Nar-Phu valley trek is above the tree line on the upper limits of cultivation, in the very north of Manang district. It takes five hours reaching the pass that links Nar with Manang and three other Bhotia villages in the Nyershang down valley. Nowadays, Nar Phu has about 300 inhabitants who depend on livestock, unlike most Bhotia people, whose trading patterns changed drastically after the Nepali Government closed borders with Tibet, the people of Nar and Phu valley were least affected by this change. The tortuous path leading from the valley into Tibet had never made them dependent on the salt trade, and till today yak herding is the basis of their livelihood.The Nepal government””s recent decision to open up Nar and Phu to tourists has evoked little enthusiasm among the villagers, whose pastoral lifestyle continues. Apart from the odd researcher and climbing expeditions permitted to climb Him lung, Ratnachuli and Gachikang, few foreigners has visited the area and tourism infrastructure is almost non-existent. Since Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) recently extended its network to include Nar and Phu Valley, it is preparing a suitable tourism development plan at the request of the government for undiscovered valley. We start this trek after driving almost whole day from Kathmandu to Besishar. From here we follow Pupular Annapurna Circuit route until Koto and then we take off the beatan route until we get Nar Phu. After visiting this area we trek back to manang, a beautiful village of Annapurna trail and continue trek to Tilicho route. After trekking about 4-5 days through Tilicho Lake and two beautiful but challenging pass of this region we end our trek at Jomsom where we catch our flight to Pokhara and later to KTM. Trekkers carry only day pack and walk at their own place.

What Client Say About Us
Nous sommes finalement partis en octobre le trek etait tres bien preparé et l'equipe à la faois amicale serviable et efficace permettant de nous sentir en toute securité.
We have just finished a 17 days trek in the Annapurnas and Mustang regions. The trek was demanding at times but from the very beginning we encountered great support and encouragement from Jomson Treks and Expedition who provided the most efficient service.
The city has a humid subtropical climate; however, the elevation keeps temperatures moderate. Temperatures in summer average between 25 and 35 °C; in winter around −2 to 15 °C.
If you are looking for ways to conquer your fear or just want to do something crazy for your adrenaline kicks in, the high lands of our country can help you achieve this goal.
So we decided to continue with them and in August 2010 we have organized the Upper Mustang Trek with the same agency. Guru is the best trekking guide and he has his own trekking company in Pokhara ( Jomsom Treks & Expedition p.ltd)
nous sommes très satisfait de la prestation, car shiva a été un très bon guide, flexible et attentif, avec de bonnes adresses locales pour dejeuner et pour dormir. notre guide Harka était d un dévouement sans faille, et connaissait également très bien la région
Our group of six persons had a wonderful trip to Annapurna Base Camp through the help and expertise of Guru and his team of guides and porters, particularly Chandra, Anil and Samser. Their office in Pokhara is very conveniently situated and accessible by internet
My girlfriend and I just came back from the Ghorepani Trek (Poon Hill) that we did in 4 days (it can be difficult for people who are not in good shape since two of these days are 15 KM/7.5 hours walk per day without speaking of the ascent).
A great experience from the beginning! We looked for some thing off the beaten path and the Model Trek was it. We saw no fellow tourists during our camping portion of the trip ! Just locals Our guide, cook and porters were very good and friendly.
It was a truly great experience. 14 days of pure joy despite some cloudy days (monsoon…). The views from the Thorung La pass (5416m) were just incredible, and some of the villages on the route were magnificent (most notably Upper Pisang and Kagbeni)
