Description

Some like to trek on tried and true paths, others, however, prefer to explore new ones where fewer have been before. Which group do you belong to? If to the second, then you will love this 24-day Nar Phu valley trek in the awe-inspiring Annapurna region.

The Nar and Phu valleys branch off from the traditional Annapurna trekking route and offer a world of discovery for intrepid adventurers. These beautiful Himalaya valleys are also a great way to reach villages of Tibetan influence. Furthermore, taking this road less traveled is ideal for those that want a rest from civilization and really want to feel the Nepali wilderness.

This 24-day trek will take us to discover some breathtaking locations with amazing views and big-hearted people. However, keep in mind that you will need a good fitness level to take on the 24-day trekking challenge. Of course, we will be there to help and guide you and you can find a full itinerary below.

So, are you ready to discover the amazing unexplored valleys of the Annapurna region? Then join us on this Nar Phu Valley trek.

We had an amazing Mardi Himal trek. We booked last minute and we were dealt with promptly and professionally. The trek was fully customisable including a stay in a lovely hotel and bus rides to and from Kathmandu. Our guide Amir was awesome and made our trek everything we wanted. Thank you so much!

We hebben echt genoten van onze trekking naar ABC. Jammer genoeg waren er echter overal problemen met de kamer. We hebben dan expres via een agency geboekt en meer betaald, zodat we zeker een kamer overal zouden krijgen. Dit bleek dan een probleem te zijn, omdat er niets op voorhand was geboekt. Ook hebben we last minute (letterlijk 5 min voor de 1e ontmoeting) een bericht van Hari gekregen dat we een andere guide zouden krijgen. Hierbij kregen we geen uitleg. De nieuwe guide had geen EHBO kit mee en wist ook helemaal niet wat allemaal inbegrepen was in onze boeking. Dit was opzich geen probleem, maar het leek plots allemaal niet meer zo goed georganiseerd als het beloofde te zijn. Ondanks dit hebben we echt wel genoten van onze tocht en zijn we blij dat we het gedaan hebben.
