Nar Phu Valley Trek is a grand excursion to the isolated and antique valleys of the Annapurna region of Western Nepal. For those, who is exploring the typical traditional villages can enjoy discovering unique facts of the hidden mysteries. The trail to the Nar Phu valley is rugged and it becomes adventurous when it joins the Thorong La pass trek after crossing the Kang La Pass of Manang.

Nar Phu Trekking embarks through the exotic Marshyangdi River valley. It can be either Besisahar or Chamje. It is the same Annapurna circuit trail that you walk over. It splits from Koto and winds towards the Upper part of Manang, which has got unusual sceneries of forest and landscape. Walking through off-the-beaten path, first you explore the ancient town of the Phu valley and retrace the same trail that escorts you to the Nar valley. The dazzling peaks of the soaring Annapurna range can be explored. The Tibetan Buddhism has influenced throughout the areas. Once you cross the Kang La Pass, you head to Manang. Ascending to the Thorong La Pass via yak grazing meadows, the breathtaking sceneries of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu and the neighbouring peaks entice you. Beyond the Annapurna region, the dramatic landscape and the windy Kali Gandaki valley along with the renowned Muktinath temple offer the wonderful experience. Due to the Himalayan rain shadow area, the whole area is arid. Nar Phu Valley Trekking with Round Annapurna concludes at Jomsom and you fly to Pokhara.
