Nar Phu Valley trek difficulty and altitude sickness

Nar Phu valley trek is a demanding trek. It is an adventurous challenging trek in one of the untouched parts of the Himalayas in Nepal. The trekking route is steep and offbeat. The Nar Phu valley trek is best for trekkers with previous trekking experience and strong fitness. This trek is not like the famous Annapurna base camp and Everest base camp treks. The journey tests your endurance and pushes your limits to the next level. 

The average daily trekking hours is 6, however some days can go up to 8 hours of walking, whereas some end in 4-5 hours. With each passing day, you will gain altitude, so acclimatization is a big part of successful Nar Phu valley trekking. Likewise, the Nar Phu valley trail is visited by a limited number of trekkers, so the infrastructure of the trekkers is very basic. 

Given all the challenges from off-the-beaten-trail to high altitude and limited facilities along the trail, the Nar Phu valley trek is considered strenuous. If you are new to trekking, then we highly recommend not considering the Nar Phu valley trek as your first endeavor. At the same time, if you are physically fit and can withstand all the challenges of this trek, you may join us on the Nar Phu valley trek 15 days. 

Fitness for the trek:

Nar Phu valley trekking requires long hours of walking and navigating steep slopes. You have to be strong and capable of walking for at least 6 hours a day. If you do regular exercise and walk long hours, you can prepare yourself physically for the trek. You do not have to be athletic and super strong to join the Nar Phu valley trek 15 days, however a fit body will make the journey bearable. 

Accommodation and meals during the Nar Phu Valley trek

During the Nar Phu valley trek, tea houses are common accommodations. Sharing the room with fellow trekkers is also common because of limited tea house availability. In some places, we may spend the night in a monastery, sharing the space with monks. Do understand that Nar Phu valley is much more remote than you may have thought. Single rooms are also available, but you have to inform us at the time of booking. 

Tea houses along the Nar Phu valley trek route are basic. It is more like a homestay with the warm hospitality of the locals. The rooms will be small but clean and cozy, so you will have a good night's sleep. The washrooms are mostly shared. Some places may have private washrooms. You can carry a blanket for an additional layer of warmth and comfort during the trek. There is no heater in the rooms, however the dining area is usually warm because of the open fireplace. 

The meals in the tea houses are fresh and locally sourced mostly. Whatever you order there is a high chance that you will get freshly prepared and cooked food. Nonveg dishes are not available in all teahouses. The meat is usually frozen. Make sure to ask your guide to check the freshness of the meat before ordering. Dal bhat, thukpa, momo, and Tibetan bread are the staple dishes during the Nar Phu valley trek. 

Other dishes like sandwiches, porridge, pasta, soup, mashed potatoes, chapati, curries, etc, are available. The breakfast menu usually includes toast with jam, butter, eggs, etc. For dessert, there is apple pie and hot chocolate. Carry enough snacks and bars to have while trekking. Likewise, get yourself a 2 liter water bottle and refill it throughout the trek. Boiled drinking water is available in all tea houses. 

The best time to do Nar Phu Valley trekking

Like any other trek in the Himalayas, the best time to do the Nar Phu valley trek 15 days is from March to May and September to November. These two seasons have the ideal weather conditions and moderate climate for trekking. Likewise, the lower part of the trail is bloomed with a range of flowers and vegetation. 

You can also do the Nar Phu valley trek in the summer/monsoon season between June to August. As this region falls under the rain shadow area, the upper part of the trail does not see any rainfall. Trekking in the winter season (December to February) is the most difficult because of heavy snowfall and trail blockage. 

Nar Phu Valley trek tips

  • Travel Insurance: There is no hospital in the Nar Phu valley. Likewise, there is also no road for transportation. In case of a medical emergency, we have to use a helicopter rescue to evacuate you to a hospital in Pokhara or Kathmandu. Providing emergency air evacuation is only possible on time with the help of travel insurance. So, you have to get travel insurance with emergency air evacuation and medical bill coverage.
  • Passport & Visa: To book the Nar Phu valley trek, you have to send the passport of the participants. It has to be valid for at least six months from the day you enter Nepal. Likewise, you will also need a travel visa to enter Nepal. Travelers from many countries can apply for on-arrival visas upon landing at the Tribhuvan International Airport. Alternative options are getting it from the Nepalese Embassy or Consulate Office in your country. 
  • Hot Shower: Locals use firewood or gas to hear the water, so most of the time you have to pay USD 5 for a hot shower. You may not get a chance to take a hot shower at the upper part of the trail. For days like this, carry wet wipes to stay fresh. 
  • Luggage: Keep your luggage as light as possible, yet make sure you have all the little essentials with you. Each trekker has a 10 kg weight limit for a duffel bag and a 5 kg weight limit for a daypack. Store any additional luggage in our office or your hotel's locker room free of cost during the trek duration.
  • Charging & Internet: The Nar Phu valley is very remote with limited network connectivity. Keep your expectations as low as possible to use the internet on this trek. Get Nepali tourist sim in Kathmandu and use data whenever possible. Likewise, charging stations are built separately in the tea houses. You may have to pay USD 2 to USD 3 to charge your devices. Carry extra batteries and power banks. A solar charger will also come in handy. 
  • Tips: Tip the trekking guide, porter, tour guide, and drivers at the end of their service. Offering tips are common in Nepal and well appreciated. USD 100 by each member of the group, on average is a decent number for trek guides and porters. Likewise, USD 2 to drivers and USD 5 to tour guides are fine. You can tip as much as you wish.
