Nar-Phu Valley trekking Hidden through swirls of mountain mist in advance of us, from Kangla bypass at 5200m the mind-blowing landscape view of Annapurna massif appears remote and forbidding.
Our robust mountain ponies each few steps, their steaming sweat-soaked bodies heaving. at the back of us Hongde airport, which we left on the back of early within the morning, is a tiny speck. Our vacation spot is the Nar-Phu valley, above the tree line at the top limits of cultivation, within the very north of Manang district. It takes five hours attaining the pass that links Nar with Manang and 3 other Bhotia villages inside the Nyershang down the valley. in recent times, Nar Phu the populace about three hundred population who rely upon livestock, in contrast to maximum Bhotia human beings, whose buying and selling patterns modified significantly after the Nepali government closed borders with Tibet, the humans of Nar and Phu valley have been least laid low with this modification. The tortuous path main from the valley into Tibet had in no way made them depending on the salt trade, and till these days yak herding is the basis of their livelihood.
