Overview

Nar Phu Valley Trek is a journey into the isolated valley that connects Nar and Phu in the Manang district. The trail follows the ancient trade route between Nepal and Tibet. While still in the popular Annapurna region, this ‘off-the-beaten-path’ trek leads us away from the busier trails in the area and into a glacial valley that seems undisturbed by time.  Nestled in the Himalayas are the remote villages of Nar Phu, which with their unique cultural heritage, architecture, and surrounding landscape will give you an unforgettable experience.

During the Nar Phu Valley Trek, we explore villages similar to ones in the Tibetan Plateau region. We will be exposed to the traditional pastoral lifestyle of the villages. Populated by Tibetan Buddhists, Nar and Phu are sacred valleys with monasteries, Chortens, mani walls, and fluttering prayer flags along the trail. TheTashi Lakhang Monastery and the recently built Satek Gumba " Monastery" in the remote area is certainly worth a visit. In addition to the intriguing and lovely culture and the already impressive Himalayan peaks, we will see incredible rock formations, glaciers, canyons, and forests throughout the Nar Phu Valley Trek.

After departing from Kathmandu to Besishar and Dharapani, we begin our journey from Dharapani after walking 20 minutes we follow the ancient trekking trail to Odar village. The trail to Odar leads uphill for 40 minutes with an amazing view of Mt.Manaslu and Himalchuli. Odar Village is a little beautiful Gurung cultural settlement with 20-30 houses. The first several days are characterized by diverse forests and various suspension bridges over rushing waters.  Upon reaching the Nar Phu valley, we feel an unexplainable feeling of joy and energy, as we are surrounded only by the mountains. Our Nar Phu Valley trek will be separate from Koto village and we follow Nar Khola and narrow gorge to Meta village. After Meta village, the Nar Phu Valley offers an amazing view of wide alpine landscape and Annapurna II and Iv. Phu village takes us back to the 5th century. The ancient houses are connected to each other and located at the lap of a mountain. Nar village is also quite similar to the Phu village. It is also located on the lap of a mountain and there is a big farmland at the bottom of the village. Which looks very beautiful with very buckwheat flowers. The overnight at Satek Gumba with monks will give a lifetime experience for all the trekkers of Nar Phu valley trek.

The cultural fascinations are accompanied by the breathtaking Himalayan panoramas of  AnnapurnaII (7937m), Annapurna III (7555m), Annapurna IV (7525m), Gangapurna (7455m), Dhaulagiri (8167m)and several others as we cross the Kang la Pass (5320m). This pass separates the villages Nar and Phu.  After several hours in awe at the high alpine territory, our trail connects to the Annapurna Circuit Trek via Kang La Pass(5320m). After descending from the pass, we stop at Ngwal Village, a beautiful Village located just opposite of Annapurna Himalayan Range. The next day drives to Besishar and continues back to Kathmandu. For those who are looking for the majestic mountain peaks combined with a fascinating Tibetan cultural experience in the Annapurna region without the crowds of the Annapurna Circuit or Annapurna Base Camp Treks, the Nar Phu Valley Trek is the go-to.

The Nar Phu Valley Trek lies in a restricted area of Nepal, so you need to get a special trekking permit, which is included in the cost of the trek. Additionally, international trekkers must go with a licensed guide from a government registered trekking agency. Until recently, the Nar Phu Valley Trek was a camping trek, however, now there are teahouse accommodations along the way. If you would like to camp instead, we can arrange for that.

When is the Best time for Nar Phu Valley Trek?

The best times to take the Nar Phu Valley Trek is during autumn (September-November) and spring (March-May) and monsoon (June-August)! The only time that we do not recommend taking the Nar Phu Valley Trek is during the winter, as the weather is extremely cold and snow can prevent you from being able to cross the Kang La pass. 

