    Kang-Guru-from-NarphuMt. Kang Guru and in Nar-Phu valley, above the tree line on the upper limits of cultivation, in the very north of Manang district. It takes five hours reaching the pass that links Nar with Manang and three other Bhotia villages in the Nyershang down valley. The Government's of Nepal 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 Kang Guru 6701m. Mt. Himlung, Mt. Ratna Chuli and Mt. Gyajin Kang, few foreigners have visited the area and tourism infrastructure is almost non-existent. Since Annapurna Conservation Area Project recently extended its network to include Nar and Phu Valley.

    Travelers trek and expedition through the Himalayan foothills and round the eastern end of the Annapurna before they arrive at Qupar, a police check post half and hour before Chame, Manang's district headquarters. From here a long and steep trail winds up to Nar and Phu whose villagers, laden with goods purchased in Chame and even lower down in Besi Shahar, the end of the road head leading to Manang, often camp at Dharmashala, a rudimentary wooden hut built by the people from the two villages. Mt. Kang Guru becomes a most popular and mountain for the climbers since 2005.
