Nar Phu Valley Trek

A fantastic journey in a wild and unexplored area located north of Annapurna: the Nar Phu Valley. This trek is perfect for travelers who want to discover the Annapurna circuit as well as explore an untouched valley. A rough and wild trek, this trek takes you to the exotic valley that lies in the remote corner of the Annapurna region. Opened to visitors only in 2003, it remains untouched by modernity. The inhabitants, where roughly comprise about 350 Nepalese Tibetans, have retained their age-old practices. Most of them are engaged in yak herding and farming.

We start this trek from Chamje after driving from Kathmandu. From Chamje to Koto, we follow the route of the Annapurna Circuit Trek. During the Nar Phu Valley Trek, we cross Phu Pass, 5050 m, Nar Pass, 5400m and Kangla Pass, 5306 m. We find picturesque villages, ancient monasteries, and narrow canyons to reach remote Nar and Phu villages near Tibet. After visiting the Nar Phu Valley, you will be rejoining the Annapurna Circuit Trails in Manang Village. We continue our trek ahead to Thorong-La Pass (5416m).

After crossing one of the highest passes (Thorong-La Pass), you will reach Muktinath. Muktinath is a common pilgrimage site for Hindu and Buddhist people. From Muktinath, it remains one more day to trek to Jomsom and fly back to Pokhara. This trek also offers fantastic views of the Annapurna massif, Lamjung Himal, Machhapuchhre Himal, Manaslu Himal, Dhaulagiri Range, and Tilicho Peak. Don’t miss out on experiencing an untouched culture!
