Nar Phu Valley Trek Kang La Pass Trek is located in restricted areas of Nepal which are rich in cultural and natural beauty. Nar Phu Valley Trek has been open to foreigners since 2003 with special permits and criteria. However, trekkers must join a legal trekking company to get a Nar Phu Valley Trekking Permit. As well, trekkers must take a government-licensed trekking guide. Green Valley Nepal Treks is an eligible trekking company in Nepal that can arrange Nar Phu Valley trekking permits and license-holder trekking guides.

Nar Phu Valley is one of the most untouched and beautiful regions in Nepal. Nar Phu Valley Trek is one of the best destinations in the Nepal Himalayas for those seeking a glimpse into a region of raw beauty and Tibetan culture. The Nar Phu Valley is inhabited by Tibetan refugees, where you can get a real experience of the Tibetan people and culture. Besides its cultural importance, Narphu Valley is also famous for its stunning glimpses of beautiful mountains such as Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Tilicho Peak, and Lamjung Himal.

We start the Nar Phu Kang La Pass Trek from Dharapani after driving from Kathmandu. From Dharapani to Koto, we follow the route of the Annapurna Circuit Trek. During the Nar Phu Valley Trek, we cross several high passes, picturesque villages, ancient monasteries, and narrow canyons to reach remote Nar and Phu villages near Tibet. After visiting the Nar Phu Valley, you will be rejoining the Annapurna Circuit Trails in Manang Village. We continue our trek ahead to Throng-La Pass (5416m), passing through Yak Kharka and Thorong Phedi.

After crossing one of the highest passes (Thorong La Pass), you will reach Muktinath. Muktinath is a common pilgrimage site for Hindu and Buddhist people. From Muktinath, we take a shared Jeep to Jomsom and fly back to Pokhara. Our trek ends in Pokhara because most of the trekkers want to spend a few extra days in Pokhara after the trek. But on request, we can arrange the trip to Kathmandu from Pokhara as well.

Kang La (5,200m) and Thorong La (5,416m) passes are the highest points of the Nar Phu Valley Kang La Pass Trek Itinerary. Green Valley Nepal Treks offers tea house treks around Nar Phu Valley using local homestays and tea houses, including simple Nepali cuisine.

Preparation for Nar Phu Valley Kang La Pass Trek

The most crucial aspect of taking part in trekking or hiking is your physical and mental health. If you lack the necessary prior trekking experience, you may begin by going for morning walks, exercising, and cycling for weeks or months before making a reservation with us. For the Nar Phu Valley Trek with Kang La Pass, it will be advantageous if you have prior hiking and climbing expertise. Thorung La Pass, at 5416 meters above sea level, is the journey's biggest height increase. There are several ascents and descents on the route, which also pass through farmlands, terraces, and riverfront settlements. You, therefore, need to be energetic to walk for 4 to 6 hours each day. Since a lack of confidence may usually lead to discomfort and worry, trekkers also need to be emotionally motivated. If you have a breathing problem when booking a voyage with us, we highly encourage you to see your doctor before leaving and then provide us with a copy of the report.

    Best Season or Time for Nar Phu Valley Trekking

    When planning a journey to Nar Phu Valley Kang La Pass, the weather is the most important element to take into account. In the spring and autumn, Green Valley Nepal Treks offers Nar Phu treks.

    • March to May (Spring)

    Nar Phu treks are highly well-liked in the spring and draw plenty of trekkers to the Nar Phu valley. This time of year is ideal for trekking because of the warm weather, bright skies, little rain, and pleasant temps. The walk is enjoyable because the lower parts of the route are warmer. Trek season starts in April. Even at heights of over 3,000 meters, the walking path across the Himalayas will be decorated with red, pink, and white rhododendron blooms by April. From the middle of March through the middle of May, the temperature begins to rise.

    • September to November (autumn)

    Autumn is a great time to go on Nar Phu Kang La Pass Trek, due to the moderate temperatures, light winds, and little downpours. The sky is clear, the sun is shining brilliantly, and the mountains are beautifully visible. Since the sky is clear at night as well, you may take in the breathtaking starry heavens. By early September, the monsoon will have passed, leaving behind pleasant to warm weather. The golden/amber hues of the monsoon-grown greens provide a stunning contrast with the clear blue skies. In the enclaves, the grains are maturing. The surroundings are unpolluted, and the lowlands are lush.

    Food or Meal on Nar Phu Valley Kang La Pass Trek

    You need adequate food that is high in nutrients because your Nar Phu Valley Trekking will take you to quite high altitudes. We will set up lots of wholesome food, but as you climb higher, your options become progressively more limited.

    You may choose from a variety of foods for breakfast, including the regional Tsampa porridge, pancakes, Tibetan bread or chapati, butter, cheese, honey, various egg items, muesli bread, fruits and vegetables, hot beverages, etc.

    Dal, Bhat, and Tarkari, Various Soup Items, Vegetable Curry, Thukpa, Pasta, Steaks, Potatoes, Noodles, Sherpa Stew, Spaghetti, Tibetan Bread, Momo (Dumplings), Macaroni, Salad, Pizza, Sandwiches, Snacks, Dessert Items are just a few of the dishes available for lunch.

    Dinner will include dishes like dal, bhat, and tarkari, vegetable curry, potatoes, papad, prawns, Korean ramen, pizza, soups, sherpa stew, sandwiches, momo (dumplings), pasta, desserts, salads, spaghetti, noodles, snacks, Tibetan bread, and steaks, among other things.

