The Lost Valleys
We now have a proposed itinerary for the Naar – Phu trek with Project Himalaya.
Official start is in Kathmandu on 30 Sept, we would leave NZ on 28 Sept. Two days travel by bus and jeep takes us to Koto, 2600M, where the trek begins. We work our way up the valley over 4 days to Phu, 4080M. We then have about 4 days camping and exploring the upper valley towards Himlung Peak and Nagoru, the 2012 group passed through this area enroute to Saribung Peak and Mustang.
Back track a couple of days, up the Naar Valley to Naar Village, and over Kang La, 5320M. Trek will finish back at Koto, probably on 18 October, we could depart Kathmandu for home on 20 October.
We will be using mule teams to carry the gear on this trek so fewer porters. Pleased to say that Sherpa Sangge will be our Sirdar, we have now done 2 treks with Sangge, and we all liked him very much, one of the nicest people in all Nepal!
We may be fortunate to catch some of the Dashain Festival beginning on 17 October. (You can google that one)
Trek cost will be USD2360, plus airfares of around NZD 1200. Allow for tips, extras and spending money, so budget for about NZD 6500 total.
Several hands have gone up already, max. number is 12.
