Annapurna Nar Phu Tilicho trek – An Exploration to recently opened remote Nar Phu Valley, high passes and Tilicho Lake in Annapurna region.
Annapurna Nar Phu Tilicho trek – part of Great Himalayan Trail – remote trekking into the vastness of Annapurna
The Annapurna Nar Phu Tilicho trek is an ideal for those trekkers who have time and appetite to venture into some of the less trodden remote regions of Nepal beyond the regular trekking routes. This tented plus tea house mode of trek offers the pictorial landscape of recently opened region of Nar and Phu valley, situated just north of popular Annapurna circuit route. The Nar Phu valley topography is trans Himalayan and similar to that of Tibet. Trails are still rugged that has changed little over the years. We spend few days in exploring this remote valley and cross the Kang La pass (5300m) on the way to Manang. Leaving famed Manang we head to Jomsom via the best-kept secret remote trekking route of Meso Kantu pass (5099m) and the world’s highest situated outstanding Tilicho Lake (5300m). The entire trekking route of Annapurna Nar Phu Tilich trek is a section of GHT the Great Himalayan Trail.
This less trodden trail of Mesokunda pass in the Annapurna Nar Phu Tilicho trek offers a more challenging and exciting alternative to the popular Thorong La pass on the Annapurna Circuit trekking route. We take an exciting mountain flight from Jomsom to Pokhara via the Kali Gandaki gorge with stunning Himalayan ranges of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna on both sides. We spend a night in Pokhara, an adventure hub destination of its own for many tourists visiting into Nepal every year before returning back to Kathmandu to savour our exhilarating journey to Nar Phu valley and Tilicho lake trip in the vastness of the Annapurna.
