The Nar Phu Valley Trekking is restricted trekking routes in the Annapurna region yet undoubtedly provides some of the world's best trekking experiences, including remote villages, narrow canyons, lovely forests, amazing rock structures, yaks, Buddhist monasteries, unique cultures of Himalayan, and varied scenery which cannot be found in any other area. The striking door to the Nar Phu Valley Trek has been opened to visitors only since 2003. It is one of the best destinations among these majestic mountains.
Nar Phu Trek is one of the most beautiful medieval villages where you can learn about the real lifestyles of high mountain inhabitants the Bhote communities. Nar Phu Trekking begins with a drive from Kathmandu to Besisahar, then follows the famous Annapurna Circuit Trekking route to Koto (nearby district headquarter of Manag). From there one walks through the unique villages of the Tibetan Buddhist world to Nar Phu. This is a wonderful region of 300 ethnically-Tibetan inhabitants. Then, the trail leads you on a suspension bridge over the Marshyangdi River to the steep gateway of the Nar Phu Kangla Pass. The system is easily missed; however, the narrow doorway leads you through the forest valley above a huge spread of high snow-capped mountains, ancient villages, and high-altitude grazing settlements. After two days of walking get to the Tibetan border, this region was first explored by Tilman in the 1950s. Since then it has been closed until 2002. In fact, very few westerners have explored these untouched villages.
We’ll spend a few days exploring the high alpine valleys above Phu, visit the monastery, and trek up to high-altitude settlements and Himlung base camp. The trail continues through to the scenic village of Nar, where can spend a more few days exploring local dwellings before finally heading up over the spectacular Kangla Pass (5,300m) and then back down to the Annapurna Circuit main route. From here the trail leads you through the teahouse trekking route over the Thorung La Pass (5,416m) and down to Muktinath before flying back to Jomsom or to Pokhara. Alternatively, you could continue walking to Beni or Nayapul via the popular sunrise vantage point, Poon Hill. Another option is to fly back from Humde to Pokhara or walk down the same route via Beshisahar.
