Nar Phu & Kangla High Pass

This classic Nepal trek has 3 nights in Kathmandu and a 14 day trek around Annapurna, circling north of the Annapurna massif via the 5 416 m high Thorong La pass including the lost valley of Nar Phu villages and Khangla Pass (5322 m). After 9 hours of drive we reach to Koto 2610 m where we start our trek. The trek begins in the lush valley of the Narphu Khola (River) that cuts steeply between the Pisang peak to the west and the Himlung, Manaslu/Himalchuli peaks to the east. Turning off from Nepal’s legendary Annapurna Circuit, the wild, rarely-visited, valleys of Nar and Phu a longitudinal gorge that makes a deep furrow behind Annapurnas, you will find yourself in an increasingly Buddhist culture offering a window onto one of Nepal’s most untouched, Tibetan-influenced quarters. The Manang Valley is inhabited by gypsy traders of Tibetan origin whose villages resemble clusters of medieval stone dwellings. The major villages of the trek are Nar Phu village, Ngwal village, Manang (Braga monastery), Muktinath, Kagbeni and Jomsom.
