The Annapurna Circuit via Nar Phu Valley Trek takes you on one of the longest treks in the world while taking in the beauty of the Annapurna ranges. Through various geographical regions, the trail encircles the entire Annapurna massif. A trip to Upper Manang remote and historically significant Nar Phu Valley will be the cherry on top.

The greater Annapurna massif gives its name to the Annapurna Circuit Trek, also known as the Annapurna Round Trek. Mount Annapurna is part of the range, which is one of the world's highest mountain ranges (8091m). Mt. Machhapuchhre (6997m), Nilgiri (7061m), and Dhaulagiri are some of the other popular peaks in the area (8167m). An iconic trek to Nar and Phu Valley, which is home to medieval Tibetan culture, is made possible by a short detour at Lower Manang.

Amigo Treks & Expedition Annapurna Circuit Trek with Nar Phu Valley is a full-board trip that includes transportation and lodging throughout the trek. You will be accompanied by an English-speaking guide, as well as provisions for domestic flights, national park permits, and a TIMS card. Despite being a full-board package, you can always tailor the trip to your specific needs, budget, or departure date.

The journey begins with a day-long drive north along the Marshyangdi River to Dharapani. You will cross Dharmasala at Lower Manang and head north to the remote Nar and Phu Valleys. You will follow the Nar Khola River into the inner valley, which is still off-limits to most trekkers. On your way to Kang La Pass, you will pass through lush pine forests with views of Manaslu (8163m) and Kang Guru Peaks (5320m).
