Such villages overlook some of the region's majestic mountains, such as Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Gangapurna, Tilicho, Chulu West and Chulu East. Nar Phu Valley Trek organized by Top of the World Adventure starts from the point of departure of the Annapurna Circuit trek as you drive to Syange before reaching Dharapani and Chame. But instead of going to Pisang like on the Annapurna Circuit Trek, head out to Koto village before you reach the Phu Valley. Phu, one of Nepal's oldest villages, lies fairly close to the north Tibetan frontier. As a result, from Phu you get some stunning views of the Himalayan mountains. You will join the Annapurna Circuit trekkers after an exploration of the Phu Valley as you head out to Manang before finally reaching Thorong la Pass (5416), the highest point along this trek. During this trek you will cross another mountain pass-Kangla Pass (5306 metres).

You will also visit the old Buddhist monastery mentioned out of the 108 great Buddhist monasteries of the world-Tashi Lhakhang Monastery. The monastery in Manang called the Braga Monastery will also give you insights into this region's buddhist history. Muktinath-Hindus ' holy temple, as well as Buddhists, is another spot you can enter during the Nar Phu Valley Trek. A visit to these religious sites will give you plenty of opportunities to learn the region's culture. During this trek, the villages you will visit will also give you ample time to learn about the various ethnicities in Nepal, such as Gurung and Tamang. Ultimately, stepping into the project Annapurna Conservation Area gives you a great opportunity to see this region's beautiful flora and fauna. ACAP is also a popular place for bird watchers as this area is full of various bird species like Danphe-Nepal's national bird.
