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.

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?

    There are no quarantine requirements in Nepal for arriving visitors at the moment.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.
