Nar Phu Village Trek - 21 Days


The newly opened spectacular and unique Himalayan trail lies in the popular Annapurna region which starts at Besisahar. This trail passes through the Nar and Phu Valleys enriched with ethnically-Tibetan origin inhabitants and the Thorung La Pass eventually. This trek gives an exposure to high peaks and passes, glaciers, narrow canyons, gompas and traditional remote villages. Nar Phu Village trek is an extension of Annapurna Circuit trek and there is a great opportunity of crossing the adventurous Kang La Pass (5,315m/17,438ft). The Nar Phu Valley was closed to foreign trekkers until 2002. Very few foreigners have explored these virtually untouched villages or climbed the many 7,000 meters peaks available in the valley.

Nar Phu village trek needs a special trekking permit. We make our venture camping along the way at the winter settlement of Nar and Phu Valleys. We also pay a visit to some of the most unvisited Tibetan Buddhist world in the area. Exploration of high alpine valleys above Phu up to Himlung Base Camp and crossing over Kang La Pass from Nar to Ngwal on the Pisang route is significantly challenging. In Phu village, there is a chance to visit the renowned Tashi Lhakhang Gompa and receive blessings from Lama Karma Sonam Rimpoche. The trek then leads over the Thorung La pass (5,416m/17,769ft) adding yet another challenge. This trek finally ends at the popular shrine Muktinath Temple and we take a scenic drive to Pokhara next morning.
