Difficulty of Nar Phu Trek/ How to Prepare for Nar Phu Trekking?
Due to its high elevation reaching above 5320 meters, the Nar Phu trek is considered challenging. Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) can be a potential risk during this journey; therefore, caution must be exercised. The terrain and landscape surrounding Nar Phu village are remote and isolated. The only means of transportation available are helicopters or horses. Throughout the traverse at higher altitudes, you will need to walk daily for around 5-6 hours. The trail itself consists of rough and uneven footpaths primarily used by mules and locals for their everyday tasks. Walking on such trails continuously can prove quite demanding each day.
Also, during the trek, you will be staying at tea houses that provide very basic modern amenities. You will have to adjust to the cold environment and rural lifestyle of the area during your 12 days of trekking in Nar Phu.
