We (two guys) are looking at doing the Nar Phu valley trek as an extension to our trip. That would be mid to late September.
We will be travelling independantly where possible and will continue on the Annapurna circuit.
I understand that we need a 7 day restricted area permit and guide. Accepted that the guide may have travel expenses on top of their fee.
In real terms we need a permit and guide for the 7 days but naturally understand we need to cover additional charges including the guides transportation.
According to government rules we need to arrange our restricted area permits through an agency.
Is it then possible to hire a guide on a daily rate (approx $25-30 day) from Besisahar and throughout the Nar Phu trek? Does this have to be through the agency that organise the permits?
Anyone done this?
Any other advice on the most practical or economical way to go about this.
