Jours: 16 / Difficulté: 4 of 5 (Intense)

Nar Phu Valley Trek combined Annapurna Circuit is one of the most adventurous treks in the remotest parts of the Himalayas which features beautiful panorama along with diverse culture. While Nar Phu Valley is one of the least visited trekking routes, Annapurna Circuit is one of the popular trekking trails in Nepal. So, Nar Phu Valley Trek combined Annapurna Circuit allows you to experience both the isolated and the crowded sides of the Nepal Himalayas. 

Nar Phu Valley Trek combines the villages of Nar and Phu which are the remotest regions in Manang district. The trek requires a special restricted area permit from the Government of Nepal. The trek begins from Jagat and continues with the entry to the restricted areas of Koto, Meta, Phu, Nar, and Ngawal, and joins the Annapurna Circuit to end at the windy city of Jomsom via Thorong La Pass (5416m), the highest mountain pass in Nepal. The trek crosses many remote villages with diverse culture. The trek also features the last monastery constructed by Lama Karma Sonam Rimpoche, Tashi Lhakhang Gompa, in Phu valley. The magnificent vista of Annapurna range, Dhaulagiri range, Gangapurna (7455m), Tilicho Peak (7134m), Himlung Himal (7126m), and the other Himalayas is another highlight of this trek. The trek goes through lush Himalayan forests of rhododendron, pine, juniper, and fir, and stumbles across many Buddhist monasteries, stupas, and Chortens, en route. The trek also features the sacred temple of Muktinath which is equally important to Buddhists, Hindus, and Bons. The temple is the perfect example of religious tolerance seen in Nepal. The trekkers will also come across beautiful waterfalls, free-flowing streams, lush meadows, rocky ridges, and steep trails throughout the trek. Nar Phu Valley Trek combined Annapurna Circuit enables the trekkers to glance through the life of people leaving in the inaccessible part of the world.
