Narphu Trekking is one of the most important religious sites in Nepal Himalaya, also popular for its landscape features and Himalayan views in Annapurna Himalayan range. You can find lovely forests, amazing rock formations, yaks, Monasteries, Kang La Pass and unique Himalayan cultures in this trek.Trekking the standard Annapurna circuit, the bridge leading over the Maryland River to the steep portals of the Nar/Phu valley system is easily missed, but although the entrances is narrow and forested, the valley system above opens up to a huge expanse of high snow-peaks, ancient villages and high altitude grazing settlements.
