Nar Phu and Annapurna Circuit

Category:

                       Located at the restricted region of Nar-Phu valley, Nar-Phu valley trek is one of the rare and privileged trek . Lying on the most remote side of Manang, only a purchased permit service is accessible for visiting this place. Snow covered up the entire region during the time of winter, thus the trek and exploration is only possible during the other seasons. The two valleys of Nar and Phu are the main highlights along with the canyons, the dense deep forests, the waterfalls, suspension bridges, the two famous passes Kangla Pass and Thorong La Pass and none other than the Himalayan ranges.

With the exploration and sightseeing our journey begins around the UNESCO world heritage sites in Kathmandu valley. The trek starts on the third day from Jagat. The sceneries are so mesmerizing where the trails are rough, rugged, winding throughout the journey. The Buddhist monasterieschortens, the prayer flags along the trail makes one feel like traveling through the Tibetan region.  The Muktinath temple will also appear on the middle of our journey. It is believed that a person gets salvation upon visiting the temple. The final scenic flight to Pokhara allows one to enjoy the view of the Himalayan ranges and the beautiful Pokhara valley. At the end of the trip at Pokhara, some of your time can be utilized by sightseeing around the various lakes and used to rest and relax. Since the normal Annapurna Circuit has been easily accessed by motorable roads, Nar Phu Valley trek can be a good replaceable trail to enjoy the trek along the countryside of Nepal.
