Overview

Narphu Valley Trekking


One of the newly opened regions, the trek to the Nar and Phu valley takes you to the remote but enthralling region of Nepal. Unlike other regions of Nepal, trekking the region of Nar and Phu you will observe that the landscape is similar to that of Tibet.

You will enjoy the delightful sights of old-world Tibetan villages, astonishing rock formations, high altitude grazing settlements, narrow canyons, deep forests and majestic snow clad peaks during your trek to the Nar and Phu valley.

The trail follows a rugged path as you explore the picturesque Tibetan villages of Nar and Phu, cross the Kang La Pass, take on the less traveled route to Tilicho Lake and the Meso Kanta Pass (5089m) which links the Manang and Kali Gandaki valley. This traversing of the pass provides you a more challenging and interesting alternative to the popular Thorong La pass on the Annapurna Circuit. This is a trek with explosive, great adventure that should never be missed.
