Nar-phu valley trek is least visited trekking destination of Nepal. Narphu valley trekking is newly open off the beaten path trekking trail of Annapurna trekking region

 Nar Village sits above a large flat plain which make up the extensive agriculture fields being plowed by teams of humans and their yak.
