trip Overview

Nar Phu valley trek is one of the popular treks in Nepal which lies in the remote area of Manang District. You need a special permit to visit this region as this region is considered a restricted area in Nepal. This trek combines both remote villages of Nar and Phu, lovely forests, amazing rock formation, yaks, Kang La Pass, and Himalayan culture. Trekkers must be physically fit for doing this trek. It offers a fascinating landscape an extension to the standard Annapurna Circuit tea house trek behind the Annapurna Himal.

Nepal Dream Path starts Nar Phu Valley trek with a drive from Kathmandu to Chamje, starting point of the Annapurna Circuit. On the way, trekkers can witness the amazing views of mountains such as (Annapurna, Gangapurna, Ticlicho peak) and alpine scenery of hidden mountain valley. Passing colorful Tibetan chortens and carving stones into deep canyons and gorges, you will get a chance to know about villagers in Phu. It is not only about two villages in the valley; we can see villages like manang, chamje, Meta and Kyang along the trail of Nar Phu trekking. The vegetation gradually changes to alpine and then sub-alpine scrub; favored by both bharal (blue sheep) and snow leopards. We can have the great pleasure of sightseeing inside the Tashi Lhakhang Monastery.

There are two major passes Thorong la Pass and Kang La Pass. In a middle couple of days of the trek take you over the high Kang La pass then down again to Ngawal. When trekkers go through these two passes they will feel like they are traveling to heaven. The best time to do this trek is Spring and autumn.

We are 2 friend from Australia and we went Nepal for Narphu valley trek. We have one best friend in Nepal and he recommend Nepal Dream Path Treks and Expedition for our trek.
