The Nar Phu trek takes you to the remote villages of Nar and Phu near Chame in the Annapurna area. This untouched corner of Nepal offers a chance to see the lives of the Khampas, Tibetan refugees who call these villages home.
Your journey will be filled with majestic mountain views, encounters with yaks, treks through deep canyons and lush forests, and views of striking glaciers. Notable highlights include the high Kang la and Thorong la mountain passes, and a relaxing stop at Tatopani's natural hot springs.
The adventure begins with a drive from Kathmandu to Jagat. From Jagat, the path follows the Annapurna trail until reaching Meta. Next, we cross a bridge over the Marshyangdi River which leads into the Nar Phu Valley.
Venturing through the forest, you'll soon be welcomed by a vast snowy landscape featuring peaks like Kang Garu and Pisang. The trek brings you by ancient villages and monasteries, and you might even see yaks or blue sheep grazing along the way.
After exploring the picturesque Nar Valley, we ascend the Kang la Pass and descend into Ngwala Village. From there, we merge with the Annapurna trail towards Manang. The journey continues to Yak Kharka and Thorong Phedi, an ideal resting point before the challenge of the Thorong La Pass, one of the world's most formidable mountain passes.
After conquering the pass, the next destination is Muktinath, a sacred site for both Hindus and Buddhists, known for its 108 water spouts and an eternal flame.
The trek then leads to Jomsom and the journey concludes with a return to Pokhara and then a drive back to Kathmandu.
