Tour Details
The Nar Phu Valley trek is in the rain shadow of the Himalaya, meaning the landscape is much drier and more barren than at lower elevations to the south, and much more similar to Tibet. It is rarely visited, meaning the villages are simple and the landscape rugged. Travelling here is a perfect way to see how all Nepal once was, before the development of roads and modern conveniences. The trails are rugged and at times are cut high into the sides of the cliff. There are also high passes to cross. The trek in general is quite challenging, and best suited to experienced trekkers who are confident in the mountains.

The Nar Phu Valley trek is one of the most exciting trekking holidays in Nepal, as it enters a land that was closed to visitors until 2003. Truly an off-the-beaten-path adventure that combines , remote villages, narrow canyons, amazing rock formations, and untouched Himalayan cultures. It’s a challenging but immensely rewarding route that’s ideal for experienced trekkers who want to avoid the busy trails elsewhere in the country and head into the real wilderness.
