Nar Phu Valley trekking which is an exotic land offers medieval Tibetan culture in undisturbed form, dramatic mountain views and great alpine scenery, located in Annapurna trekking region. Nar phu valley trek is opened to the tourist only in 2003. Trek to the Nar Phu valley requires special trekking permit. Nar Phu trek takes you to the remote Nar phu valley inhabited by Nepalese Tibetans. Nepal Nar Phu village is well known as regions of ethnically- Nepalese Tibetan inhabitants, the population about 350 inhabitants who depend on livestock, unlike most Bhotia people, whose trading patterns changed after the Nepali Government, closed borders with Tibet.
Nar Phu valley trek starting point is Beshi Sahar following the popular Annapurna circuit trail and branch off at Koto to follow the off the beaten track to Nar Phu valley in the north of Manang Valley. The trek up to Nar and Phu combines high snow-peaks and passes, glaciers, remote villages, narrow canyons, forests, amazing rock formations, yaks, gompas and unique Himalayan cultures. Closed to trekkers until late 2002, very few westerners have explored these virtually untouched villages or climbed the many 7000m peaks surrounding it.
Along with spending plenty of time at these colorful and timeless villages, we explore the high alpine valleys above Phu (including Himlung Base Camp for those who want to), and then from Nar cross the Kang La to Ngawal on the upper Pisang route leading back into the Annapurna circuit.
