The remoteness of the Nar Phu valley and its proximity to Tibet has meant that the people and their culture have remained more akin to Tibet than Nepal. This also means that snow leopards and blue sheep are often seen in the area. We visit both Nar and Phu villages before crossing the Kang La Pass with magnificent views of the Annapurna. Around Manang we join the main Annapurna trail for a couple of days, before we set off on the second half of the trek. Leaving the main trail again we trek to Tilicho Lake - ‘The Great Ice Lake’, as Maurice Herzog described it in the 1950s - which lies tucked away below huge mountains and glaciers. The trails on this trek are rarely used and this exciting new itinerary offers the adventurous and fit trekker high mountain scenery at its very best.

An exotic door to Nar-Phu,/Narphu valley Trekking, has been opened to visitors only since 2003. This is one of the best regions for viewing majestic mountains in the high land. The Phu is the most beautiful medieval village where you can learn the real life styles of Bhote communities enjoy and have a pleasure of the fabulous and typical landscape of the valley. Narphu valley Trekking begins from Koto via walking through a unique Marsyandi valley. It could cover Annapurna circuit in four weeks.

The Nar and Phu valleys are newly opened, spectacular regions of ethnically-Tibetan inhabitants. Trekking the standard Annapurna circuit, the bridge leading over the Marshyangdi River to the steep portals of the Nar Phu valley system is easily missed, but although the entrance is narrow and forested, the valley system above opens up to a huge expanse of high snow-peaks, ancient villages and high altitude grazing settlements. Two long days of walking from the border of Tibet, this region was first explored by Tilman in the 1950s. Closed to trekkers until late 2002, very few westerners have explored these virtually untouched villages or climbed the many 7000m peaks surrounding it. We will venture into this remote region of upper Manang, staying at the winter settlement of Nar, and visit one of the most unvisited and most interesting regions in the Tibetan Buddhist world.

Although the normal circuit of Annapurna is a magnificent route, this new circular trek offers a wild and remote alternative including the newly-opened Nar and Phu Valleys and Tilicho Lake.
