A fantastic experience in a natural and unexplored part of Nepal positioned in the remote corner of the Annapurna region. The trek usually begins from Besisahar. The Nar and Phu Valleys only opened for visitors in 2002. This is exotic terrain that offers medieval Tibetan culture in a pristine and almost untouched form.There are some spectacular mountain views and great alpine scenery, Tilicho lake and the surrounding geography near the end of the trek only helps to make this trek more amazing for those adventurers who are in search of a real Shangri-La. The trail passes through the Challenging high passes, Kangla pass (5322m) and Tilicho Pass (5340m) both offer fantastic views of the Annapurna massif, Lamjung Himal, Manaslu Himal, the Dhaulagiri range and Tilicho peak. This is an ideal trek for those who want to discover a hidden valley and trek off the beaten trail.Challenging high passes mean that you do need to be fit.

After travelling through the unique Nar Phu valley, we return to Manang, a beautiful village on the Annapurna trail,then continue the trek to Tilicho Lake,the highest lake in the world, followed by the onward trekking to Mesokanto La before reaching Jomsom.