This trail is located behind the Annapurna and Manaslu Himalayan ranges. The landscape is quite similar to Tibet’s, so there is very little rainfall, even in the monsoon season. For this reason, the Nar Phu Valley Trek is a perfect one to do during the monsoon and offers very colorful scenery with rare Himalayan flowers. Overall, May to September is the best time for flower lovers! Also during monsoon season, people from the villages have more spare time. They’ve finished their work for the season and have more time to relax. So, this is the period when many people celebrate their marriage ceremonies and other special social festivals.

September offers a gorgeous view of the Himalayas with few clouds in the sky. The land is still beautifully dotted with colorful alpine flowers. October and November are the best months for clear skies, providing the best mountain views. March, April, and May also present crisp views of the Himalayas and have the best temperatures for hiking. This time is the warmest period in the Himalayas, so you can enjoy our time in the Himalayas without being uncomfortably cold. 

Nar Phu Valley Trek is possible to do in the winter (December-January) if you can enjoy the cold temperatures and aren’t afraid of trudging through the snow. If you would like to trek during the winter, we will provide the proper gear necessary for that. 

Is the Nar Phu Valley Trek difficult? 

Short answer: No! This trip is not difficult at all if you have basic walking habits. It is just a long hike on a mid-altitude Himalayan trail. Every day we walk about 10-15 kilometers, and some days up to 20 kilometers. The trekking trail is well-maintained by the local so it is safe to walk on. The trip to the two villages (Nar and Phu) is so beautiful. The journey from Koto to Meta is a long way but is totally doable. The path to Phu is also a long one, but by the time you reach that day, your body will be used to it. The acclimatization day in Phu, with the hike up to Phu Viewpoint, physically and mentally prepares you for the rest of the trek. The whole trek (minus a small section after the Kangla Pass) is on a well-maintained, human-made trail that is accessible to anyone with moderate trekking experience. It is recommended to have some prior trekking experience, but otherwise, the trail is not too difficult.

Nar Phu Valley Trek Cost/Price

The cost of your Nar Phu Valley Trek depends on the services you choose. The listed price covers all the costs of the Nar Phu Valley Trek on a sharing-basis Jeep transportation. All your meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) are included in the cost of the package, though if you would like to have extra chocolates, snacks, beer, etc., those are not included in the cost of the package. If you take the private 4 wheeler luxury Jeep to Chamche and on your trek back from Ngwal, the price of the trek will slightly more expensive. If you want to spend an extra day or two exploring in Nar or Phu village, the price will increase as days are added. Also, some guest houses, especially in high altitude areas, may charge extra for charging your camera/phone batteries. If you would like to take a hot shower, that is possible in some places, but it also requires an extra fee that is not included in the package price. We are transparent as possible with you about what is included/excluded from the package so that there are no misunderstandings. When you book with Breeze Adventure, there are no hidden costs or extra fees to worry about.

Nar Phu Valley Trekking Permit cost

Nar Phu Valley is considered a restricted area. Trekkers need a TIMS (Trekkers’ Information Management Systems) card, an ACAP (Annapurna Conservation Area Permit), as well as a special trekking permit from the Nepal government. This permit can only be acquired from registered trekking companies in Nepal. Therefore, to do the Nar Phu Valley Trek, you must have both permits.

Strangely enough, the cost of the restricted area permit depends on when you would like to trek. So, from September to November, the cost is $100 USD per week, and from December to August, the cost is $75 USD per week. The Annapurna Conservation Area Permit is $30 USD, and the TIMS card is $10 USD. You should plan to spend around $280 USD for two people, but believe us that the cost of the permits is small compared to the joy that the Nar Phu Valley Trek will bring you.

There are several tourist checkpoints on this trek. One is at the beginning of the trip to Besishar, one in Manang, and one at the ending point of the Manaslu Circuit trail in Dharapani. Before we enter Nar Phu Valley we need to show our permit in Koto at the tourist checkpoint. There is also one permit check post in Meta, which will soon be shifting to Kyang village, as the main administrative office is in this village.

Is Altitude Sickness possible on this Trek?

