Pokhara and Ghorepani Tour Overview

Highlights

Venture into a remote part of Nepal that few travelers get to see
Stay in ancient villages that have seen little change over the centuries
Experience a part of the Tibetan plateau that extends down into Nepal
Enjoy great views of Annapurna II, Himlung Himal, Gangapurna, Manaslu, and Tilicho Peak

Nar Phu Valley Trek is an exotic journey along the north face of Annapurna, to explore the fascinating valley of Nar Phu. The highlights of the trek include exotic views of high snow peaks, ancient villages of medieval Tibetan culture, the famous Tashi Lakhang Monastery, and exploring high alpine valleys. The trek starts from Jagat, which lies along the Annapurna Circuit trail and then leaves the main circuit trail from Koto to follow the less traveled trails to Nar Phu valley. Trekkers get to explore the remote mountain valley trails in the north of Manang and pass the Kang La pass (5315m) with breathtaking panoramic views of the Annapurna massif. Kang La Pass connects Nar to Manang and Bhotia villages in the Neyshang Valley. The trek heads to the west of Nar Phu Valley Trek to reach the highest elevation in the Annapurna Circuit trail, Thorong La Pass at 5416 m. Then the trekkers descend to the lower Mustang following the trails leading to holy Muktinath before heading to Jomsom.

The trek finally concludes at Jomsom following flights to Pokhara and then to Kathmandu. The trek to this secluded mountain valley offers an interesting understanding of medieval Tibetan culture in the region. Any trekker exploring this part of the world will cherish the natural, cultural, and historical heritage.

Pokhara and Ghorepani Tour Itinerary

Day 1
Nar Phu Valley Trek Tour
9 Hrs
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Guest House
Bus
2600 m

We leave Kathmandu early and drive first to Besisahar. After lunch, change to a four-wheel drive vehicle for the rugged journey to Koto. The road can be almost as challenging for passengers as for drivers, but it is incredibly scenic! It travels along the old Annapurna Circuit trek route, through amazing gorges and past stunning waterfalls. Arrive in Koto in time for dinner.
Day 2
Nar Phu Valley Trek Tour
7 Hrs
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Guest House
Walking
3560 m

Start our trek early, as there is a lot of distance to cover. Cross the river and enter the Nar & Phu valleys. Towns on the nearby Annapurna Circuit are relatively well developed, but this is not the case in these valleys. Todays trekking route passes through beautiful woods, past small cave shelters and pilgrims resting places. Emerging from a narrow canyon, the trail passes under a wide waterfall, from which point the woods become thinner and the vistas wider. The last stretch into Meta involves climbing a steep hill, from which there are amazing views of some of the giant snowy peaks in the area.
Day 3
Nar Phu Valley Trek Tour
6 Hrs
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Guest House
Walking
4080 m

Trekking out of Meta, some of the unique, colorful Tibetan Buddhist chortens that Nar and Phu are famous for begin to appear in sight. The trail meanders along the ridge with a good view of the magnificent Nar Phedi monastery, where you will stay in a few days time. After another ninety minutes hiking through scenic canyons and gorges, youll reach a monolith that guards the steep trail up to Phu. From Meta, you can get your first view of the three villages in the area as well as the old dzong (Tibetan-style fortress) and the remains of two ruined forts, impressively situated atop the flatlands before the village. Just before crossing the bridge into Phu, a line of wonderful chortens color the landscape. After a rest and refreshments, take a short walk up to the famous Tashi Lhakhang Gompa to pay respects to Lama Karma Sonam Rinpoche who came to Nepal with the Dalai Lama in 1959.
Day 4
Nar Phu Valley Trek Tour
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Guest House
4080 m

Due to the high altitude, its good to spend an acclimatization day in Phu. Explore the tiny alleyways of the town or hike up to Himlung Himal base camp. Phu itself is an interesting village, and a day is well spent sitting with the villagers as they spin their yak and sheep wool, pound mustard seeds into a paste for oil, or go about their other daily chores. For an extra challenge, the hike up to Himlung Himal base camp takes you through a glacial valley. The 7,125 m. peak was recently opened for climbing. On the trail up you will see herds of blue sheep skillfully clambering up the steep cliffs. The return trip takes about four to five hours.
Day 5
Nar Phu Valley Trek Tour
6 Hrs
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Guest House
Walking
3490 m

Retrace the route back down towards Meta, but turn off at the Nar Phedi monastery, which will be your accommodation for the night. In fact, the monastery is all that Nar Phedi consists of! The rooms are neat and clean and the nuns are extremely welcoming. Join them in the kitchen and watch them prepare dinner on a modest fireplace. At 5 pm they usually do a puja (blessing), which you are welcome to witness. There is a small donation box in the monastery where you can leave a contribution for the maintenance of this beautiful and friendly place.
Day 6

3 Hrs
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Guest House
Walking
4110 m

Today is a very gentle day. Climb out of Nar Phedi and follow a winding path up a hill towards Nar. Pass a line of wonderfully painted, bamboo-topped chortens on the way into the ancient village. Arrive in the town around lunch time. Even though Nar is not far from the main Annapurna trail, it is rarely visited by trekkers and is about as picturesque as it gets. Nar is bit more social and lively than Phu, and during the day you may find the village square teeming with chatting women with their back-strap looms weaving wool fabric for rugs and blankets. With a few new teahouses built on the outskirts of Nar, you can stay in a comfortable lodge with an extensive menu.
Day 7
Nar Phu Valley Trek Tour
8 Hrs
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Guest House
Walking
5240 m

Today is a long day, so get up before sunrise and head towards the Kang La pass, which leads back onto the popular Annapurna Circuit. It is not a difficult pass, but it can be a long day as the effects of altitude will be felt. Once on top of the pass you can enjoy an amazing view over Annapurna II, Gangapurna, and Tilicho Peak. The trail down starts off steep, but if you enjoy scree running you can have some fun! Stop for lunch on a plateau overlooking the peak, then continue towards Ngawal. Ngawal, on the upper Pisang route of the Annapurna Circuit, is certainly very different from the ancient villages just visited. The lodges are big, the menus much more comprehensive and there will be Wifi and phone signals in most lodges.
Day 8

8 Hrs
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Guest House
Walking / Jeep
3250 m

The weather gets much hotter and the scenery greener as you descend more than 2000m from the pass. Set off early for the last few hours of trekking to reach Pisang. The trail is wide and comfortable, and passes a beautiful lake just outside Pisang. Stop for a quick snack in the village, then take a four-wheel drive back to Besisahar. There, stay in a comfortable hotel.
