24 days Nar Phu Valley & Annapurna Trek

The Nar and Phu valleys are newly opened spectacular regions of ethnically-Tibetan inhabitants. This is a trek that combines remote villages, narrow canyons, lovely forests, amazing rock formations, yaks, gompas and unique Himalayan cultures. Trekking the standard Annapurna circuit, the bridge leading over the Marshyangdi River to the steep portals of the Nar Phu valley system is easily missed, but although the entrance is narrow and forested, the valley system above opens up to a huge expanse of high snow-peaks, ancient villages and high altitude grazing settlements.

Closed to trekkers until late 2002, very few westerners have explored these virtually untouched villages or climbed the many 7000m peaks surrounding it. We will venture into this remote region of upper Manang, staying at the winter settlement of Nar, and visit one of the most unvisited and most interesting regions in the Tibetan Buddhist world.
