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.

Side trip Jagat Start: Add a few days of walking along the classic Annapurna Circuit by starting from Jagat.

Weather Conditions in October

change start

October begins the most popular time to trek, with moderate temperatures, clear skies in the wake of the monsoon, and a low chance of rain and snow. In recent years, the monsoon rains have receded later with weather patterns typically stabilizing in mid-October. While the chance of snow is decreased, there is the possibility of a heavy snowfall at higher elevations. If ill-timed and prolonged, this can make it difficult to cross some passes.

At a glance
On average there are 4 days with precipitation in October. The highest point on the trek is Kang La at 5306 m. During October, expect high temperatures of around 3.6°C (38°F) and lows down to -10.4°C (13°F) at Kang La.
