Nar Phu Valley Trek
Nar Phu valley trek is an exotic valley, located in Annapurna region at mid western Nepal. A breathtaking high altitude cultural treks take you to the anceint monastries and villages of Nar and Phu. Nar Phu has been opened to visitors only since 2003.
These valleys are home to Tibetan inhabitants. The people and their culture have remained more similar to Tibetan than Nepalese since its remoteness and more proximity to Tibet. Very few trekkers have explored these virtually untouched villages and climbed the many 7,000 m. peaks surrounding it.
Not only you will experience Tibetan culture but this trek has it all, high peaks and passes, glaciers, remote villages, narrow canyons, lovely forests and amazing rock formations.
The other highlight of the trek undoubtedly has to be the majestic views of Annapurna II, Gangapurna, Manaslu and Tilicho peak, Dhaulagiri range, Lamjung Himal, Nilgiri and many more snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas. It offers stunning views of the Himalayas and beautiful waterfalls along the trail during the monsoon, and also the experience of passing by a now abandoned Khampa guerilla camp on the way.
So, come along on the Nar-Phu Valley Trek and enjoy the landscape, the people and the serene atmosphere in the valley forgotten by time- where much of it remains the same as it was years before.
