Can I Do The Nar Phu Valley Trek?

Nar Phu Valley Trek is challenging but does not need technical skills like climbing peaks. Anyone with prior trekking experience can onboard this adventurous hike to the Nar Phu Valley.

This trek requires a considerable amount of physical fitness and a positive mentality. It comprises a 22-day itinerary and mostly focuses on the rugged routes of remote Mid-Western Nepal. Trekkers go through around 6 to 7 hours of hiking every day through the uphill, downhill, basins, and the banks of Marsyangdi Valley during this trek. If you are okay with walking through the steep landscapes and the vulnerability of high-altitude passes, there’s nothing to worry about. On top of that, always remember to take safety precautions and listen to the instructions of guides.

When To Go For Nar Phu Valley Trek?

If you see the trekking trends throughout the years in Nepal, Spring and Autumn Seasons are considered the best time to go for Nar Phu Valley Trek. Here is why:

Spring

The months from March to May in Nepal are regarded as Spring Season, which brings colorful flowers and green leaves into the forest. This allows trekkers to have the region’s beautiful scenery, including full-flower-bloomed forests and green valleys.

The temperature around the Nar Phu Valley region will be around 7 to 10 Degrees Celsius. But you should prepare well for the night times in high-altitude locations like Kang La Pass and Kang La Phedi.

Autumn

The Autumn season also brings pleasant weather conditions with a dry environment. This makes trekkers’ navigation more easy and safe. The sky gets blue with fewer clouds, and the rainfall and wind precipitation are relatively low.

The temperatures during the Autumn in the Nar Phu Valley region will be around 14 to 20 Degrees Celsius in the daytime. It can drop to -5/10 Degrees Celsius at night, so carrying warm clothes and sleeping bags are crucial.

Although spring and autumn are regarded as the best season for Trekking and Hiking in Nepal, it can be done all the year around. Basically, Nepal experiences four seasons and each season has its own distinct feature. Here, we are going to tell you in short about it. Let’s have a look.

Winter Season (December- February):

Though winter is counted as off season for trekking in Nepal, it is an ideal option for the trekkers who don’t like to travel in crowded trails. There will be snowfall at higher elevations and it gets colder during night. Days are still warmer with plenty of sun shines and clear blue skies. Winter can be the best time to trek towards Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Dhaulagiri Trek, and Annapurna Sanctuary Trek etc.

Summer Season (June- August):

Nepal experiences summer rainfall. Therefore, the trekking will be difficult during summer. The trails will be wet, muddy, and slippery. There will be occasional flood and landslides in some places. However, rain shadow zone like Manang and Mustang may offer perfect travelling experience even in winter.

Altitude Sickness

Altitude Sickness also known as mountain sickness is the condition in which our body could not adjust to the environment due to the less barometric pressure. When we move to the high altitude the barometric pressure will be less and our body couldn’t adjust to that air pressure due to which we feel nausea, dizziness, fatigue, vomiting, headache, loss of appetite, shortness of sleep etc. which is called Altitude sickness. In terms of its complexities, altitude sickness is grouped into three categories:

  •  Acute Mountain Sickness: It is very common at high altitude and can cause vomiting, dizziness, nausea etc. overall, it is the mildest form of altitude sickness.
  •  High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE): It is a very dangerous and life threatening conditions because fluid is built up in the lungs.
  •  High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE): It is the most severe stage of Altitude Sickness because fluid is built up in the brain. It is life threatening one. The victim will be unable to walk, breathe and ultimately in Coma.

    Altitude Sickness can suffer anyone who attempt high altitude. If you feel any symptoms associated with Altitude Sickness along with headache, you need to change your elevation. It means climb down to the lower elevations. If the symptoms are severe, you need medical attention. We can prevent Altitude Sickness also. For the same, do not climb hurriedly, acclimatize properly, drink plenty of fresh water, do not drink or smoke, eat hygienic.
