20 Reviews

Narphu Valley Trek is one of the newly opened trekking routes of Annapurna region which was opened for the first time in 2003 A.D. the trekking to the Narphu valley will lead us to the remote and exotic part of Nepal where people of Tibetan community used to live densely. During the trek, trekkers can get the marvelous and undisturbed view of the mountain from the different viewpoint. The trekking route is regarded as the best trekking route for those trekkers who have proper time and possess sound health and mind to view and to enjoy the remote but beautiful scene of the surrounding. A rough and tough walk through the trail will lead us to the land of Narphu valley. The Narphu valley is untouched by modernity, which will be definitely interesting and enthusiastic while trekking. Most of the people residing here are engaged in sheep and yak herding and farming. The trekking to this region will give us some glances of trekking at Tibet as the landscapes of both these places are same.

The trekking to Nar-Phu valley begins from Syange following the famous trail of Annapurna circuit trek. We need to pass various passes like Masokanto La (5099m), Kangla pass (5200m) and Tilicho pass (5230m) through the unbeaten trail. From the passes, we can view the most panoramic and undisturbed view of Annapurna mountain. Narphu valley trekking route is a non-touristed area so; we will meet only the local people here. There are about 300 inhabitants at Narphu village. The valley is the trading route of Nepal with Tibet. Being, a non-touristic and remote area, we need a better guide who have more knowledge of the valley while trekking in this region. A One Nepal Trek will arrange the procedures of trekking according to the wish of the trekkers with better guides.
