The Nar Phu valleys, regions of ethnically – Tibetan inhabitants, are graced with similarly towering snow peaks and unique culture. The trek up to Nar and Phu or Nar Phu Trekking combines high peaks and passes, glaciers, remote villages, narrow canyons, lovely forests, amazing rock formations, yaks, gompas, and unique Himalayan cultures. After 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 many 7000m peaks surrounding them. Along with spending plenty of time at these colorful and timeless villages, we explore the high alpine valleys above Nar Phu Trekking and then from Nar cross the Kang La to Ngawal on the upper Pisang route leading back into the Annapurna circuit.
