Nar Phu Valley Trek

Nar Phu Valley Trek

Nar Phu Valley Trek has only been a newly Opened hidden valley Restricted Trekking route and offers a very pristine cultural and scenic experience that’s all the more remarkable given its proximity to the famous and well-traveled Annapurna circuit. one among Nepal’s true hidden valleys, its rugged landscapes and ancient villages bordering on Tibet have lain in peaceful solitude for years from the surface world, with relatively few trekkers making the journey to at least one of the last truly untouched regions within the Himalayas.

Nar Phu Valley Trek begins properly at Besisahar and follows the stock route for the Annapurna Circuit through to Koto before branching away eastward towards Nar Phu valley. The trail leads along the Nar Khola River and thru a narrow gorge before arriving at the tiny settlement of Odar (which translates to ‘Cave’), a convenient point for a lunch stop at one among the newly constructed tea houses. From Odar the trail heads out through thickets of pine, rhododendrons, and bamboo, with the soothing delights of a thermal spring on the way to bath certain a refreshing break. From there we head to the picturesque village of Meta and its impressive landscapes and consider the monastery at Nar Phedi within the distance.

The following day’s journey to Phu offers a number of the foremost memorable and unspoiled views on the trek because the trail pass below the daunting slopes of Kangaru Himal and Chyakhu before winding on through the village of Kyang. Phu itself may be a remarkable and impressive village that seems the maximum amount a bastion against the forces of your time because of the harsh Himalayan elements, with a known history that dates back to a minimum of the 5th century. The structures are like building blocks set side by side and seemingly one on top of the opposite along the sloping hill at the guts of the village, creating the illusion of terraced fields of stone. Replete with the obligatory Mani walls, prayer wheels, and its own fascinating monastery, the village may be a storehouse of Tibetan culture frozen in time that intrigues and beguiles at every turn and stairway, particularly for photographers.
