Nar-Phu Valley Trek

Nar-Phu Valley Trek

Nar Phu currently has about 300 inhabitants who depend on livestock, unlike most Bhotia people, whose trading patterns changed drastically after the Nepali Government closed borders with Tibet. The people of Nar and Phu Valley were least affected by this change.

Nar Phu currently has about 300 inhabitants who depend on livestock, unlike most Bhotia people, whose trading patterns changed drastically after the Nepali Government closed borders with Tibet. The people of Nar and Phu Valley were least affected by this change. The most direct route from Kathmandu to Nar and Phu is along the Marshyangdi River. We will trek through the Himalayan foothills and around the eastern end of the Annapurna ridge before arriving at Qupar, a police check post 30 minutes walk from Chame, Manang’s district headquarters. From here a long and steep trail winds up to Nar and Phu whose villagers port loads laden with goods from Chame and even lower down in Besishhar. At the end of the road leading to Manang, we’ll camp at Dharmashala, a rudimentary wooden hut built by the people from the two villages. Because it was only recently opened to tourism, few foreigners has visited the area and tourism infrastructure is almost non-existent. Now is a good time to visit before it becomes more developed and centered around tourists
