Few knows about 2 high passes in the Annapurna region and very few have had heard about Annapurna 2 high pass Trek. But most of you have heard about Thorong la pass of Annapurna circuit trekking trail. So this trekking itinerary gives insights of both trekking routes; one the famous Thorong la pass and another less known Kang la pass.

This trekking package covers restricted part of Nepal in off the beaten part of Narphu valley along with famous Annapurna circuit trekking. Saying restricted we need special permit as well as ACAp permit for Annapurna 2 high passes trek.

Narphu valley trek – a restricted trail of Annapurna

Manang district in the Annapurna region of Nepal Himalaya offers a new trekking trail called Nar Phu trekking. Nar Phu is a village located in Manang, composed of culture, people and typical traditional practices. Deserted geography of the valley makes this trail more off the beaten path. This trek goes into the deep valley of Nar Phu, opened for trekking from 2003AD.

Nar Phu is a deserted valley in the green Himalaya. It will be fun for you to be in the deserted valley after crossing mountains and heading towards Himalaya. On this trek, trekkers explore the distinct culture of people and many Gombas and Mannes. Nar Phu is dominated with Buddhist culture and hence the trail is traditionally dominated with Buddhist people and their warm well-come to the valley.

Looking forward

On our treks we focus on fun as well as gaining new knowledge, thus we will create many opportunities for our clients to get involved with the local activities. Culture of Nar Phu valley widely resembles Tibetan culture. Visit to Nar Phu makes you feel like being in Tibet culturally, but in desert geographically.  Annapurna ranges and Himlung Himal are major attractions though trekkers can screen many mountains along the trail, like Manaslu, Dhaulagiri, Tilicho peak and many unnamed Himalayan peaks.

Nepal government under ACAP & immigration of Nepal is upgrading this trail with more infrastructures; this is increasing interest towards the trekking trail of Nar Phu valley & so is Annapurna 2 high pass Trek. Travelling to Nar Phu valley with team of Nepalgram makes the trekking more worthwhile, because we focus on the local participation and help our clients to know more about the local culture and the environment.
