Unknown Naar Phu Trek

The hidden valleys of Nar and Phu- Remote trekking - The Challenge of crossing the Kang La - Snow Leopard Country

Secret Himalayas - Nar Phu

The hidden valleys of Nar and Phu are a restricted area and to enter this 'lost' Himalayan Kingdom requires special permits (we take care of these for you). That this deters most trekkers is a blessing and thankfully very people undertake this true Himalayan Connoisseurs trek into the remote, isolated mountain area where a distinctly Tibetan way of life is preserved. That some hard trekking is also required helps maintain a sense of discovery and exclusivity on this very, very special journey on foot to a very 'off the beaten track' part of Nepal. Here the local way of life is by and large unchanged, with many families still migrating to temporary winter settlements to graze their yaks, and trade across the border with Tibet. Reaching Nar is possibly the romantic idyll of Himalayan life and culture, seemingly a 'shangri la' of snow covered mountains, colourful fields and picturesque traditional homes. The challenge of crossing the Kang La adds to the nature of the adventure. For the experienced, strong walker this is a very, very special trek. In fact it is far, far more than just a trek. Don't forget our trekking holidays are tailor-made and whilst this itinerary includes an acclimatisation day and a controlled rate of ascent, you can always have more rest, acclimatisation and even contingency days added. The itinerary is merely a suggested itinerary and is  not entirely  'set in stone'. Sleeping bags (4 season) will be required. We can arrange sleeping bag  rental if required.


SPECIAL NOTE - Things in this area are changing as trekkers now discover this relatively new trekking area. A few trekking lodges are springing up, so camping may not be necessary (it will help bring costs down too). As this is "fluid" situation in a remote part of Nepal, please contact us for the latest information as we're currently working on two new "teahouse trekking" itineraries for Nar & Phu treks (one to Tilicho Lake too!)