Altitude sickness is very unlikely on the Nar Phu Valley Trek. You will not spend a night above 4000 meters. The highest point you reach in Kangla Pass (5320 meters/17,454 feet), but only a few moments are spent there, so you are not facing a high risk of altitude sickness. That being said, some are more sensitive to the variations in elevation than others. Our team is highly experienced in the case of high altitude sickness and are properly trained to help you. At the onset of symptoms, our guides will take you to lower elevation as quickly as possible. You should not worry, though, we have built-in acclimatization days to prevent altitude sickness from happening.

Can we fly out of Humde Airport? 

Before the road to Manang was built, there was a weekly flight from Humde to Pokhara. The flights stopped in 2011 because the total airport was not well constructed; it was just a normal gravel road. After 2011, the Nepal government started the renovation of the airport and built a nicer runway. However, now there are no flights because people opt for the cheaper option of driving to Manang village by Jeep, while the Nepal government is still pushing for airports in the more rural areas in the Himalaya. 

Can I extend my trip to Tilicho Lake and Thorong La Pass?

Yes of course! If you have enough time and want to join the popular Annapurna Circuit trail also known as the Apple pie trail in Nepal, we recommend you do so! You would have a great experience of crossing two high passes: Kangla and Thorong La Pass. Also, if you have time and want to see the beautiful Tilicho Lake, we can arrange a Tilicho Lake day trip. The ultimate trek would combine both Tilicho Lake and Thorong La Pass with the underrated Nar Phu Valley Trek. After crossing the Kangla Pass, the trail joins the Annapurna Circuit. Visit Tilicho Lake and then Yak Kharka, where you prepare to traverse the Thorong La Pass (5400 meters). You’ll have a leg-up on other trekkers in terms of acclimatization, making the second high pass a walk in the park. So, why not get the best of both worlds? Combine the hidden gem of the Nar Phu Valley with the legendary Annapurna Circuit ( Apple Pie Trail in Nepal) and create the adventure of a lifetime!

Can I trek solo into the Nar Phu Valley?

No, solo travelers are not allowed to take the Nar Phu Valley Trek or any restricted area treks in Nepal. Nepal's government does not give permits for solo travelers in restricted areas. These permits require at least two trekkers and a government-registered guide. 

In the case that you are only one person, but would still like to do this trek with a registered guide, you can pay the other ‘ghost permit,’ as if there was another trekker with you. It is doable but would cost you double the permit fee.  We hope soon our government will change the policy soon, so more people can discover the beauty of the Nar Phu Valley, but until then, you must travel with a registered guide.

Trip note

Safety Tips for the Nar Phu Valley Trek

Overall, the Nar Phu Valley trail is safe and secure. The biggest concern in terms of safety is altitude sickness, and even that risk is very low. Some parts of the trail are a bit narrow and you’ll have to pass local porters who carry heavy loads and can’t always see us, so it’s always best to stay in a safe place and let them pass ahead. Also, you will cross lots of donkeys and yaks on the trail. While you pass them, you must be on the inside, away from the corner/edge, especially if there is a steep drop-off. If you stay on the cliffside, the donkey might push you off, causing injury. When you see yaks on the trail, please don’t go too close for the picture, they have been known to attack people, so keep a safe distance. 

How is the Accommodation during this Trek?

Accommodation on the Nar Phu Valley Trek is improving year by year. You used to have to camp on this trail, but now there are guesthouses at each stop. Please don’t expect luxurious guesthouses accommodation, as all of them are very simple with beds and blankets in each room. In the High season, you might have to share a room with other trekkers. In Meta, there is a newly built guesthouse with basic services, and the same goes for Kyang and Phu. Most of the guesthouses have a common bathroom (on sharing basis). The accommodation at Satek Gompa is a bit nicer, though the bathroom is still on a sharing basis. After you cross the Kangla Pass and walk down to Ngwal village, the accommodation will be a special reward. After the basic rooms in the Nar Phu Valley, Ngwal is a step up, with nicer rooms and an attached bathroom. In conclusion, if you are used to trekking or are willing to sacrifice a little bit of comfort for the beauty of the Himalaya, then you will not be disappointed. 

