Nar Phu Valley Trek

16 Days

The Himalayan country Nepal offers several trekking options ranging from camping to tea houses and luxurious to remote accommodations. Among them, the Nar Phu Valley stands out for its uniqueness, as it remains less beaten and remote. For those who seek to explore a unique culture, a completely different landscape, and fewer crowds, the Nar Phu Valley must be on their bucket list. The trek offers both natural and cultural uniqueness in the Himalayas.

The trek to Nar Phu Valley is a fantastic journey to the wild and unexplored vicinity located north of the Annapurna region. This rugged and wild trek takes you to the exotic and enthralling valley. The journey begins at Jagat, following the popular trekking routes of the Annapurna Circuit trail, and then branches off from Koto to follow the off-the-beaten-track path to Nar Phu Valley. During the trek, you’ll face the challenge of crossing the Kang La Pass, which offers a magnificent panorama of the Annapurna massifs. 

The Kang La Pass connects the Nar village with Manang and three other Bhotia villages. Trekking to this hidden mountain valley offers a glimpse into medieval Tibetan culture in its undisturbed form, away from modern infrastructure. From the Bhotia village, the route then heads west over the Thorong La Pass and descends through lower Mustang before reaching Jomsom. Finally, you can fly back from Jomsom to Pokhara or drive back.

The Nar Phu Valley trekking combined with the Annapurna Circuit typically takes 12-14 days, depending on the chosen route. As a professional trekking company, we are flexible with changing the itinerary if the client wishes to extend the journey or skip days. Altitude sickness may pose a major challenge for inexperienced trekkers; however, our itinerary allows ample time for acclimatization. Local tea houses (local hotels and lodges) provide accommodation and serve healthy and hygienic meals. Spring and autumn seasons are considered the best times for undertaking the Nar Phu Valley trekking.
