Trip Highlights

  • Trek & traverse Nar Phu trek of above 5,000 meters high pass.
  • Visiting the high hidden area of Nar and Phu villages in less frequented areas.
  • Tremendous, picturesque landscapes with close views of high peaks.
  • The dramatic change in scenery from sub-tropic, alpine to arctic zone.
  • Fascinating old Buddhist religion, traditional villages with a rich culture.
  • Enchanting woodlands of tall rhododendrons, pines, and oaks trees.

Nar Phu trek is suited in Nar and Phu's distinct, hidden valleys located in the beautiful Manang region of the Annapurna region of Western Nepal. A military-restricted area up until 2003, the region is a perfect trekking destination for those trekkers who want to travel to even more far-flung and isolated remote Himalayan valleys, away from the bustling crowd of trekkers. Located in the rain shadow of the Annapurna Circuit trek, Nar Phu Valley lies just north of the colossal Annapurna. Nar Phu Trek to these hidden gems comprises enriching experiences like exploration of the otherworldly natural wonders, ancient and fascinating culture, and being in very close vicinity of awe-inspiring mountains.

The 21-day-long Nar Phu trek boasts of being jam-packed with dramatic landscapes that stretch from rice and paddy fields to dense rhododendrons, pines, oaks, and fir forests to windswept arid valleys. This is one of the most outstanding journeys you will embark on in the Annapurna region, which will take you to off-beaten trails for a week, before joining back on the classic and popular Annapurna route to Jomsom after making a journey through two incredible Himalayan passes of Kang-La and Thorong-La Passes which lie at elevations of 5,332m and 5,416m respectively. From these passes, we can have amazing views of mountains like Annapurna II at 7,937 m, Annapurna IV at 7,525 m, Gangapurna at 7,455m, and several other peaks over 6,000 meters. Another main highlight of the journey is trekking down to Mustang district, which is also known as Land Beyond the Himalayas. The windswept, arid, and dusty landscapes of Mustang are totally different than the lush forest trails you trekked through. In Mustang, we will visit the famous Muktinath temple, which is a very important shrine for Hindus and Buddhists alike.

The Nar Phu trek begins with a scenic bus ride from Kathmandu to Besi Shahar of Lamjung District. Nestled in the foothills of Mt. Lamjung, Beshi Shahar is a bustling economic hub of the region, where you can indulge in some last-minute shopping for the trek. From Beshi Shahar, we will trek through beautiful mid-hill towns and villages like Dharapani and Kotto. From Kotto, we will trek to Dharamshala, which in itself is a prominent Buddhist hub with its ornately built ancient monasteries. From here, we will trek to Phu village through Kyang. After a full-day exploration of Phu village, we will trek further uphill to reach Nar village through Nar Phedi. From Nar village, we will hike up to the enthralling Kang La Pass, which is a perfect encapsulation of thrill, adventure, and gratification. After crossing the Kang La Pass, we will move on to our next adventure destination, Thorong La Pass via Manang. After successfully crossing the adrenaline-pumping Thorong La Pass, we will reach a new district altogether, Mustang. After Nar Phu trekking through the windswept valleys of Mustang, we will trek down to Jomsom, from where we will catch a flight to the Lake City of Pokhara, where we can chill and enjoy some laid-back time after a long, hard Nar Phu trek. In this way, Nar Phu trek is a complete trekking package, that offers you the best of Nepal’s both cultural and natural heritage.

Nguyen Minh Hoang

7th Jul, 2018

It was a brilliant adventure, Nar Phu and crossing Kang-La as well Thorong-La Pass

It was a brilliant adventure, very different from most other treks that I have done in the Himalayas before. Nar Phu and crossing Kang-La as well as Thorang-La Pass were very exciting and enjoyable treks of my lifetime experience. After diverting from the main trail of Annapurna Circuit at Koto village, the trek became more interesting on the least crowded route. Reaching Phu and Nar villages it 
was an unbelievable experience. Never thought that human settlement could exist in such a dry and windswept country. The villagers were exceptionally friendly along with the superb and beautiful scenic location. 
 The crossing of Kang-La was great and the weather was just perfect in the morning time, as well as being in Manang village. It was very pleasant with nice lodge accommodations and the best food, and the climb to Thorang-La was quite hard. But it was great and adventurous, I would say the downhill was much harder than climbing to the top of Thorang-La. Overall it was just a marvelous adventure and 
glad that I did it, and thanks to Team Himalaya and its friendly staff and guide.

