The trek to Phugaon, Nar and over the Kang La pass is a hidden jewel of the Annapurna Region. It combines spectacular mountain scenery with vibrant Tibetan culture in a remote and rustic setting. For those looking to get off the beaten track and explore the hidden wonders of Nepal the trek to Nar and Phu is the perfect choice.

Side trip Humde to Besi Sahar via Jeep Finish: If you are in a rush it is possible to catch a jeep hike all the way to Humde and catch a shared jeep to Besi Sahar the next day and reduce the trek by a day. Keep in mind there are fewer jeeps than leave from Chame.

Weather Conditions in February

change start

February has a slightly higher chance of precipitation than January and a slight increase in the chance of clouds, but in general it is typically a very dry month. While there is little rain, skies in the hills and valleys further from the high mountains can be hazy from dust and pollution. At high altitudes, temperatures can drop to well below freezing. Even during the day, temperatures may not rise much above freezing, if at all, and the snow that does fall doesn’t melt and can become hard and icy. This can make crossing high passes more difficult. During this season it may be wise to bring crampons or at a minimum a good trekking pole.

At a glance
On average there are 3 days with precipitation in February. The highest point on the trek is Kang La at 5306 m. During February, expect high temperatures of around -2.4°C (28°F) and lows down to -19.4°C (-3°F) at Kang La.
