Nar-Phu Valley Trek is restricted trekking zone use to call Hidden valley  this valley in was found in 1972 this trekking was open in 2002 before t trekkers not allow to trek in this valley. After 2002 became a famous trekking route in Nepal this valley have medieval community Nar Phu above the tree line on the upper limits of cultivation area but there landscape is very beautiful, it lies in north of Manang district. It takes five hours reaching the pass that links Nar with Manang and three other Bhotia-(Tibetan influence mountain peoples) this village, people and landscape have Tibitan influence  down valley. Nowadays, Nar Phu has about 300 inhabitants who depend on livestock, unlike most Bhotia people, whose trading patterns changed drastically after the Nepali Government closed borders with Tibet, the people of Nar and Phu valley were least affected by this change. The tortuous path leading from the valley into Tibet had never made them dependent on the salt trade, and till today yak herding is the basis of their lively hood.

 The Nepal government’s recent decision to open up Nar and Phu to tourists has evoked little enthusiasm among the villagers, whose pastoral lifestyle continues. Apart from the odd researcher and climbing expeditions permitted to climb Konggaru himal, Him lung, Ratnachuli and Gachikang, foreigners has visited the area and tourism infrastructure.
Since 2002 Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) recently extended its network to include Nar and Phu Valley, it is preparing a suitable tourism development plan at the request of the government for undiscovered valley.
