Trekking Permits & Fees

Trekking Permit

To trek in any part of Nepal, a trekking permit is required. The normal visa is only valid for the towns and the places reachable by road. All trekkers require a trekking permit to visit Nepal’s interior regions, which are not connected by highways.Recently the Annapurna, Langtang and Everest regions have been declared “permit free" areas; but National Park or Conservation Area fees apply. We process the trekking permits and national park entrances at immigration offices in Kathmandu and Pokhara.
