Nar Phu Valley Trek: 

Located at the Annapurna Region in mid-western Nepal, it has been opened for visitors since 2003. Similarly, the unique lifestyle influenced by Tibetans and the beautiful kayak Gompas is worth visiting here once in a lifetime. Also, the lifestyle of people here is similar to Tibet and the houses are built by rocks which shows the old tradition and cultures of Bhote (people living there) communities.

Actually, Nar Phu is also known as Narpa, which is two villages of Nar and Phu, which lies in the valley of Nar Khola in the Manang district of Nepal. This village has two varieties of secret language spoken and also known as a Sino-Tibiten (relating to a large language family of eastern Asia). However, Nar Phu valley trek is comparatively a new destination for the travelers.

Why choose Nar Phu Valley Trek?

Nar Phu Valley Trek starts from Kathmandu to Koto via Besi Sahar which is also known as “the town at the base of the hill”. When traveling to koto you will face many obstacles due to the unpaved road but you will have an amazing scenic view. The stunning gorges, mountains, landscapes, waterfalls will be there which will surely make your spirit high. And what can be more fun than walking along with these god gift natures?

After crossing the Meta on the 5th day, you will reach your first destination in “Phu”. There you will witness, not only god gifted natures but also the unique-old tradition village along with the old “dzong” which is the Tibetan style fortress as well as two ruined forts. This beautiful village/ destination was restricted for travelers until 2003. So, now it is opened so travel to this beautiful and old traditional village in Nepal.

Likewise, this journey has two destinations “Nar” & “Phu” so after having an amazing stay at “Phu” your next destination will be “Nar” which is different from the “Phu”. They have their own secret language and the lifestyle is also different from Nepali peoples. You will witness the old tradition of weaving in this village.

Thus, free from the internet, free from pollution and crowded area, enriched with the beautiful natures and peculiar custom and tradition, this might be your “dream comes true”. And with the help of the Pristine Nepal team, all the beautiful words listed here will be true.
