange, which is the starting point of our trek. Ascending gradually towards Phu and Nar village comprises the spectacular views of snow capped mountains along the visit to ancient monasteries and chance of exploring Tibetan Buddhism culture and tradition. Kangla pass at an altitude of 5322 meters lets us sight the panoramic views of mountains. Further we will pass through pine forests and Gurung settlements in the Manang valley followed by experiencing the natural vegetation and yak herds at Yak Kharka. Visiting the famous pilgrimage site Muktinath temple gives us the sense of peace and tranquillity. It carries the religious importance for Hinduism and Buddhism. Then we will trek further towards kagbeni along the Kali Gandaki River to arrive at Jomsom from where we will board a flight towards Pokhara. As in the other trekking in Nepal, we trek through valleys, forests, high passes, monasteries, temples but special about Nar Phu Valley Trek is trekking through totally secluded settlement of Nar and Phu that are untouched from the modern civilization and it feels like we are back into time when we watch the daily chores of the villagers of Nar and Phu.
