Nar Phu Valley with Kang La Pass Trek

0
  • Wi-Fi: Some Place
  • Maximum Altitude: 5320m (Kang-La Pass)
  • Walking: 5 to 7 hours /day

Overview

The Nar Phu valley’s geology is Trans-Himalayan, identical to Tibet’s. Trekking through the valleys of Nar and Phu is like passing through a portal into a world that has never changed. Nar and Phu are two Bhotia villages in the Trans-Himalayan valley.

Kangla Pass Trip is an off-the-beaten-path trek to Manang’s hidden valley. Some elements of the Annapurna Circuit trek are found at the start and end of this expedition. When it comes to Nar Phu Valley trip difficulties, it is a difficult trek since you must cross a high pass. The highest pass you must traverse is Kang La Pass (5,306 m).

The route is generally unmarked and narrow. You’ll be mounting brittle, cliffs or scree slopes that lead to a chasm of the glacial river that torrents at times. The path dips into massive canyons or coils along the rushing Nar Khola river. You’ll stroll across huge gorges and marvel at breathtaking Himalayan views. You’ll be visiting forgotten kingdoms reduced to ruins, undiscovered settlements lost over time, and more.

This trekking in Nepal’s restricted area will show you the authentic culture and nature of the Manang district. Even though these villages are in Nepal, Tibetan culture and tradition have influenced them.

They speak a language that is separate from the rest of the country. Their original language is “Nar Phu” or “Narpo” in the Sino-Tibetan linguistic family. This is in stark contrast to the Tamangese and Managese languages.

Perhaps, The Nar Phu Valley, Kanga La Pass, is ideal for individuals with sufficient time. Those who desire to trek through Nepal’s gorgeous, less-traveled isolated provinces travel through this magnificent trekking course. This tented outdoor trek takes you to the newly opened district of Nar and Phu valley, which is located just north of the significant Annapurna circuit route.
