Narphu Valley Trek is an exploration of the hidden valley that crosses through the demanding high passes of ‘Kang La’ and ‘Thorong La’. It’s an amazing journey into wild and unexplored areas on the north of Annapurna circuit. There are roughly only 350 Nepalese Tibetan inhabitants and they still practice their ages old lifestyle and tradition.

Narphu Valley Trek is recently build trekking trails. Narphu Valley is spectacular regions of ethnically Tibetan inhabitants. This trek combines the remote villages, narrow canyons, forests, different rock formations, yaks, Gompas and unique Himalayan cultures. The entrance is narrow and forested but above opens up to a huge expanse of high snow-peaks, ancient villages and high altitude settlements. After two long days of walk from the border of Tibet, Tilman first explored this region in the 1950s. There is the restriction for the trekkers until late 2002, very few westerners have explored this area. We can venture into this remote region of upper Manang by staying at the winter settlement of Nar. Also, we visit one of the most non-visited and interesting regions in the Tibetan Buddhist world; where you feel really an extreme feeling.

How many days do I need for Narfu Valley Trek ?
You need More or less 2 weeks for Narfu Valley trek from Kathmandu to Kathmandu. But you can also combine Manaslu Tsum valley within 3 weeks more or less.

Do I need guide to trek Manaslu region ?
Since Manaslu region is restricted trekking route, trekkers should have government registered guide and agency to obtain Manaslu region permits and trek. What shorts of trekking permits do I need ? If you are trekking only Manaslu circuit then you need Manaslu conservation area, Annapurna conservation area and Manaslu special permits. But if you prefer combining Tsum valley then you should have Tsum valley special permit as well.

Can I do the Narfu Valley  trek in reverse ?
Yes. But be wary of proper acclimatisation. The locals in Samdo and the lodge owners in Larkya Phedi come this way from Pokhara and Kathmandu as it is the fastest way. If you are not acclimatised, it will be better to come via the Budi Gandaki valley, otherwise you have several days acclimatising in Bimtang followed by a leap to 5100m which is considered risky.

Yes, you can do tea house trek and you do not need tent and mattress. Is there electricity in tea houses to charge my camera and cell phone ? Apart from Gumpa Lungdang and Dharmasala you will have power all the places where you can charge your battery too. It will cost you more or less couple of dollar for full charge.

What is rest day ?
Rest day is not a rest day. It is an acclimatize day where we do day hike to adapt altitude during Himalaya. This is main key factor to achieve our final destination and explore more side trip in detail.

Do I need special training for exploring Manaslu region ?
You do not need special course for Manaslu trek but if you have some hiking experience before visit Nepal, it will put you better position. Because the terrain of Nepal is quite rugged and challenging.

It depends on your spending habits. Generally, in Kathmandu and Pokhara you can allocate USD 10 to USD 15 for a lunch and a dinner. USD 20 to USD 30 per person a day will be enough to buy meals, bottles of water, chocolates, pay for the hot shower and a few drinks during the trekking.

What is the drinking water facility in the mountain ?
Bottled water is easily available at the lodges and teahouses, which you can buy at the cost of USD 1 at lower elevations upto USD 4 to higher elevation per liter.

Yes, they have all received a 45-day training from the Hotel Management and Tourism Center in Nepal. The guides have also received high altitude first aid training from KEEP (Kathmandu Environmental Education Project)

Can I use credit cards in the places I visit in trekking?

Yes you can use in Kathmandu but Once you are out of the cities, all you need is cash. Please change the currency in local Nepali Rupees before you go to the mountains

I am a Vegetarian, is that a Problem ?
No problem at all because mostly, the lodges serve the vegetarian meals. We always recommend our clients to eat vegetarian meals to avoid the food poisoning, eating heavy meals and non- vegetarian meals at the high altitude is not really safe for the stomach.

Almost all the guest houses sell the toilet paper so you can buy it there itself. Hand sanitizer and a towel you must bring your own.