How are Food and Beverage during the Trip?

Food on the Nar Phu Valley Trek is amazing! You will love the tasty vegetables, which are mostly grown locally. What you get may depend on the season. From May to October, you can enjoy the local foods, such as Sherpa stew, dhindo, roti, Dal Bhat, etc. As winter approaches, the weather gets slightly colder and cloudier, so the more of the vegetables are brought in from other villages (though still tasty). In each guesthouse, there are usually western options as well, such as pizza, macaroni, fried noodles, pasta, etc. There are also candy bars, bottled soda, beer, etc. in every village. Most of the locals drink Tibetan tea, which is made of butter, salt, and wheat flour. You should try it at least once while your there, but if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, you can also order black tea, green tea, milk tea, etc. Trying the local Himalayan dishes is always a memorable part of the trek. 

Trekking Trail on Nar Phu Valley Trek

The trekking trail is lengthy, but very safe and maintained all the way to Phu village these days. Just this year, the local community has built another trail along the way. Remember, while hiking tries to remain on the inside of the trail because there are more loose stones on the edge. The path after the Kangla Pass is a bit steep down for about 30 minutes, but it is safe, especially if there is no snow. We recommend using hiking poles throughout the trek, just to help with balance and take some weight off your knees and ankles. 

Transportation before and after the Trek

The transportation to and from the Nar Phu Valley trailhead is by road. Normally, we take a Tourist bus ride to Besisahar and take a jeep to Chyamche or Dharapani as per your itinerary. The Nar Phu Valley cannot be accessed by road, but the Nepal government is planning to change that. They are currently building a road to Meta village. The main source of transportation from village to village for locals is by horse, donkey, or yak. After finishing the trip, we take a jeep ride from Ngwal to Besisahar again. As previously mentioned, there is an airport in Humde village, but flights have not begun yet. 

is not connected by road. But soon it is going to be connected. People and the Nepal government are building the road to Meta village. The main transportation of the Nar Phu villagers is Horse, Donkey, and Yaks. After finishing the trip we take jeep ride from Ngwal to Besishar again. There is an Airport at the Humde Village but not any flights yet. 

Acclimatization Days on Nar Phu Valley Trek

Acclimatization is the process of letting our body become friendly with the high altitude and low oxygen level. There are one and a half days of acclimatization built into our itinerary. If you have extra time and want to spend some extra time in Nar and Phu village, you can surely add another day or two to the trek. This will let you get closer to the locals and makes the rest of the trail easier for your body. Although the trail leads high into the Himalaya, you will not be spending any nights over 4000 meters, so the one day in Phu village and the half-day in Nar village will be enough for you to acclimatize. 

How are the Guides and Porters?

Our Guides and porters are very dedicated to their job and have a wonderful time in the Himalaya. For many, trekking in the Himalaya is their dream job, though they still take it seriously. The package cost includes food, beverage, and insurance for both the porter and guide. Our guides, with their years of experience of trekking in the Himalaya, will make your trip successful. Also, we are very respectful of our porters. They earn a livable wage, while happily carrying your bags and enjoying the Himalayas. Our responsible and dedicated team will bring you success on your Nar Phu Valley Trek.

Do I need Travel Insurance?

We recommend having travel insurance before going on Nar Phu valley trekking. We do our best to take care of you, but if something happens that is out of our control. In the case of os a medical emergency, leading to helicopter evacuation, it is best to have insurance. You are unable to obtain medical insurance in Nepal and must do so in your home country. Be sure that your insurance covers accidents aboard and high in the Mountain.

