Nar Phu with Annapurna circuit trek (26 days)

Nar phu valley trekking is probably the best trek of Annapurna region. Nar-Phu is situated in the high remote region towards the east of Mustang, adjoining Tibet. The trek takes you to the heart of Nar-Phu. The region is wild and largely uninhabited. There are only a few flat-roofed Tibetan-style villages along the valley and ancient fortresses built on the rock. You can find some of the oldest Buddhist and Bon Po temples in this region along with magic cove in the Himalayas.

Exploring the valley to the north, visiting Phu village situated on the edge, you travel south to Nar Village. The valley along with the Thoche village is surrounded by Peri Himalaya to the north, Gangla and Kangguru to the east and Damodar Himalaya to the west. Despite the prosperity of the other area in Manang, people in this valley have remained untouched until now. Their dialect is different from others and they have not left their nomadic tradition.

This is a trek that combines high peaks and passes, glaciers, remote villages, narrow canyons, lovely forests, amazing rock formations, yaks, gompas and unique Himalayan cultures. Trekking the standard Annapurna circuit, the bridge leading over the Maryland River to the steep portals of the Nar/Phu valley system is easily missed, but although the entrances 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. Two long days of walking from the border of Tibet, Tilman first explored this region in 1950s. Closed to trekkers until late 2002, very few westerners have explored these virtually untouched villages or climbed the many 7000-meters peak surrounded it.
