Until 2002 Nar Phu valley was closed to tourism, the Nar and Phu valleys are way remote than its neighboring Annapurna circuit in both time and space. The journey to Nar – Phu valley is a moment to remember throughout the life time, without doubt Nepal is a land of abundant surprise with variation of culture, religion practice and life style and Nar-Phu valley does the same, it provides us fantastic trek route that is least explored, located in the north of Annapurna. Even though its most of the trail is con-joint with Annapurna Circuit, to enter the Nar-Phu valley we require special permit (Restricted area permit), Most of the time referred as the hidden valley, we explore the remote village in different manner than what we have seen in the other part of Nepal’s trekking trail, the economy of the village is mainly based on Yak & Sheep herding, traditional stone-walled village still maintain the lifestyle un-touched for centuries.
Our trek starts from Khudi after a long drive from Kathmandu, our trek takes us to narrow gorges to medieval villages, past impressive Chortens, herds of blue sheep and spectacular cliffs side trails and over highest pass of the region. We can find abandoned settlements which was once used by Khampa rebels, we can expect to meet mountaineers who are heading to climb peaks in the area like Kang Garu, Himlung, Ratna Chuli. A tiny bridge over the Marshyangdi River the trail starts winding up from Koto and through narrow entrance passing thick forest we land into a whole new world of Nar & Phu valley. This trek requires a good fitness level and previous trekking experience, so that we won’t have tough time to walk over rock formations and glaciers.
While we experience the continuation of Tibetan culture and lifestyle in the valley, narrow canyons Buddhist monasteries at the same time we are also blessed to have those majestic views of mountains which includes Manaslu (8163m.) Dhaulagiri (8167m.) and Annapurna 1 (8091m.).