Trip Highlights

  • Trek & traverse Nar Phu trek of above 5,000 meters high pass.
  • Visiting the high hidden area of Nar and Phu villages in less frequented areas.
  • Tremendous, picturesque landscapes with close views of high peaks.
  • The dramatic change in scenery from sub-tropic, alpine to arctic zone.
  • Fascinating old Buddhist religion, traditional villages with a rich culture.
  • Enchanting woodlands of tall rhododendrons, pines, and oaks trees.

Nar Phu trek is suited in Nar and Phu's distinct, hidden valleys located in the beautiful Manang region of the Annapurna region of Western Nepal. A military-restricted area up until 2003, the region is a perfect trekking destination for those trekkers who want to travel to even more far-flung and isolated remote Himalayan valleys, away from the bustling crowd of trekkers. Located in the rain shadow of the Annapurna Circuit trek, Nar Phu Valley lies just north of the colossal Annapurna. Nar Phu Trek to these hidden gems comprises enriching experiences like exploration of the otherworldly natural wonders, ancient and fascinating culture, and being in very close vicinity of awe-inspiring mountains.

The 21-day-long Nar Phu trek boasts of being jam-packed with dramatic landscapes that stretch from rice and paddy fields to dense rhododendrons, pines, oaks, and fir forests to windswept arid valleys. This is one of the most outstanding journeys you will embark on in the Annapurna region, which will take you to off-beaten trails for a week, before joining back on the classic and popular Annapurna route to Jomsom after making a journey through two incredible Himalayan passes of Kang-La and Thorong-La Passes which lie at elevations of 5,332m and 5,416m respectively. From these passes, we can have amazing views of mountains like Annapurna II at 7,937 m, Annapurna IV at 7,525 m, Gangapurna at 7,455m, and several other peaks over 6,000 meters. Another main highlight of the journey is trekking down to Mustang district, which is also known as Land Beyond the Himalayas. The windswept, arid, and dusty landscapes of Mustang are totally different than the lush forest trails you trekked through. In Mustang, we will visit the famous Muktinath temple, which is a very important shrine for Hindus and Buddhists alike.

The Nar Phu trek begins with a scenic bus ride from Kathmandu to Besi Shahar of Lamjung District. Nestled in the foothills of Mt. Lamjung, Beshi Shahar is a bustling economic hub of the region, where you can indulge in some last-minute shopping for the trek. From Beshi Shahar, we will trek through beautiful mid-hill towns and villages like Dharapani and Kotto. From Kotto, we will trek to Dharamshala, which in itself is a prominent Buddhist hub with its ornately built ancient monasteries. From here, we will trek to Phu village through Kyang. After a full-day exploration of Phu village, we will trek further uphill to reach Nar village through Nar Phedi. From Nar village, we will hike up to the enthralling Kang La Pass, which is a perfect encapsulation of thrill, adventure, and gratification. After crossing the Kang La Pass, we will move on to our next adventure destination, Thorong La Pass via Manang. After successfully crossing the adrenaline-pumping Thorong La Pass, we will reach a new district altogether, Mustang. After Nar Phu trekking through the windswept valleys of Mustang, we will trek down to Jomsom, from where we will catch a flight to the Lake City of Pokhara, where we can chill and enjoy some laid-back time after a long, hard Nar Phu trek. In this way, Nar Phu trek is a complete trekking package, that offers you the best of Nepal’s both cultural and natural heritage.

Trip Reviews (1)

It was a brilliant adventure, very different from most other treks that I have done in the Himalayas before. Nar Phu and crossing Kang-La as well as Thorang-La Pass were very exciting and enjoyable treks of my lifetime experience. After diverting from the main trail of Annapurna Circuit at Koto village, the trek became more interesting on the least crowded route. Reaching Phu and Nar villages it 
was an unbelievable experience. Never thought that human settlement could exist in such a dry and windswept country. The villagers were exceptionally friendly along with the superb and beautiful scenic location. 
 The crossing of Kang-La was great and the weather was just perfect in the morning time, as well as being in Manang village. It was very pleasant with nice lodge accommodations and the best food, and the climb to Thorang-La was quite hard. But it was great and adventurous, I would say the downhill was much harder than climbing to the top of Thorang-La. Overall it was just a marvelous adventure and 
glad that I did it, and thanks to Team Himalaya and its friendly staff and guide.
