Nar Phu Valley Trek

An amalgamation of high passes, remote villages, and well-preserved Tibetan culture. It was as recent as 2003 that the region was prohibited to outsiders and bypassed many aspects of development. Therefore, the landscape remains pristine while the locals value their ancient traditions and way of life even to this day. The Nar Phu Valley Trek also explores the arid lands of Manang and the lower Mustang. A visit to the Tilicho Lake (4920m) and an ascent to the top of Mesokanto La Pass (5467m) caps off a brilliant adventure.

TREK HIGHLIGHTS

  • Venture to the once-restricted areas of Nar and Phu

  • Cross mountain passes such as the Kang La (5320m) and Mesokanto La (5467m)

NAR PHU VALLEY TREK OVERVIEW

Your arrival in Nepal is signaled by the Himalayas as you land at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. After your arrival, you explore the esteemed UNESCO-enlisted world heritage sites in the valley including Pashupatinath, Boudhanath, and Swayambhunath. The Nar Phu Valley Trek begins at the town of Syange after an early morning drive from Kathmandu.

The trek goes past the villages of Jagat, Dharapani, Koto, and Meta before finally entering the Phu Valley. After thoroughly exploring Phu and observing the village’s unique culture we move to the adjacent village of Nar. From Nar, we get to Tilicho through Manang and Ngawal after crossing the high pass of Kang La (5320m). From Tilicho, we make an ascent to the Mesokanto La Pass (5467m), the highest point of this trek.

We finally rejoin the common trails of the Annapurna Circuit as we trek down to Jomsom via Yak Kharka, for our flight back to Pokhara the next day. The sparsely located settlements on your way to Nar and Phu mean that you are required to cross long distances with little flexibility. Being Physically fit and having trekked before can be very helpful to tackle this trek, but newer travelers can complete the trek as well.
