The Nar and Phu valleys are relatively newly opened to trekkers, two spectacular valleys inhabited by ethnic Tibetans. The trek combines high peaks and passes, glaciers, remote villages, narrow canyons, lovely forests, amazing rock formations, yaks, gompas and unique Himalayan cultures. The valleys of Nar and Phu are found by trekking off the Annapurna Circuit trail. Closed to trekkers until late 2002 very few westerners have explored these virtually untouched villages or climbed the many 7000-meters peaks that surrounded it.The trek provides a chance to visit some of the most unvisited and interesting villages in the Tibetan Buddhist world. Buddhist pilgrims from around Nepal often trek the route up to Phu to visit the renowned Tashi Lha Khang monastery and receive a blessing from Lama Karma Sonam Rinpochhe. We return to Pokhara by trekking back on to the Annapurna Circuit and to cross over the Thorong La pass (5416-meter) and on down through lower Mustang, where a few days are spent exploring before heading on to Jomsom and finally fly back to Pokhara and Kathmandu.
