About Nar Phu Valley Trek
The Nar Phu Valley Trek combines high passes and peaks, isolated villages, narrow gorges, stunning rock formations, yaks, monasteries and unique ethnic Tibetan cultures. The Nar Phu Valley was closed to visitors until late 2003, when very few trekkers discovered these completely untouched villages.
Starts at Besisahar: the traditional starting point of the Annapurna Circuit Trek – the trek quickly separates from the more foot-traffic routes and the Nar Phu valleys. Passing through colorful Tibetan stupas and prayer wheels in deep canyons, you'll have the chance to hang out with local villagers in Phu while they're doing their day-to-day activities, as well as overnight in the Nar Phedi monastery. These are the ultimate ways to learn about the deep life in the Himalayas of Nepal. Optionally, there's also a hike up to Himlung Himal BC if you feel up to it.
The last few days of the trek take you over the Kang La Pass, and then back to Ngawal, a popular place on the main Annapurna Circuit trek, giving you the chance to enjoy the comfort of your home. The surroundings area become greener and more fertile on the final stretch, before returning by vehicle to Kathmandu.
