The Nar Phu valley is a hiking and trekking expedition that combines the remote villages of Nar and Phu, narrow canyons, lovely forests, amazing rock formations, yaks, Monasteries, Kang La Pass and unique Himalayan cultures. You should have good physical fitness to do this trek.
The trek starts from Chamje after 9 hours driving from Kathmandu. We hike the same trail as Annapurna circuit trek. After arriving at Koto, we cross the bridge leading over the Marshyangdi River to the steep portals of the Nar Phu valley. It is easily missed, but although the entrance is narrow and forested, the valley system above opens up to a huge expanse of high snow-peaks, ancient villages and high altitude grazing settlements. Until late 2002, very few westerners have explored these virtually untouched villages or climbed the many 7000m peaks surrounding it. We will venture into this remote region of Nar Phu valley. Buddhist pilgrims from around Nepal might accompany us up to Phu to visit the renowned Tashi Lhakhang Gompa and receive a blessing from Lama Karma Sonam Rimpoche.
Along with spending plenty of time at these colorful and timeless villages, we explore the high alpine valleys above Phu. The Kang La (5315m) pass is amazing. We may enjoy mountain views like Annapurna II, Gangapurna, Tilicho peak then join to Manang for the Annapurna circuit trek. The village of Manang (3,500m/11483feet) marks the beginning of the next stage. You will come back from Manang to Chame, where you can drive back to Kathmandu by public Jeep. If you have time, you can also continue to Jomsom via Thorong La Pass. Tea houses and a Lodge has been built. You can do camping trek as well as tea house trek. If you do tea house trekking, there is simple accommodation and foods are Nepalese dishes. Tea house trek is comparatively least cost so that it is affordable to most of you.
