Discover the out of sight valley of Nar Phu along the "off the beaten path" crossing in the course of challenging high passes of Kang La, Meso Kanto and the World highest Tilicho Lake. Nar Phu Valley is a natural and original Tibetan village located north of Annapurna which is restricted area and newly opened for the trekkers only since 2003.This trek is perfect for travelers who want to explore the Annapurna area as well as explore an untouched valley. This trek takes you to the interesting Nar Phu valley that lies in the remote corner of the Annapurna region. The Nar Phu valley remains untouched by modernity. Trekking in the area is unlike most of Nepal as the terrain is Trans Himalayan and similar to that of Tibet. Trails are rugged and at times cut high into side of the cliff, in an area that has changed little over the years. We spend a number of days exploring the region and visit the remote villages of Nar and Phu, as well as crossing the Kang La Pass(5310m) which offers fantastic views of the Annapurna massif, Lamjung Himal, Machhapuchhre Himal and Manaslu Himal. Then another attraction is the world’s highest lake Tilicho and trek over Meso Kanto pass(5099m).
The Route Nature.
The route originally follows the well-known Annapurna Circuit as far as Koto before heading into the formerly controlled wilds of Nar Khola Valley. We spend a number of days exploring the region and visit the remote villages of Nar and Phu, as well as crossing the Kang La Pass. The route then rejoins the Annapurna Circuit, near Manang, from where we follow the little-used route that leads to Tilicho Lake and the Meso Kanto Pass (5089m), which links the Manang and Kali Gandaki Valleys. The crossing of this pass offers a more challenging and exciting alternative to the popular Thorong pass on the Annapurna Circuit. After the crossing, we trek to Jomsom from where we fly back to Pokhara en route back to Kathmandu.
