The trek to Narphu valleys follows the Annapurna Circuit Trekking trail and crosses the Kangala Pass at 5200 m and then continues to Annapurna trail crossing the high pass Thorong La Pass at 54146 meters. The trek to this magnificent place begins with 9-hour drive to Jagat from Kathmandu via Besisahar. Starting our hike from the village of Syange and then leaving the Marshyangdi river, we eventually reach the small community of Jagat. We then get higher up passing the village of Dharapani. From Dharapani we branch-off to koto and then follow the off-the-beaten trail to towards Nar Phu valley lying north of Manang. Crossing the Kang La pass you will get to observe the magnificent panorama of Annapurna Massif. This pass links Nar Phu with Manang and other three villages in Neyshang valley. After Kang La pass we walk through a wooded area of fir, oak and eventually reach the hidden mountain valley. This valley offers you the medieval Tibetan culture in undisturbed form.