    Accommodation during Nar Phu Valley Trek

    In Pokhara and Kathmandu, you will stay in quality accommodation. You will share a room with a fellow trekker of the same gender if you are traveling in a group. Requesting a single supplement will incur an additional fee above the Nar Phu Valley Trek Price listed if you want a single room. You will stay at tea houses while on the hike. A tea house combines the functions of a restaurant, hotel, and public gathering place. The bedrooms are furnished with twin beds and not much else, such as little tables or chairs. Although blankets are frequently offered, it is advised that you bring your own sleeping bags. The majority of restrooms either have squatting toilets or more comfortable sitting toilets. Most lodges feature hot water for showers, however, utilizing hot showers costs extra.

    Nar Phu Valley Trek Difficulty

    The Nar Phu Valley Trek Kang La Pass is really challenging. This trek's tough level of difficulty is a result of the route's great elevation. Along the trekking trail, at a height of 5416 meters, Thorung La is the highest elevation pass in the region. This part of the journey is so challenging that it is closed for most of the year due to the extreme cold and heavy snowfall. Additionally, when traveling, you always remain above 3000 meters. Some of the most challenging terrains, which are typically harsh, rocky, and steep, are traversed. This makes the Nar Phu trek more challenging. Compared to many other treks, the difficulty of the Nar Phu Valley trip cannot be adjusted. Even though you have the option to skip some of the pathways, doing so would result in you missing out on the adventure's best moments. The only way a trekker can better handle the challenges of the Nar Phu trek is to prepare physically and mentally.

    Travel Insurance for Nar Phu Valley Trek

    The difficult Nar Phu Trek takes place at a high altitude. You will pass through Thorung La Pass (5,416m) and Kang La Pass (5,320m), which entails dangers related to high-altitude hikes, such as altitude sickness, landslides, etc. Therefore, travel insurance is compulsory for the Nar Phu Kang La Pass Trekking journey. Before the trek begins, each trekker must provide Green Valley Nepal Treks a copy of their certificate for comprehensive travel insurance. The insurance must pay for medical and emergency repatriation, as well as helicopter rescue and evacuation costs, up to the highest trek altitude of 6000 meters. After reserving a trek, we kindly ask that trekkers send us a detailed insurance form. In an emergency, we will plan a successful rescue using your insurance policy and other documents you sent us.

    Altitude Sickness and Remedies during Kang La Pass Nar Phu Valley Trek

    When the body cannot adjust to the low levels of oxygen and high air pressure found in high-altitude mountains, altitude sickness emerges. Many hikers and mountaineers experience acute mountain sickness at an altitude of 3000 meters because the oxygen level starts to decline. Headaches, fatigue, nausea, shortness of breath, dizziness, lack of sleep or inability to sleep, loss of appetite, and other symptoms are associated with acute mountain sickness. To prevent altitude sickness when hiking to Nar Phu Valley, take into account the following advice:

    • Keep yourself hydrated when hiking and stay away from alcohol because it dehydrates you.
    • Maintain a healthy diet throughout the trip.
    • Diamox, the most effective medicine for altitude sickness, should be brought along on the hike.
    • Don't hurry when hiking to a high altitude. You ought to walk carefully and slowly.
    • Before hiking at an elevation of more than 3,000 meters, acclimate appropriately.
    • If your body reveals any symptoms of altitude sickness, you must either stop immediately or lower some elevation.
    • Keeping yourself clean may also help you avoid altitude sickness.

      A Himalayan Odyssey Beyond Compare

      An exceptional journey via the Nar Phu Valley with the Kang La and Thorong La Pass was planned by Green Valley Nepal Treks. I was mesmerized by this area's distant charm. Every moment was a novelty, from the strenuous mountain hills to the dynamic cultures of the surrounding communities. Throughout the entire process, the team's professionalism and commitment to our experience were clear. This journey provided the ideal combination of exploration and exposure to local culture. I'm incredibly appreciative to Green Valley for creating this event that changed my life.

    FAQs
    • The Nar Phu Valley trekking offers a genuine, breathtaking glimpse into the Himalayan environment. Between the more popular Annapurna and Manaslu regions, Nar Phu is a genuine hidden treasure that allows hikers to discover pristine valleys with a unique combination of old Buddhist culture and untainted Himalayan scenery. You will get a unique view of the Khampa’s way of life in the two distinct but nearby villages of Nar and Phu.

    • Without a guide, solo trekkers are not allowed to traverse the Nar Phu Valley. It needs a minimum of two group members and a certified trekking guide. One of the regions of Nepal's vast Himalayas restricted area is the Nar Phu Valley. As a result, you need to follow the trekking permit instructions. However, it is impossible to trek totally on your own if you don't want to hire a guide.

    • Definitely Yes, A different trekking route in Nepal's western Annapurna Region is called Nar Phu Valley Trekking. The recently discovered walk rises up to 5416 meters above sea level at Thorong La Pass. About 300 people live in the Nar Phu Valley and are dependent on cattle. In contrast to other Bhotia people, whose trading patterns radically altered once the Nepali government closed its borders with Tibet, the residents of the Nar and Phu valley were least impacted by this development. Yak herding has continued to be their primary source of income because of the difficult route that leads from the valley into Tibet. This hike connects to the Annapurna Circuit by crossing the Kang La Pass (5320 meters).

    • The vast majority of locations in your tea houses feature charging stations. By spending some more cash, you may recharge your gadgets. It's a good idea to pack a two- or three-pin travel adaptor and store your electronics in a warm location at night.

    • To filter the tap water offered in the guest homes along the journey, we advise either bringing water purification pills or drinking only boiling water. The boiling water is available for a modest cost. Although most establishments have mineral water accessible, there is no place to discard plastic bottles, therefore we urge visitors to do all they can to save the environment.

    • The greatest height one can reach when trekking through the Nar Phu valley is at Thorong La Pass (5416m), which presents a significant challenge for thrill seekers.
