Nar Phu Valley Trek is a lesser known, beautiful trail north of Annapurna. This region remains untouched by modern civilization and mass tourism. Often referred to as the ‘’hidden valley trek’, Nar and Phu valley offer a spiritual trekking experience with numerous villages of Tibetan heritage and undisturbed religious sites. People here herd yaks, trade with lower regions and harvest indigenous medicinal herbs for livelihood. Our 19-day-long Nar Phu Valley Trek starts with a sightseeing tour of some of Kathmandu’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Then, we drive to Jagat, a quintessential teahouse village in the Annapurna circuit.
We follow the Annapurna circuit trek trail till Koto and branch off from there to Nar Phu Valley on a rugged, enthralling trail. We have set aside day 8 and day 10 for acclimatization which is crucial to adjust your body to high altitude. Apart from the valley of Nar and Phu, crossing Kang La Pass (5,315 m) is another major highlight of the trek. The pass rewards us with spectacular views of Annapurna II (7937m), Tilicho Peak (7134m) and Gangapurna (7455m). The Kang La pass connects Nar valley with Manang district and three other ethnic Bhotia villages of Neyshang valley. A huge stretch of high snow-peaks, grazing settlements, and ancient villages make Nar and Phu valley the gem of Annapurna.
We gradually climb down from the Kang La pass to Thorong La pass and ultimately to Jomsom via lower Mustang. We fly from Jomsom to Pokhara and finally head back to Kathmandu the next day. Nar Phu Valley Trek is ideal for those who have a special interest in remote communities and their age-old ways of life. If you are looking for a short, easy and fun-filled trek in the Annapurna region, Adventure Club Trek also offers Annapurna Circuit Trek Short-14 Days and Annapurna Circuit Trek-21 Days.
Flight Delay in Jomsom
Twin Otter is the primary mode of transport from the airstrip at Jomsom. This service is fairly dependable. Sometimes, flights may be cancelled due to mountain weather conditions or other technical problems. In such case, Adventure Club Trek will organize the alternative available road transportation to ensure you are on schedule for your international flight. The expense of the road transport will be managed from the reimbursement received from the flight ticket after the deduction of cancelation charge. So please note that there will be no refund of the flight from Jomsom to Pokhara, if the alternative road transportation is consolidated.
Note: Your safety is of the utmost concern whilst you are travelling with Adventure Club Trek. We will make every effort possible to follow the original itinerary but we reserve the right to change that itinerary if a segment of it becomes a safety issue. Certain mountain regions are remote, natural disasters can happen, weather conditions can decline and there can be illness or an injury. To avoid dangerous situations we may occasionally have to make changes to the itinerary to ensure everyone’s safety. That having been said, Adventure Club Trek will strive to provide you with the best possible trekking experience and to keep your safety our number one priority. We thank you for your understanding.
Pre-Trip Meeting :
Prior to all our treks and expeditions, we host a Pre-Trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce them to other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. We believe that pre-trip meeting is very important in order to better preparation of the trekking.
Best Time to Trek to Nar Phu Valley:
Best months are September, October & November during the Autumn season and after mid March, April & May during the spring season are consider as the best seasons for doing this trek. Regarding monsoon season at summer time we do not suggest to try this route from June till August. But at autumn months weather is perfect: there is no rain, and it is warm enough.
