Can we extend or shorten Nar Phu Valley?
There are 2 popular trekking trails which are interrelated with Nar Phu. To get to the main entry point of this trail, you should cross approx 25 percent of Annapurna Circuit trek. After Kangla Pass you will be in Ngwal which is a popular trekking accommodation spot of Around Annapurna Trek. From Ngwal you will have four options. They are:
1) Continue to Annapurna Circuit Trek
2) Continue to Tilicho Lake plus Annapurna Circuit
3) Back to Besisahar via Tilicho Lake
4) Trek to Tilicho and back to Besisahar
So according to your holidays time and interest you do extend or shorten Nar Phu trek.
How difficult is Nar Phu Valley Trek?
High altitude walks over the weeks as well as steep ascents, narrow Kang La Pass this trek is considered as challenging trek. Limited lodge on the far distance, it will be not flexible compared to the popular trail.
Mostly you should follow an itinerary to checkout from trail at the mentioned time period. So for the beginner’s trekkers, it will be hard whereas for those who have previous trekking experience it will be suitable.
What types of Accommodation and meals we can get on this route
Since Nar Phu has recently opened a remote mountain route, teahouse and their meals (food) are on the way to improvements. The Teahouse on this route is the basis as well as food items you will not get as Annapurna Circuit trail. Point to be noted, in Nar Phedi, accommodation is in the Monastery for that night.
How much does the permit cost?
September to November you should pay 90 USD per person for a Week. But from December to August, it cost 75 USD per person for a Week. This permit price was the standard price for Nar Phu determined by the Nepal government.
When is the best time to visit?
Needless to Say, September to November is the best season to do Nar Phu Trek. Only mid winter time we can not accomplish Kangla Pass. More often to say, during wintertime because of snow, it’s risky to walk on the narrow trail of the trek.
Though the rainy season it’s difficult to get to the entry point of the NVT trek due to landslides, after entering Nar Phu Area we can do this trek.
March to May is also a good season to explore Nar Valley.
