Spend 24 days exploring the beautiful and only recently opened Naar Phu region of Nepal in the Himalayas with IFMGA certified mountain guide Herve.
On this 24 day journey in the Naar Phu valleys you will have the chance to see one of the most untouched regions of Nepal. Most of our time will be spent near the Tibetan border. The trip will be broken up into several sections, and you will be given ample time to explore each one. Hence making this trip more about taking your time to explore and admire the beautiful, peaceful surroundings than to rush through them.
Each section of this trip will give you the chance to have some memorable experiences, while also enjoying some spectacular views of the Himalayas. Along with the Naar valley (4,110m) and the Phugaon valley (4,080m), you will get to spend time on the Annapurna Tower, and the Kang La Pass (5,399m).
You will also get to visit several beautiful villages as well, including Jagat, Muktinath and Jomsom. Furthermore, you will be given several days to enjoy and explore the Nepalese capital city of Kathmandu.
There is also some great climbing to be done on this expedition as well. We will be venturing to the summits of 2 great mountains: Chulu (6,584m) and Pisang (6,091m). Both of these peaks are great climbs, and the views you will get of the Himalayas beyond and the gorges, villages and valleys below are spectacular.
As a result of the extensive hiking and climbing on this trip (approximately 6-8 hours per day), it is important that participants are in good physical condition.
On this magnificent journey, you will get to venture into a part of Nepal that most Westerners have yet to see. As a result, you will get to see the local people, customs, and culture of the area. So send us a request, and let us guide you through the Naar Phu area of Nepal.

IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide
I come from Marseille and I found my passion for mountaineering very early, climbing Les Calanques, some mountains in the Verdon region and in the Alps. I got my IFMGA (mountain guide) certificate in 1983 and my ski instructor license in 1985.
I brought my clients on many summits of the Alps and went abroad to discover the world. I went skiing, climbing, mountaineering… in Morocco, Norway, Algeria (Hoggar), Yosemite (El Capitan) and Nepal. I discovered this passion for travelling and started to organize my first trips with my clients. In the late 80’, I went to the Annapurna Sanctuary and I did several ascents in Peru (Pisco, Yanapatcha and Huascaran). In the 90’, I did several trips in Nepal (Helambu, Langtang…).
I then kept on and further explored the world with my clients: Rolwaling traverse (Perchamo, Mera Peak Mingbo La), the summits of Yala Peak and the Yana Kanga, Patagonia (in Argentina), Manaslu tour in Nepal, Meso Kanto La, Mustang, Atacama desert in chili and many others.
I like bringing my clients mountaineering in summer and ski touring / heliskiing in winter.

Hervé est fort à l\'écoute de son client, il cerne très bien les attentes et les envies. Il est aussi très rassurant et porte une attention particulière au bien-être de chacun. Il a beaucoup d\'expérience, on sent qu\'il connaît bien la montagne et il est prudent. Enfin, il est discret et sympatique. Je le recommande vivement !
