Nar Phu Valley was opened for trekking in 2003 and is a restricted area, which means that trekkers need a special permit to visit this area. The valley is located in the north of Manang district and is situated along the old trade route to Tibet. The valley is surrounded by majestic mountains, including Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and Lamjung Himal.

The trail is less crowded, and the scenery is stunning, making it a perfect destination for trekkers who seek solitude and tranquility.

The Nar Phu Valley trek can take up to 16 days and is suitable for experienced trekkers who are in good physical condition. The best time to trek to Nar Phu Valley is from March to May and September to November, when the weather is stable, and the skies are clear.

Oh, that's pretty interesting, I've never heard of that. I can say that I'm a huge fan of travelling, and I'll definitely consider going there one day. Can you tell me more about the food there? I usually take secretfoodtours to make sure I discover all the hidden gems and not miss anything, and it actually helps me get the most incredible experience.
