Overview of Annapurna Trek with Nar and Phu along Kang La

With time the roads are being advance from south on both side, its circuit nature will not be same as more trekkers and getting there by buses or jeeps as soon as they can.

Though the people are getting benefited from tourism industry and the tourist are getting basic goods in reduced cost with better access; the place seems to lose its natural tranquilly.

Within a period of time the old trails are being replaced by new. Nowadays, a joint venture of Nepal Tourism Board and TAAN are developing a new trekking trail on the east of Kali Gandaki( in lower Mustang) avoiding the road. Apart from this some other groups are trying to cross over Tilicho rather than Thorung La.

The package too has a side trek to the villages of Nar and Phu crossing Kang La. The area is opened to foreign trekkers only since 2002. From Kota the trail goes uphill through the forests, gorges, narrow canyons and gompas along to the traditional villages. Passing alpine splendor we will trek into glacial valleys including Himlung Base Camp. while returning we will head to the west of Kang La which offers the astonishing view of Annapurna which gives a epic end to this side trip before joining the regular trail below Manang.

Monsoon Trekking

While trekking the weather condition cannot be predicted, the Manang valley and villages of Nar and Phu receives much less rainfall than the Pokhara. It does not mean that we are daring to say that we will be trekking under blue skies in monsoon period, as the large portion of Annapurna range receive terrible rainfall, making huge snowy glaciers roll down protecting the valley behind.

The available amount of oxygen to sustain mental and physical alertness decreases with altitude. Available oxygen drops as the air density itself, the number of molecules (of both oxygen and nitrogen) per given volume, drops as altitude increases. So don’t ignore, if you have any symptoms then descending to a lower altitude is the only option.

Water: Have some means to purify water, iodine or a fine ceramic filter are the best options. The streams should be considered polluted and whilst bottled water is often available, the disposal of plastic bottles is a problem.
