Nar Phu Valley trek is combined with Annapurna Circuit trek. You will do two high passes Kang La (5320m) and Thorong La high passé (5416m) on this trek. The remote villages of Nar, Phu, Ngawal, Braka, Manang, Muktinath Hindu and Buddhist temple, Jomsom windy valley, interesting landscape, Monasteries and Himalaya’s cultures are another attraction of this trek.
Nar Phu Valley Trek starts 9 hours drive from Kathmandu Chamje via Besishahar. After 2 days walk from Chamje, you will reach in Koto. Koto is the gateway to Nar Phu Valley. We cross the bridge leading over the Marshyangdi River to the steep portals of the Nar Phu valley system is easily missed, but although the entrance is narrow and forested, the valley system above opens up to a huge expanse of high snow-peaks, ancient villages and high altitude grazing settlements. Trekkers until late 2002, very few westerners have explored these virtually untouched villages or climbed the many 7000m peaks surrounding it. We will venture into this remote region of Nar Phu valley. Buddhist pilgrims from around Nepal might accompany us up to Phu to visit the renowned Tashi Lhakhang Gompa. We are spending plenty of time at these interesting remote villages. From Nar village, we trek over the Kang La (5320m) pass. We will enjoy Himalayas view like Annapurna II, Gangapurna, Tilicho peak then join to Manang for Annapurna circuit trek. The village of Manang (3,500m/11483feet) marks the beginning of the next stage. The highest point of the trek is Thorong La pass (5416m / 17768 feet). The pass is marked by the Mani stone and prayer flags. As you reach the top, you are rewarded by the magnificent view from the top and then we walk down to Muktinath with amazing mountains. The sacred Muktinath temple has 108 waterfalls that resemble water flowing from taps; you will be free from the sin which you committed in your past life and mysterious natural gas fires that boggle the mind. Now we descend through Jharkot village, Kagbeni, Ekle Bhatti to Jomsom. Jomsom is the headquarters of Mustang district. It is one of the windiest valleys in Nepal. Every afternoon is guaranteed to be windy in the season.
