Trek through a restricted area of Nar and Phu

The Nar Phu Valley Trek offers a rare chance to explore one of Nepal’s least-visited regions in West Nepal. With its untouched medieval Tibetan culture, scenic landscapes, and limited tourist footfall since opening to the public in 2003, this trek promises an exclusive and captivating experience.

Access to the Nar Phu Valley requires a special permit, obtainable through authorized trekking agencies, allowing a seven-day exploration into these pristine valleys.

Commencing from Koto, a small village marking the junction of the Annapurna circuit trail and the gateway to Nar Phu, the trek veers off the familiar path, traversing a narrow river valley north of the Annapurna range.

Several days are dedicated to acclimatization and exploration, immersing trekkers in subalpine forests, enigmatic valleys, and narrow river gorges amidst a vibrant Tibetan Buddhist culture. The region also boasts an increasing wildlife presence, including the elusive snow leopard occasionally sighted en route to Nar village.

The trek proceeds to a high camp at Kang La Phedi (4,530m) before a gradual ascent to Kang La pass (5,320m), offering breathtaking vistas of the Annapurna range and the Marshyangdi valley. On clear days, a panoramic 360-degree view unfolds, showcasing Kang La as the passage from the remote Nar/Phu Valley into the renowned Marshyangdi Valley. The steep descent then leads to Ngawal village (3,615m), integrating with the main Annapurna circuit trail.

Glimpses of towering peaks like Lamjung Himal, Annapurna II, Annapurna IV, Annapurna III, and the North Face of the Annapurna Range await from the summit of Kang La.

The return journey involves a drive to Besisahar, a night’s stopover, followed by an 8-10 hour overland expedition on rugged roads back to Kathmandu.

Note: Ensuring everyone’s safety remains our priority, and should anyone feel unwell, encounter challenges, or if the pass presents difficult conditions like heavy snow, we’ll opt to retrace our steps along the same route taken in. Our approach prioritizes prevention over cure, safeguarding everyone’s well-being throughout the trek.
