Nar Phu Valley trek is a fantastic trek in one of the most remote places of Nepal. The trek takes you to the north region of Manang, which is almost untouched and unspoiled by the modern world.
Diverting from Annapurna Circuit
Starting from Syange, we follow the famous Annapurna Circuit and pass through Thorang La Pass. We then take a different off-beaten path at Koto and head towards the Nar Phu Valley. There is a gradual change of the vegetation from alpine to sub-alpine as we arrive at the natural habitat of snow leopards. Nar Phu Valley Trek is a combination of remote villages, beautiful forests, narrow canyons, high passes, the wilderness of the Himalayas, as well as Gompas and Buddhist culture.
The trek provides you with a unique experience with beautiful traditional villages, spectacular mountain ranges, and immensely ancient cultures and traditions. Unknown to most trekkers, the area is quite profoundly influenced by Tibetan culture and offers a unique perspective to the lives of the mountain-dwellers.
Exploring a Hidden World
The inhabitants mainly rely on yak rearing and salt trade. The valley is ideal for trekkers to get the taste of life in northern Nepal. Moreover, it also takes you to the dry and desert-like Tibetan plateau. We also visit the Muktinath Temple, which is a sacred pilgrimage for Hindus. Additionally, the magnificent valleys of Manang and Mustang, Marsyangdi and Kali Gandaki Rivers, and the arid deserts with snow-clad mountains make this trek truly one of the most beautiful treks.
The valleys of Nar and Phu are the major destinations of this trek. This route only opened to trekkers in 2002 but has gradually gained popularity over the years. The trail has enough teahouses and lodges for basic necessities of the trekkers. Moreover, there is also the provision of homestays for overnight stays.
We recommend you to do the Nar Phu Valley Trek during autumn and spring. During these seasons, you can fully enjoy the trek without being hindered by the weather. Additionally, we provide experienced guides as well as an affordable price for this amazing trek package.
