Nar & Phu Valley Treks

The Nar and Phu valley is newly opened site for trekking in the Manang Region. The trek offers a combination of high Peak, remote villages, narrow canyons. Lovely forests, amazing rock formations, yaks gompas and unique Himalayan cultures.

Closed to trekkers until late 2003, very few Westerns have explored these virtually untouched areas or climbed many 7000m Peaks surrounding it.

Day Route Duration Highest Point/m
1 Arrival Kathmandu All day 1300m
Meet with our representative at the airport. Drive to hotel.
2 Kathmandu all day (1300m)
Sightseeing Day see Kathmandu Day Trips for ideas of what to do.
3 Kathmandu - Koto Qupar 6 hours (760m)
rivate or public transport to Besi Sahar (via Mugling Bazaar, Besi Sahar and Dumre) along the Trisuli river bank and then turning north along the Marsyangdi valley. Over night at lodge or camp.
4 Koto Qupar-Dharamsala 7 hours (3230m)
Bagarchap is just beneath another short climb which brings us up and over an ancient terminal moraine, and the plateaus of Chyako. These winter season herding areas are split into Upper and Lower villages, one belonging to Naar and the other to Phu. With time to spare we'll camp here and explore the now vacant homes.
5 Dharmasala-Kayang 6 hours (3740m)
The trail is less steep today, but the gradual ascent never tires. We'll traverse the Chyako valley on its eastern side and then climb another terminal moraine to then look down upon Khyang and our evening's campsite.
6 Kayang-Phu 5 hours (4050m)
The trail now plunges into another gorge, which in the morning will be cold and in deep shade. It seems as if nothing could live in the valley, but grazing areas can be spotted on the higher slopes. Winding along the rivers edge leades us to the spiritual gateway to the Phu valley - an enormous standing rock cover in unerving face-like shapes. A short, steep climb brings us to the Phu gateway and a collection of chortens, and finally to the awesome village of Phu.
7 Phu-Rest day
Phu is an amazing collection of dry stone walled homes and steep alleyways. Across the river is the famous Gompa which is our goal for the morning. During the afternoon we'll explore the village and try some Tibetan salt butter tea.
8 Phu-Junam 7 hours (3550m)
Retracing our steps down the Phu Khola, through Khyang and Chyako brings us to the Naar bridges. One ancient wooden bridge is for those who feel brave, the rest of us will take the new suspension bridge and gaze into the 80 meter deep gorge. Them it’s a long climb to Naar but the views will keep us distracted from the seemingly unrelenting up.
9 Junam-Naar 5 hours (4110m)
Naar is a beautiful village built in a natural bowl and surrounded by terraces. The locals are warm and friendly so we'll have lots of fun exploring.
10 Naar-high camp
The valley slowly rises towards the west, so it's a relatively easy walk today. There are two campsites that we can choose from: one at the end of the valley before the climb to the Kang La, or another smaller campsite about 80m beneath the summit of the pass.
11 Naar-Ngawal (3650m)
If we camped low yesterday it will be a long slow climb to the razor sharp pass, if we've camped high then it will take less than an hour to reach the terrific view point of the Kang La. It is just possible to see the top of Machhapachare rising above the mighty Annapurna wall. Directly in front of us is Annapurna 2 and 4 - with the Annapurna circuit lying 1800m below. For us, it's the long secent to the circuit to Humde airport.
12 Ngawal-Manang 5 hours (3540m)
From Ngawal there will be views of the village of Pisang, Humde airport, and lots green pine trees.
13 Manang – Yakkharka 5 hours (4200m)
The upper reaches of the Marsyangdi valley is a tough place to live. Thanki village, which we pass through today, is full of homes designed to cope with the extremes that the Himalaya can throw at a settlement. The low, mud-roofed homes have a stable on the ground floor - the animal dung being a prime source of fuel for the kitchens. The trail climbs and we enjoy magnificent views of the Annapurna, Gungapurna, Tilicho and the Chulu peaks.
14 Yakkharka- Thorung Phedi 3 hours (4400m)
Today we head up to the last camp and lodges before the Thorung La. If camping and the group is strong enough, we will trek through Thorong Phedi and sleep a little higher to make the ascent a bit easier in the morning.
15 Thorung Phedi-Muktinath 10 h (5416m)
Today is the hardest on the trek; we first ascend steeply to 4590m, and then trek along an undulating trail to the flat top of Thorung La (5416m.) From here there are stunning views of the Annapurna range to the south and Mukut Himal bordering Dolpo to the West. The trail descends steeply over glacial moraine, which gives way to grassy meadows before we reach Muktinath. This is one of the most important pilgrimage sights for Hindus and is home to many ethnic Tibetans and Buddhist monks who live in monasteries scattered around the valley. The nearby temple with 108 carved spouts from which holy water flows is famous for a fire that miraculously burns in a stream of water.
16 Muktinath - Jomsom 7 hours (2670m)
A long descend through Jharkot, Khinga Gurung and Thakali villages brings us to the windy Kali Gandaki River at Jomsom where we stop for camp.
17 Jomsom-Pokhara by plane over night at hotel
18 Drive or fly Pokhara- Kathmandu
19 Free day shopping in Kathmandu
