Trip Highlights

Nar Phu Valley trekking for 15 days is one of the best trails to enjoy the virgin beauty of the sceneries. It does define the beauty of Nepal and the Himalayas. Nar Phu Trekking combines cultural and scenic delights throughout the trail. Likewise, you can witness the lifestyle here undisturbed and unchallenged by the modernized world. It will happen only if you walk in some lesser-selected sections.

 

Nar and Phu are different villages in the valley. Both towns are called Nar Phu at once and are a day’s walking distance from each other. Nar Phu Trek has been open for tourists since 2003, and it needs a special permit since it is also listed as a restricted area by the Government of Nepal.

 

Nar Phu Valley Trekking Features

 

Nar Phu Valley Trekking is ethnically Tibetan inhabitants with the high Himalayas. Historically, Nar Phu was captured by Khampas (Tibetan refugees), settled their inhabitants illegally, and stabled later. It is a non-touristic region yet because fewer tourists used to visit. The valley is naturally beautiful, but due to its remoteness and media promotion, it is still a virgin destination. Link your soul with the beautiful landscape and mesmerizing views of snow-capped mountains surrounding you.

 

Treat your senses with the Mani walls, Chortens, and stone-patched houses. Further, these patterns reflect the life and art in the Nar Phu region. Nar Phu is indeed a gift for adventure lovers in the Himalayas. The dead body of the Local people is buried or burned or fed to the vulture. For instance, it depends according to their date of birth and death. Above all, the lama will decide the luck of the way that how to end the dead body.

Itinerary

You drive along the Kathmandu-Pokhara Highway to Dumre and then follow the narrow, paved road by the Marshyangdi River to Besi Sahar. We begin our journey at early dawn, with a long drive ahead of us. Now, we head-start right after breakfast and leave Kathmandu around 7 in the morning. After 9-10 hours of movement, we reach Dharapani via Besishahar. Drive up to Besishahar will most likely be smooth owing to black-topped roads, whereas after Besishahar, the streets get dusty and coarse, but the scenic view from our windowpane is more than compensating for the bumpy ride.

It is also the day to explore the Tashi Lakhang Monastery – the old Buddhist Monastery listed out of the 108 world’s great Buddhist Monasteries; it is supposed to be the last monastery constructed by Karmapa Rinpoche.

Phu is an attractive village, and a day is well spent sitting with the villagers as they spin their yak and sheep wool, pound mustard seeds into a paste for oil, or go about their other daily chores.
