12 days Naar Phu & Kangla Pass trek
The remote valleys of Nar and Phu were restricted to foreigners until 2002. Even today, villages within these valleys remain virtually untouched. Most of the inhabitants of this region are involved in trading with Manang and Chame while some rely on tourism as a source of income.
Our trek starts from Besisahar and it is only on the ninth day of our trek that we reach the village of Phu. From Phu we trek further to the village of Nar and continue trekking up to Manang. From Manang we trek to Jomsom before we catch a flight back to Kathmandu.
