Trekking Permit


A valid permit is required for certain areas to visit or trek, which we will obtain upon your arrival. We will require two working days and two passports size photographs. Permits are not required for the Annapurna, Everest and Langtang treks. However, conservation fees are required for these national parks.

Disposal of rubbish:

We recommend that each trekker have to keep a small bag during the course of the trip. Each morning a small fire is lit for burnable rubbish. Any non-burnable or non-biodegradable rubbish should be carried back to Kathmandu and disposed appropriately. An amount of US$250.00 should be deposited as garbage deposite to get permit to all 33 peaks for climbing. The refund shall be made as per the provisions made.


 

Money and valuable securities:

Always carry Nepalese rupees in small bills on your trek. The amount to be carried depends on the area and the duration of the trek. A guideline for this will be presented during our trek briefing. Money will only be required for the purchasing bottled drinks and souvenirs along the way. Other money and valuables stuffs are to be kept in a safe deposit box in your hotel in Kathmandu.
