A rough, tough and wild trek, this trek takes you to the exotic Nar Phu valley that lies in the remote corner of the Annapurna region. Opened to visitors only in the year 2003, the Nar Phu valley remains untouched by modernity. The inhabitants, who roughly comprises of about 350 Nepalese Tibetans, have retained their age-old practices that go back to the times of Genghis Khan. Most of them are engaged in yak herding and farming.

Unlike other regions of Nepal, trekking in the region of Nar and Phu you will observe that the landscape is similar to that of Tibet. You will enjoy the delightful sights of quaint Tibetan villages, astounding rock formations, high altitude grazing settlements, narrow canyons, deep forests and towering snow clad peaks during your trek to the Nar and Phu valley.

The trail follows a rugged path as you explore the quaint Tibetan villages of Nar and Phu, cross the Kang La Pass, take the less traveled route to Tilicho Lake and the Meso Kanta Pass (5089m) which links the Manang and Kali Ghandaki valley. This traversing of the pass provides you a more challenging and interesting & challenging alternative to the popular Thorung La pass on the Annapurna Circuit.

This trek also offers super views of the Annapurna massif, Lamjung Himal, Machhapuchhre Himal, Manaslu Himal, Dhaulagiri range and Tilicho peak. As this trekking route is frequented by very few trekkers due to its tough, but great trails & its low scale promotion; you can wonderfully look ahead for a 'just the mountains, nature & us' experience.
