About the Trip

During the trek, we pass through beautiful forests, cross high suspension bridges over raging rivers, and encounter traditional villages where the locals still follow a traditional way of life. The Nar Phu Valley is also home to the unique culture of the ethnic Bhote people who are of Tibetan origin and have preserved their traditional customs and lifestyle.

As we explore the valley, we get to witness stunning views of snow-capped peaks, including Annapurna II, Gangapurna, and Tilicho Peak. We also visit the ancient monasteries and gompas that are scattered throughout the valley, including the Tashi Lhakhang Gompa, which is one of the oldest and most important monasteries in the region.

Overall, the Nar Phu Valley trek is a challenging but rewarding experience that offers trekkers a chance to explore one of the most remote and untouched corners of the Himalayas.

Detail Itinerary

Day 01:Arrival at Kathmandu

Upon arrival at Kathmandu, our representative will escort you to your hotel. You will be briefed about your daily activities and have the option to explore the city in the afternoon.

Day 02:Drive fro Kathmandu to besisahar then koto

Drive from Kathmandu to Besisahar and then change to a 4WD vehicle for the journey to Koto. The road is challenging but offers incredible views of gorges and waterfalls. Arrive in Koto in time for dinner.

Day 03:Koto to Meta

Start early for a long day of trekking through the Nar and Phu valleys. The trail passes through beautiful woods, small cave shelters, and pilgrims’ resting places. After emerging from a narrow canyon, the trail passes under a wide waterfall before the woods thin out and the views become wider. The last stretch into Meta involves a steep climb with amazing views of the snowy peaks in the area. Meta is a small village with a few simple but clean lodges and good meals.

Day 04:Meta to Phu Village

After leaving Meta, colorful Buddhist chortens come into view. The trail leads to a monolith guarding the steep path to Phu. The village is impressive with its old Tibetan-style fortress and ruined forts. Before crossing the bridge into Phu, you can see a line of chortens. Visit the famous Tashi Lhakhang Gompa to pay respects to Lama Karma Sonam Rinpoche.

Day 05:Acclimatization Day/rest day

Spend an acclimatization day in Phu to explore the town or hike up to Himlung Himal base camp. The hike takes you through a glacial valley with the possibility of seeing blue sheep.

Day 06:Phu Village to Nar Phedi

Retrace the route back towards Meta and stay for the night at Nar Phedi monastery, which is the only accommodation in the area. The rooms are clean and the nuns are friendly. You can join them in the kitchen to watch them cook dinner on a modest fireplace. At 5 pm, they usually do a puja (blessing) that you can witness.

Day 0:Nar phedi to Nar Village

Today is an easy day. Follow a winding path up a hill towards Nar, passing a line of painted chortens. Arrive in the town around lunchtime. Nar is rarely visited by trekkers and is picturesque. The village is social and lively with women weaving wool fabric for rugs and blankets. You can stay in a comfortable lodge with an extensive menu.

Day 08:Nar Village to Ngawal village

Start early today for a long day’s trek to Kang La Pass (5200 m), which will lead you back onto the Annapurna Circuit. The pass is not too difficult, but the altitude can make it challenging. From the top, you can enjoy stunning views of Annapurna II, Gangapurna, and Tilicho Peak. The descent is steep, but fun if you enjoy scree running. Stop for lunch with a view of the peak and continue towards Ngawal, where you’ll find modern amenities like WiFi and more comprehensive menus.

Day 9:Ngawal to Besisahar

The last day of the trek is a descent of more than 2000m from the pass to Pisang. The weather gets hotter and the scenery greener. The trail is wide and comfortable and passes a beautiful lake just outside Pisang.

Day 10:Drive back to Kathmandu

Drive back to Kathmandu and relax at Kathmandu