    Off the beaten Track-AMAZING

    When I first got in touch with Kishwor I told him that my mother and I were looking for a trek that was the moderate length, minimal people and culture. It had been my dream to go trekking in Nepal since I was a little kid I was putting a lot of faith in Kishwor considering it was my "trip of a lifetime". What he delivered us FAR exceeded anything id ever imagined. Given what we were looking for, Kishwor presented us with the Nar Phu Valley trek itinerary he had made. After some brief independent research, we decided it looked pretty good so we signed up. From even before we got there, Kishwor had everything taken care of. He had packing lists sent to us. Updates on trail and weather conditions ahead of time. Once we arrived Hotel, food, even going through our gear with us to make sure we had it all sorted. The trek: I won't be able to adequately convey how amazing a trek the Nar Phu Valley was in a few words. To summarize it in a sentence or two though; we hiked through just about every terrain Nepal has to offer - allowing us to really appreciate the depth the country has to offer in culture and environment. Simple but comfortable tea houses, only seeing a handful of other trekkers the full 9 days on the trail meant the tea houses welcomed us to cozy up beside the kitchen fire to eat dinner while they went about their daily routine. The farther we got into the Himalayas the more beautiful snow-capped mountains we encountered- really solidifying to us that this trek has everything we could ask for. As much as the actual trek itself was amazing, having Kishwor with us- SO knowledgeable and engaged in mountain life- made the trip what it was. So many laughs were shared and interesting conversations had while we were trekking that I never once considered listening to my earphones while walking 6-8 hours for 9 straight days. (which, as a millennial in 2019 means, means a lot) The Nar Phu valley trek doesn't boast the iconic mountain ranges places like Everest do but when you haven't run into another traveler in 4 days and you're sitting beside a fire watching the sun come up over a snow-capped peak, drinking a cup of warm masala tea listening to a monk saying prayers in the distance- what more could you ask for? Pros/ Highlights: Day spent in Phu, staying at the monastery, good footing on trails Cons: Long days hiking- We loved this and enjoyed the challenge but a reasonable level of fitness is required to enjoy it I believe. P.S. Don't eat the dried apples you can buy in some of the villages (Food poisoning at 4000m elevation is THE WORST)- thankfully kishwor made sure I was taken good care of until I was better, checking my oxygenation on an SPO2 monitor regularly and getting some calories into me so I was able to continue the trek happily!

    Amazing Nar and Phu Villages!!

    We had a great time in the secret village Nar and Phu in 2019 April! I found this trek is a perfect combination of Nature, culture, and Adventure! I hadn’t expected the beautiful two villages in the high Himalaya! The people from Nar and Phu village were amazing! Always speaks with a smile and happy faces. Thank you for our superb guide Chiri and Mangal Porter. We had a great time with you guys. I highly recommend Nar Phu Valley Trek with Breeze Adventure for your successful holiday in Nepal. They organize A to Z for your Holiday in Nepal. After the trip, we had a couple of days and Manager kishwor designed a perfect Chitwan National Park tour for us! Which was unexpected for us. Thank you Kishwor and all Breeze Adventure Team. See you again for DAL BHAT!

    Amazing Nar Phu Vallay Trek with Breeze Adventure!

    When I got contact with Breeze Adventure for Nar Phu Valley Trek, the Manager Mr. KIshwor wrote me an email with all the detailed and latest information about the Nar Phu Valley trek. He knows every step of Nar Phu Valley Trek and knows lots of local people from the village. I was expecting a 40+ man as a manager of Breeze Adventure but I was surprised to see a young guy at Breeze Adventure! He told us that  He started to work as a porter when he was  15 years old and worked as a guide for +12 years! That’s why he was able to answer all of my questions with the latest updated information about the trip. He is a mountain man and he keeps updates with the trekking trail very often. I recommend contacting him for any adventure in Nepal. He can organize the best trek for you and provide all the latest information about the trekking trail in the Himalaya. Thank you Kishwor for organizing a great Nar Phu Valley trek for us. And thank you a lot to our Guide Dorje and porter Mangal for your amazing time in the Himalaya. Mangal! Keep your sweet smile until I  come back for Kanchenjunga South Base Camp Trek!
