Nepal Trekking Permit

Nepal Trekking Permit

Nepal is renowned for its stunning Himalayan landscapes and exceptional trekking opportunities. To ensure the safety and preservation of its natural wonders, trekkers are required to obtain various permits. These permits, such as the Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP), the Langtang National Park Permit, and the Sagarmatha National Park Permit, are essential for responsible trekking.

These permits, issued by the essential conservation or national park agencies, provide access to pristine alpine landscapes, culturally rich settlements, and spectacular panoramas. These licenses enable trekkers to experience Nepal's stunning landscape safely while contributing to the region's conservation efforts and sustainable development.

It is vital to prepare and secure the proper permits to maintain ethical trekking activities and conserve Nepal's natural beauty for future generations. An application form and supporting documentation must be submitted to a licensed trekking agency to get a group trekking permit in Nepal. Trekking costs may be paid in Nepalese money, comparable to US dollars, or in Indian rupees.

For the Upper Mustang and Upper Dolpa Regions, the remaining balance must be covered if the royalty paid for a mountain expedition is lower than the trekking permit fee. This ensures the maintenance of responsible and ethical trekking practices, contributing to preserving Nepal's natural treasures.

NATIONAL PARKS, WILDLIFE RESERVE AND CONSERVATION FEES STRUCTURE.

In addition to trekking permits, a national park permit is another essential requirement for trekking in Nepal. Nepal boasts 12 National Parks, one hunting reserve, and one wildlife reserve, all of which are under the jurisdiction of the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation (DNPWC). The DNPWC was established in 2037 BS (1980 AD) to manage and conserve Nepal's diverse wildlife and biodiversity.

These protected areas encompass a wide range of ecosystems and landscapes, spanning from the high mountain regions to the hilly and plain regions of the country. To obtain a national park permit, trekkers can visit the Bhrikuti Mandap, where the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation (DNPWC) is situated. This office is located within the Nepal Tourism Board building. It is responsible for issuing national park permits, ensuring that trekkers can explore these pristine natural areas while contributing to their conservation and preservation.
