Description

Nar Phu Valley Trek is a perfect trekking trail towards western Nepal for experiencing off the beaten track in Nepal which combines remote village of  Nar and Phu. Nar Phu Valley is heaven on earth for adventure lovers in the Himalayas. Leaving hustling and bustling of city life and comforts of your home, walking beside the spectacular Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains here feels always special. This trek leads you to two scenic high passes of Kang-La 5,240m  & Thorang-La Pass 5,416m with everlasting time on this high altitude adventure with beautiful panorama of high mountains that never been seen on other areas of Himalayas.

We start this trek from Besisahar which is the traditional starting point of the Annapurna Circuit Trek. The trek quickly diverges from routes with more traffic area and into the remote Nar & Phu valleys.

This trek is definitely worth to try if you love true adventure and off the beaten path trek.
