Nar Phu Valley trek is a great combination of two different villages Nar and Phu, which are almost a day’s walk away from one another. Nar is a bigger village among the two and is believed to have been captured by the “Khampas”, Tibetan refugees who settled their horde after taking control of the place. Though there are other villages also in the valley, Nar and Phu are much recognized and even though are undiscovered yet, they are growing into a popular trekking destination of Nepal.
Nar Phu Valley, on the north of Annapurna, offers you the taste of the Annapurna trek though is a restricted area still for some mere reasons. Nar and Phu villages have preserved the natural beauty, unique cultures, religious and typical village lifestyle of the native of the Annapurna region. A special permit will only allow you to explore the beauty of this place and to get yourself away to this hassle- free region of Nepal.
Nar Phu Valley was first explored by Tilman on 1950, which remained a mysterious and distant trek as it was still closed to the trekkers until 2002. The narrow canyons, massif rock formations, yak, ancient monasteries, awesome mountain views, alpine sceneries, Kanga la pass and unique culture are the sources of attraction of the place. The inheritance of Tibetan subculture and its remotely unique beauty make the Nar Phu valley, a masterpiece that yet needs to be discovered by many. The local resident, “Bhotias” with their amiable nature will make your journey a better one to the Nar Phu Valley.
The trek begins from Chamje and leads you through the wild and unveiled Dharapani, Koto, Meta and then to the Nar and Phu village. The absolute experience of pristine valley lost down the mountains, native lifestyle, the rocks and centuries old monasteries make you want to see and explore more and more. The trek is worth your time as everything in this region is fascinating enough and energizing as well to keep your spirit up for travelling farther.
