Overview

Kang La Pass Trek 17 days

Kangla Pass Trek is a fantastic and classified trekking journey at a high altitude, 5,320 meters, in the Annapurna region of Nepal. Kang La pass trek in Nar Phu valley was opened to trekkers in 2002 by King Mahendra. Trekking the Kang La Pass and Thorong Pass, one of the most challenging adventure trekking trails listed on our blog, takes 20 days.

Kang La Pass trek allows you to see the magnificence of the Annapurna Himalayas and Tibetan culture, as well as rich planting spaces for the summer and winter Yarsagumba plants. A beautiful panorama of Himlung Himal 7,126 meters, Saribung peak 6,345 meters, old Buddhist monasteries, reincarnations of lamas in Buddhism (bodhisattvas) and an untouched hamlet makes up Nar and Phu Village.

Nar Phu Vally Kang La pass

In the Himalayas, Nar Phu Trek offers a glimpse of a region of raw beauty and Tibetan culture that’s a throwback to a long-gone era, one that even Tibet itself has long since forgotten. Children in this region are taught education through Buddhist texts. See the historical Tashi Lhakhang Gompa and receive blessings from the local Lama Karma Sonam Rinpoche.

The Kong la Pass Trek itinerary is more challenging to pass and has narrower trails than Thorong La Pass, but it offers spectacular views of Annapurna III, Gangapurna, Tilicho, Manaslu, Himlung, and Saribung Peaks. Phu village is at the junction of three passes, Teri La Pass, Saribung Pass via Upper Mustang, and Kang La Pass via Ngawel Manang.

As part of the Annapurna circuit trek, Manang village is also a beautiful trekker town. Upon our arrival in Manang, we can explore the Gangapurna glacier and Tilicho Lake if we have time. On the way to Thorong La pass in Nepal, the highest pass in Nepal, the trek continues. Thorong La is 5,416 meters above sea level. After passing Muktinath, Jomsom, and Pokhara, the throng flies back to Pokhara.

Kang La Pass + Thorong La Pass is organized by Nepal Wilderness Trekking Agency that coordinates with local private guides. The guides speak the local language of the area and are fluent in English. More information about Nepal trekking permits in the Restricted Zone.
