Trekking in Nar Phu valley is best in Autumn and Spring. Since the valley is dry, rain there is not a problem. So, you can even trek there to escape the Summer. The trek begins at the lovely Besisahar, which also serves as the beginning point for the Annapurna Circuit. The elevation swiftly elevates as we travel to Koto Village in the Nar Phu area. After we cross a small waterfall at Meta pass, we again ascend to the famous Tashi Lhakhang Gompa.
Spending a day in the Gompa, we will walk through a small alley curved in a stony mountain to reach Himjung Himal Base Camp. On our trail to Himjung, we will pass through some deep canyons and gorges. You can see various Tibetan chortens and prayer stones on the way. Then we reach the ancient Nar Phedi monastery and its adjacent Village of Nar.
The next day, we will reach Ngawal via the Kang La Pass at the height of 5,240 meters marking it as our return point to Besisahar. This is a relatively tougher trail. It takes 10 to 12 days to successfully complete Nar-Phu Valley Trek.
