Nar-phu valley Trekking is probably the best trek of Annapurna region for those who want to explore hidden valley and trek off the beaten crossing through challenging high passes like Masokanto La (5099m), Kangla pass (5200m) & Tilicho Pass (5230m) with a beautiful Lake Tilicho. Hidden by swirls of mountain mist ahead of us, from Kangla pass at 5200m the magnificent panorama view of Annapurna massif appears remote and forbidding.

Nar and Phu valley is recently opened for trekkers by the Government of Nepal after long demand of tourism entrepreneurs and trekkers. It was forbidden for open visit for the reason of border security and preserving the cultural value.
