Useful Info

Best time for the trip

The Nar Phu Valley Trek is best done in the Autumn (September, October, and November) and Spring (March, April, and May) (March, April, and May). These seasons provide consistent weather and temperate temperatures, making them ideal for hiking.

Autumn (September to November)

In Nepal, the autumn season is the busiest for trekking. The weather in the region is stable, with little precipitation. From various spots along the trail, you will have spectacular views of the snow-capped Alps.

Furthermore, the walk is one of the most exhilarating autumn excursions. During your hiking excursion, you will experience mild temperatures, which are ideal for trekking. Aside from that, there are other cultural festivals to attend, as well as cultural discoveries.

Spring (March to May)

The Nar Phu valley trek is very enjoyable in the spring. There will be less rain, and you will be enchanted by the picturesque views of the snow-capped mountains. In the spring, wildflowers cover the slopes, turning them crimson and pink.

Furthermore, as uncommon wildlife emerges from their winter hibernation, you will be able to see them in the region. The spring season also brings milder daytime temperatures, which are ideal for hiking.

Aside from that, throughout the summer months (June to August), considerable rainfall occurs, making the trails slick and causing landslides and avalanches. With the correct gear and preparation, you can trek throughout the winter off-seasons (December to February). In the winter, the paths are particularly lovely.

Difficulties at Himalayan Wildlife Tour

The Nar Phu trek is classified as a moderate Himalayan hike. The first day of this walk, for example, will take you from Kathmandu (1400 m) to Koto (2,600 m).

When flying in from Kathmandu, the altitude gain is less than a height gain in one day compared to Lukla (2,860 m) in the Everest Region. During our guiding in the Himalayas, we have never had anyone become sick at Namche Bazaar (3,440 m) in the Everest region.

If we were to compare the Nar Phu trek elevation to the Namche trek elevation, we would estimate that it will take 4 to 5 days to reach this height. Despite the high passes, the altitude sickness rate is lower than in other Nepal hiking destinations.

This comparison demonstrates that the Nar Phu region is far superior to the Khumbu region of the Everest Base Camp Trek. However, we have no way of knowing who will be affected by altitude sickness.

It has nothing to do with age or health. Despite this, our route allows you plenty of time to acclimate. And the key is to take it carefully, stay hydrated, and pay attention to what your body is telling you.


Because the Nar Phu Valley is located in a remote part of Nepal, food prices on the Nar Phu path are often higher than those on the Annapurna Circuit. As a result of the distance, the menu options are more limited.

Anyone who has done numerous high-altitude hikes in Nepal knows that the higher you climb, the more expensive food becomes (due to having to be carried up there and in this area, by mules).

You should set aside about 5-7 dollars per meal. Around USD 25-30 each day for three meals. This excludes any alcohol (if any)! Of course, it also depends on your hunger! Even if you don’t feel hungry, keep in mind that you must eat to hike. Drinking water will increase your spending significantly.

At lower elevations, a liter of water will cost around USD 1,5 to 2 USD, while at higher altitudes, it would cost around USD 4. Bring purification tablets or a water filter to save money!


Tea houses have begun to crop up in every settlement area that services travelers, so basic lodging is not an issue in the Nar Phu Valley. For a small group of 6 to 10 hikers, this isn’t an issue.

One twin room costs from USD 5 to USD 7 per person per night when shared. If you want the entire room to yourself, the fee will be USD 5-7 twice as much.

Please be aware that, like with other trekking places, if it is really busy, you may be forced to share a room, even if you can pay for the extra bed on your own.

Trails and Routes

The Nar Phu Valley Journey is a spectacular off-the-beaten-path trek that takes you through uncharted territory in the Annapurna region’s northern reaches. Our major goal, the unusual Nar Phu valley, is reached through a hard trail.

Our journey begins in Kathmandu with a picturesque drive to Besisahar and Chamje. After that, the trip begins at Dharapani and takes us to Chame. After that, we’ll leave the Annapurna Circuit trail and travel to Meta, where we’ll be greeted by the magnificent Phu Valley.

Phu village, located near the Tibetan border, is one of Nepal’s oldest communities. The view of the Himalayas from the village of Phu is magnificent. Only 300 and 100 people live in Nar and Phu villages, respectively. During this walk, you will also pass via the magnificent Kangla Pass.

After that, we cross the Nar Phedi and arrive at the well-known Nar settlement. An acclimatization day is included in the plan, during which we will explore the Nar hamlet and the Himlung Base Camp. We next travel to Ngawal and subsequently Chame over the next few days. The trail then takes us via Besisahar to Kathmandu.

Climate and Weather

Temperatures are pleasant, skies are clear, rainfall is light, and trekking conditions are ideal during this season. In the high elevations of Nar Phu Valley, the average daily temperature ranges from 8 to 0°C. The lower parts of the hike are warmer, making it more enjoyable to walk. After March, the trekking season begins.


When is the best time for Nar Phu Valley Trek?

This hike is possible during the monsoon season (June-August) as well as the two busiest tourist seasons (June-August and September-October) (March-May and September-November). The journey is still enjoyable in the monsoon, though mud and landslides may hamper road access in the highlands to and from Besisahar. The high pass may be impassable due to snow in the winter (December-February).
