Ngawal/ Nawal is one of the oldest and the largest villages in the Nyeshyang
region. Along with Manang and Bhraka, Ngawal is one of the three largest
villages of the Nyeshyang region which are collectively referred to as Manang-
tsok-sum, or the 'three Manang communities'. Because of the war-ridden past,
all the villages were built at places where they could be defended well and as
a result, many a Nyeshyangba villages can be reached only after a steep uphill
climb; Ngawal is no exception. Ngawal has a gompa which is considered very
important by the Buddhist people residing there. Also, there is a cave called
Ne Guru cave on the northern part of the village which will take you at least
30 minutes. Further up from that cave you can enter the valley of Nar via
5,306 m. high Kang-la. At that height, the pass is a mere 100 m lower than the
Thorung-la but is considered a difficult pass which is why not many people
prefer this pass and opt to go to Nar valley via Koto.
The view is just as amazing from here as it is from Ghyaru. The northern view
of the Annapurna range will be waiting for your awestruck faces unless there
are thick clouds.
