A trek to Nar Phu requires a special permit as it is restricted by the government of Nepal but once you finish this trek, it will leave you and your group with some unforgettable memories. Explore the hidden valley isolated for centuries and witness some ancient forts, which are still sublime and untouched. The Nar Phu valley topography is a Trans Himalayan and similar to that of Tibet. Trials are still rugged that has changed little over the years. We spend few days in exploring this remote valley and cross the Kang La Pass (5300m) on the way to Manang.

This less trodden trail offer a more challenging and exciting to the popular Thorong La pass on the Annapurna Circuit trekking route. We take mountain flight to Pokhara to savour our exhilarating journey to Nar Phu valley and Tilicho lake trip.
