Narphu Valley Trekking

Narphu Valley Trekking! Tilicho Trekking

This is probably the best trek of Annapurna region if you are looking for something a little different.  Nar Phu lies within a hidden valley the trek is challenging with high passes like Masokanto La (5099m), Kangla pass (5200m) & Tilicho Pass (5230m) that provides a tremendous view of beautiful Lake Tilicho. From the Kangla pass at 5200m the magnificent panoramic view of Annapurna massif appears remote and forbidding. The Nar-Phu valley lies above the tree line on the upper limits of cultivation, in the very north of Manang district. It takes five hours to reach the pass that links Nar with Manang and three other Bhotia villages in the Nyershang down valley.

Nar Phu Valley TrekkingNowadays, Nar Phu has about 300 inhabitants who depend on livestock. Unlike most Bhotia people whose trading patterns changed drastically after the Nepali Government closed borders with Tibet, the people of Nar and Phu valley were least affected by this change. The tortuous path leading from the valley into Tibet was never dependent on the salt trade like most other settlements and until today yak herding is the basis of their livelihood. The Nepal government's recent decision to open up Nar and Phu to tourists has evoked little enthusiasm among the villagers, whose pastoral lifestyle continues. Apart from the odd researcher and climbing expeditions permitted to climb Him lung, Ratnachuli and Gachikang, few foreigners have visited the area and the tourism infrastructure is almost non-existent. Since Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) recently extended its network to include Nar and Phu Valley, it has been preparing a suitable tourism development plan at the request of the government for this undiscovered valley.
