Nar Phu Valley Trek - 17 Days

About Nar Phu Valley Trek

Nar Phu Valley Trek is a wild and adventurous journey in the remotest part of the Annapurna region. Nar Phu Valley Trekking was opened in 2003 and has only received a handful of foreign visitors over the year. As the region comes under the restricted area, you need to get special permission from the government of Nepal to go on the trek, which is also expensive. This is also one of the reasons other than isolation of the region that results in less tourist flow. Regardless of those factors, the trail is extremely unspoiled and pristine. 

The Nar Phu Valley Trek 17 Days combines crossing of high passes, remote mountain villages, suspension bridges, and lush forests. During the trek, you come across rich culture and practices of the locals, which is highly influenced by Tibetans. If you are looking for a less-crowded trail and raw experience then Nar Phu Valley Trek is the best option for you. You get to see breath-taking sceneries and Himalayan mountain views like Mt. Manaslu (8,156 m), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167 m), and Annapurna I (8,091 m), Mt. Gangapurna (7,455 m), Tilicho Peak (7,134 m), etc.
