Description

The trek along the Naar-Phu valley to the Tibetan style villages of Phu and Naar and out across the Kang La is one of the most exciting new trips in Nepal. Spending 9 days exploring this lost Buddhist region, we trek as far as the remote stone-built village of Phu, whose inhabitants continue to trade across the border. We then turn off into a broad and rocky tributary valley, passing numerous chortens, mani walls and unusual gateways en route to Naar. Climbing to cross the Kang La (5306m) at the head of this valley, we have simply fantastic views of the Annapurnas, before dropping down to the stunning monastery at Braga. From Braga in the Marsyangdi Valley we follow a rarely-used trail which leads to the stunning Tilicho Lake beneath 7000 metre Tilicho Peak, where glaciers tumble right down to the lake. Finally, trekking to the north end of the lake we make a crossing of the Tilicho Pass with breathtaking vistas over the Tibetan Plateau, to reach the airstrip at Jomsom in the Kali Gandaki Valley. This is a rare opportunity in Nepal to trek off the well-beaten path. You can be amongst the first to visit this untouched corner of Nepal.
