Trekking Permit Cost In Nepal

Trekking Permit Cost In Nepal

To Trek in Nepal, you will need two primary permits: the TIMS (Trekkers’ Information Management System) card and the Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP) or the Sagarmatha National Park Permit, depending on the region you plan to trek in. Here’s some information about each permit:

TIMS Card:

The TIMS card is a mandatory permit for all trekkers in Nepal, including individual trekkers and those trekking in a group. It is designed to ensure the safety and security of trekkers and to collect data on trekking activities in the country. The card helps in tracking trekkers and providing necessary assistance in case of emergencies. To obtain a TIMS card, you need to follow these steps:

A. Choose whether you will trek as an individual or with a group. Independent trekkers and those trekking with an individual trekking guide need to apply for an individual TIMS card. If you are trekking with a registered trekking agency, they will obtain a group TIMS card on your behalf.

B. Fill out the TIMS application form, which includes details about your trekking route, duration, and personal information.

C. Submit the completed form along with the required fees at the TIMS counter in Kathmandu or Pokhara. As of March 2023, the fee for an individual TIMS card is NPR 2,000 (approximately USD 20), per person.

Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP) or Sagarmatha National Park Permit:

 These permits are specific to the regions you plan to trek in.

A. Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP): If you are trekking in the Annapurna region, you will need to obtain the ACAP. The Annapurna Conservation Area is one of the most popular trekking regions in Nepal. To obtain the ACAP, you can visit the Nepal Tourism Board’s office in Kathmandu or the ACAP office in Pokhara. The cost of the ACAP varies depending on the season and duration of your trek.

B. Sagarmatha National Park Permit: If you are trekking to the Everest Base Camp or any other region within the Sagarmatha National Park, you will need to obtain the Sagarmatha National Park Permit. You can obtain this permit from the Nepal Tourism Board’s office in Kathmandu or the Sagarmatha National Park Permit Office in Monjo, which is en route to the Everest region.

Manaslu Region Permit

To trek in the Manaslu region of Nepal, you will need three permits:

 The Manaslu Restricted Area Permit, the Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP), and the Manaslu Conservation Area Permit (MCAP). Here’s some information about each permit:

1-Manaslu Restricted Area Permit: The Manaslu Restricted Area Permit is a special permit required for trekking in the Manaslu region. This permit is necessary to regulate the number of trekkers in the area and to protect the environment and cultural heritage of the region. Here are the key details about the Manaslu Restricted Area Permit:

Manaslu Region Special Permit

A. Permit Fee: The permit fee for the Manaslu Restricted Area varies depending on the season. During the peak season (September to November), the permit fee is USD 100 per week per person. From December to August, the fee is USD 75 per week per person.

B. Permit Application: To obtain the Manaslu Restricted Area Permit, you need to trek with a registered trekking agency, and after booking your trek they will handle the permit application process on your behalf. The agency will require your passport details and necessary trekking information to apply for the permit.

2- Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP): The ACAP permit is also required for trekking in the Manaslu region because the initial part of the trek follows the Annapurna Conservation Area. The information about the ACAP permit, including where to obtain it and the cost, is the same as mentioned in my previous response.

3- Manaslu Conservation Area Permit (MCAP): In addition to the Manaslu Restricted Area Permit and the ACAP, trekkers in the Manaslu region are also required to obtain the MCAP. This permit helps in conservation efforts and supports local development projects in the Manaslu Conservation Area. The MCAP permit can be obtained from the same offices as the ACAP permit, and the cost is the same as mentioned below.

It’s important to note that trekking in the Manaslu region requires trekking with a registered trekking agency and a minimum group size of two people. Additionally, you must have a licensed guide accompanying you throughout the trek.
