Overview

As we all know the Himalayas have become the most prominent destinations to do trekking. Here numerous destinations have been exposed to the world and many trekkers arrive to explore them. Besides that, other numerous places aren't exposed much, and very few trekkers know about those places. Among those places, one is the Nar Phu Valley trek in the Annapurna region. This journey takes trekkers to the Hidden Valley, where they can see the vibrant Buddhist culture and unspoiled Himalayan scenery. This journey's route is kind of new and will lead you to a remote yet tempting region of the Annapurna and Manaslu highlands. Leading you through the astonishing local villages and peaceful trails, it will take you to Nar and Phu villages. Meanwhile, these paths are gonna take you to secluded places that are far from civilization and noise.

This journey has the potential of being one of the most visited places in the Himalayas. Here, one could encounter high mountains and passes, glaciers, gorges, local villages, forests, alpine pastures, cultural heritages, and many more. Going along these natural and cultural heritages, you will reach a maximum elevation of 5300m (Kang la Pass). From this and other high-altitude viewpoints of the journey, you will be able to witness Fabulous scenes of Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Annapurna, and Dozens of other peaks.

Finally, the Nar Phu Valley trek journey begins with the long drive to Dharapani. Then on the following day, the trekking journey will start from Koto village. The Multiple-day trekking will take you through several villages including Nar and Phu before finally arriving at Kang La Pass. And on the next day, we trek down to Chame and return to Kathmandu.
