Nar Phu Valley trek
Nar Phu valley trek takes you to the remote villages of Nar and Phu. Nar Phu valley is located in the isolated corner of the north of the Annapurna region. We start this trek on the same trail as Annapurna Circuit trek. After arriving in Koto and before reaching Chame, we cross the bridge leading over the Marshyangdi River to the steep portals of the Nar Phu valley. The Nar Phu valley trek is a great choice as a non touristic destination and is a very special trekking area of Nepal. It is rich in cultural heritage. Traditional life style and wonderful nomad landscapes are the rewards of taking this exploration journey in this remote hidden mountain valley. Nar Phu valley opens up to a huge expanse of high snow-peaks, ancient villages and high altitude grazing settlements. We can enjoy mountain view of Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Annapurna IV, Gangapurna, Tilicho Peak, Pisang Peak, Chulu far, Chulu east and Chulu west.
You can either do this trek as a camping trek or tea house trek. If you do tea house trekking, there are basic accommodations and simple Nepalese food available. The cost for tea house trek is comparatively lower, making it more affordable. After crossing Kang La Pass (5315 m), you can head to Manang to rejoin the Annapurna Circuit trek and then continue to Jomsom via Thorong La Pass. Alternatively, you can take a flight from Humde Airport and fly back to Pokhara.
