There is 2 popular trekking trail which is interrelated with Nar Phu. To get enter the main entry point of this trail, you should cross approx 25 percent of Annapurna Circuit trek.

How difficult is Nar Phu Valley Trek ?

High altitude walk 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 itinerary to checkout from trail at the mention time period. So for the beginner’s trekkers, it will hard whereas for the those have previous trekking experience it will be suitable.

What types of Accomodation and meals we can get on this route

Since Nar Phu is recently opened a remote mountain route, teahouse and their meals (food) are on the way to improvements. 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 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 Nepal government.

When is 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 time it’s difficult to get the entry point of NVT trek due to landslides, but after entering Nar Phu Area we can do this trek.

March to May is also a good season to explore Nar Valley.
