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 via Thorung La: After the Kang La take advantage of your acclimatization and continue along the classic Annapurna Circuit. From Manang there is an option to take the spectacular side trip to Tilicho Lake, or continue directly over the Thorung La (5416 m) descending to the pilgrim town of Muktinath, a sacred place for both Hindus and Buddhists. From Muktinath, you have the option to take a jeep via the wide valley of lower Mustang to Jomson, where both flights and buses to Pokhara can be arranged, or trek via the traditional village of Kagbeni, gateway to upper Mustang. While the road has taken some of the charm out of this classic trek, the advantage is that a trip can be tailored around one’s interests and time constraints. Whether you do the epic full circuit from Besi Sahar to Ghorepani, or take off a bite sized chunk around the Thorung La, the Annapurna Circuit still has plenty to offer.
