Nar-Phu Valley Trek is an exotic journey along the north face of Annapurna, to explore the fascinating valley of Nar Phu. The highlights of the trek include exotic views of high snow-peaks, ancient villages of medieval Tibetan culture, the famous Tashi Lakhang Monastery and exploring high alpine valleys.
Nar-Phu Valley Trek starts from Jagat, which lies along Annapurna Circuit trail, and then leaves the main circuit trail from Koto to follow the less travelled trails to Nar Phu valley. Trekkers get to explore the remote mountain valley trails in the north of Manang and pass the Kang La pass (5315m) with breathtaking panoramic views of the Annapurna massif. Kang La pass connects Nar to Manang and Bhotia villages in the Neyshang valley.
The trek heads to the west of Nar Phu Valley Trek to reach the highest elevation in Annapurna Circuit trail, Thorong La Pass at 5416 m. Then the trekkers descend to lower Mustang following the trails leading to holy Muktinath before heading to Jomsom. The trek finally concludes at Jomsom following flights to Pokhara and then to Kathmandu.
The trek to this secluded mountain valley offers an interesting understanding of medieval Tibetan culture in the region. Any trekker exploring this part of the world will cherish the natural, cultural and historical heritage.
