The Nar Phu valleys, regions of ethnically – Tibetan inhabitants, grace with similarly towering snow-peaks and unique culture. The trek up to Nar and Phu combines high peaks and passes, glacier, remote villages, narrow canyons, lovely forests, amazing rock formations, yaks, gompas and unique Himalayan cultures. Two long days of walking from the border of Tibet, this region was first explored by Tilman in the 1950s. Closed to trekkers until late 2002, very few westerners have explored these virtually untouched villages or climbed the manu 7000m peaks surrounding it. Along with spending plenty of time at these colorful and timeless villages, we explore the high alpine valleys above Phu and then from Nar cross the Kang La to Ngawal on the upper Pisang route leading back into the Annapurna circuit.
