High up in the foothills of the Himalayas in Nepal's Annapurna region are the villages of Nar and Phu, where Tibetan Buddhism is the dominant religion and people still follow the traditional way of life undisturbed by modernity. Join us on this ten-day, guided trek and travel to an isolated yet scenic location in the Himalayas.

Your journey starts from Kathmandu on Day 1 of this trip, when you will drive to Dharapani via Besishahar. From Dharapani, the trail leads to Koto and Meta before you enter into Phu village. Spend a day acclimatizing in Phu then trek down to Nar Phedi. A winding, uphill path from Nar Phedi leads to Nar village. Cross the Kang La Pass on Day 8 of this trip and trek down to Pisang, from where you will drive to Besishahar.

The Nar Phu trail was opened for tourists in 2003 and requires a special permit since the government of Nepal has listed the area as restricted. For more details, please scroll down to the itinerary section.

Wong's review for another Nepal Lion Tours and Treks Pvt Ltd tour
“Just finished my 9 days ABC trekking tour with Nepal Lion and I'm pleased with their seamless arrangement for the whole trip. The trek surely wasn't easy but it's fulfilling and the view up there surely worth the efforts. The booking with them was rather impromptu and I'm glad that it turned out to be great. My guide Bikash Nikesh is a very considerate person and he knows the terrains very well having himself did many treks in Nepal. He can adjust to your pace based on your request and personal fitness, most importantly he will ensure your safety at all times. Personally, having a guide is important because during my trek there were two massive landslides and thanks to Bikash I'm in one piece. And this was during the end of monsoon, an amateur hiker like me would have difficulties in getting thru it. For that I'm grateful. Nepal Lion itself is a small company and they are very customer centric with flexibility to adjust the trip based on your needs. Besides, I am happy to support small business in Nepal as it's not easy to make ends meet here. What I appreciate the most is that they explain everything clearly and orderly so you would have a right expectation of the trek and what is included and what is not for the trip. They are honest and genuine in their business. Plus, the airport transfers and farewell dinners are just a wonderful way to complete your trip in Nepal. If I were to return to Nepal for EBC I will surely go back to them. Until then, all the best with your trip if you're planning to do so!”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.
