Description
Nar Phu valley lies in Trans Himalayan zone and it offers the unique opportunities to explore the greater Himalayan belt. The entrance of the valley is very narrow near Koto but the upper valley is wider and wider. After passing through the pine forest between two steep rocky walls it comes the real wide and beautiful valley. The river valley is surrounded by the snow-capped high-mountain and looks like a bowl. The people of Nar and Phu village are Tibetan and they rely on mainly animal husbandry. This is nice place to experience the real Tibetan culture. There is another way to get out the valley from Kang La (5322m) to go to Manang but if someone has no prior hiking experience in higher elevation, it will be better to get out the same way.
This is the new destination and package tour gift for the trekkers and it is fully supported by the organized trek group.
