Experience Counts…

Tanya Perret has been guiding Nepal since 1998, she is conversant in Nepalese and considers Nepal as her second home. ‘Our aim is to put together the best possible tour, listening to your needs and meeting your requirements every step of the way.’

  • The hidden valley of Naar Phu is a restricted area, to the east of the Annapurna Range. Breaking off from the traditional Annapurna Circuit at Koto, we head into the dry, arid, landscape of Naar Phu, traditionally settled by Tibetan salt traders several hundred years ago. With narrow canyons, high mountain passes, amazing rock formations, snowy mountain peaks and incredible monasteries this makes for a wonderfully diverse trip.
  • Sample traditional Nepalese food including Dhal Bhat (rice and lentils), momo’s (steamed meat parcels) and maybe taste some Chang (local rice wine)!
  • Experience the beauty of the Himalaya’s including the fauna, flora, and culture including insights into the many different ethnic groups of Nepal. Notably on his trek we have the opportunity to visit some incredible Buddhist monasteries in some very remote locations.
  • The Grade for this trip is ‘Strenuous‘ requiring excellent levels of fitness and stamina to complete this demanding trek.

Variation of the above?

Maybe you want to do something a little different, there are many possibilities so don’t hesitate to get in touch and we can create an itinerary to meet your needs. We are also very close to the lakeside town of Pokhara making the perfect location for some R&R after your trek.

What accommodation do we use during the trip?

Kathmandu offers a vast selection of Hotels from bespoke Boutique Hotels such as the wonderful Shambala near the US Embassy, 5* Palaces (Shrangrila, Yak and Yeti) to simple Guesthouse accommodation, the choice is yours. On trek we predominantly camp, however before we enter the Naar Phu valley we use a selection of simple teahouses.

How difficult is the walking?

This trip is graded as strenuous with all the Hikes taking between 8 – 10 hrs. Your mountain leader is exceptionally experienced at managing trekking groups and will ensure there is ample opportunity for taking photos, visiting teahouses / monastries and enjoying the flora and fauna of the Himalayas. Our itineraries are designed to help you acclimatise slowly and safely.  For more information on our grades, click HERE.
