About Nar Phu Valley Trek
The fusion of distant villages of Nar and Phu, slender canyons, divine forests, startling rock formations, yaks, monasteries, Kang La Pass and sole Himalayan culture is what Nar Phu valley trek helps us experience and enjoy. Nar Phu Valley Trek is an adventurous trek that lets you experience the adventurous trail. Nar Phu Valley Trekking takes you to the most remote part in the Annapurna region, where you will see a completely different lifestyle, culture, and stunning landscape view.
The trek commences from Chamje after you do a 9 hours drive from Kathmandu. You walk the same trail as Annapurna circuit trek. After you arrive at Koto, you cross the airy bridge that heads over the Marshyangdi River to the sheer portals of the Nar Phu valley. With a tapered and forested entrance, the valley opens up to a huge stretch of high snow-peaks, primeval villages, and high altitude grazing settlements. Very few western trekkers have felt the bliss of exploring these astonishing villages or climbing the mesmerizing 7000m peaks surrounding this area. We will drift into this secluded region of Nar Phu valley.
The renowned Tashi Lhakhang Gompa is located in Phu until where Buddhist pilgrims will join us to receive blessings from Lama Karma Sonam Rimpoche. You will also explore the high alpine valleys above Phu whilst spending time at the multihued villages and their distinctive culture. The Kang La pass at 5,315m is astounding. You may be able to cherish the view of Annapurna II, Gangapurna, Tilicho peak and then head to Manang for Annapurna circuit trek. The colorful village of Manang at 3,500m marks the commencement of the next stage. We will come back from Manang to Chamje from where we can drive back to Kathmandu via public jeep or if we have time, we can also carry on to Jomsom via the Thorong La Pass.
