“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

To a great degree, Nar Phu Trek is an exceptional trek that takes you on an enterprise to one of the regularly vivid valleys of Nar and Phu. Situated north of the Manang Valley in the Annapurna range this valley is open for outside travelers since 2003 AD. Hence, the valley has not yet been touched by modern developments. Socially this valley upholds the Buddhist religion regardless of the way that at the beginning of this trek, travelers can see some Hindu religion moreover the routes. Our Nar Phu Valley Trek starts from Besisahar through the Chamje town then onward move to the Nar Phu valleys or also referred as to the “Hidden Valley”. The initial days of Nar Phu Valley Trekking are alluring with light social orders, natures, religious and typical lifestyle flourishing throughout the trek. At present people from this valley generally, depend majorly upon Yarsagumba trading business which occurs from May to July. Continuing on with our trek, we shall hike up the same trail as Annapurna Circuit Trek. In the wake of getting in contact with Koto village, we now navigate our way through the Marshyangdi River into the knotty doors of the Nar Phu valley. Disregarding the fact that the way ahead is lush and forested, the valley system above opens up to a colossal banquet of soaring snow-peaks, old towns and high stature touching settlements. Trekkers until late 2002, had not explored these basically untouched towns or climbed the various 7000m apexes incorporating it in a particular manner so even though it’s starting to capture the eyes of the trekkers, the trails are still not packed like those of other popular regions. We now meander into this remote range of Nar Phu valley so Buddhist pioneers from around Nepal may run with us up to Phu to visit the well-known Tashi Lhakhang Gompa and get a blessing from Lama Karma Sonam Rimpoche. Nearby contributing a great deal of vitality at these lovely and godlike towns, we explore the high snowcapped valleys above Phu. Among which the Kang La Pass will be a spectacular place situated at an elevated height of 5315m. Also, we get to see mountains like Annapurna II, Gangapurna, Tilicho then join a trail into Manang. The town of Manang (3,500m/11483feet) we start our trek from to Muktinath via Thorong La (5,416m) and later descend further down to Jomsom where we can take an early flight to Pokhara and end our trek via drive back to Kathmandu. The Nar Phu Valley is gone to by only an unassuming group of visitors every year so it's the perfect trek for trekkers expecting to discover something new that trekkers have yet to wander upon. Generally, April to June and September to November are considered as the best months for this particular trek. So be a part of this venture through some hidden valleys within the Himalayas with our trekking group to experience a vainglorious trek in Nepal.
