Closed to tourism until 2002, the Nar and Phu valley are far removed in both time and space from the neighboring Annapurna circuit. As you branch north up the Nar valley the flood of trekkers passing through manang turns to a tiny trickle. Yak herding and agriculture remain main-stays of the economy rather than tourism and the traditional atone- walled village seem to have maintained a lifestyle untouched for centuries.
The trek takes you up narrow gorges to medieval village , past impressive chorten, herds of blue sheep and spectacular cliff-side trails and over one of the regions ‘s highest trekking passes . You’ll pass abandoned settlements once used by khampa rebels and teams of mountaineers headed to the popular peaks of himlung , kang garu and Ratna Chuli.
The trek is an excellent adventurous addon to a visit to the Manang regions or the manaslu trek. After Nar- phu you could even continue to Jomsom, either over the thorung la or, if you are properly equipped, via tilicho lake and Meso Kanto La , making full use camping crew.
