Getting trek permits and TIMS cards in Nepal

Trek Permits and TIMS cards in Nepal

Getting trek permits and TIMS cards in Nepal is not an easy task. Every foreign traveler arriving in Nepal for trekking must get their permits and TIMS card. This article thus guides you through to get all your permits and TIMS (Trekkers’ Information Management System) cards.

With Nepal Tourism Board’s recent requirement of a mandatory guide to all foreigners seeking a trekking expedition across the nation, Cordial Trek has begun its exclusive service for the same.

Moreover, in order to ensure the safety and security of visitors trekking in protected areas in the mountains of Nepal, Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) has revised procedures of the Trekking Information Management System (TIMS). With the new provision, all trekkers are required to obtain services of licensed trekking guide and to obtain TIMS Card through authorized trekking agencies registered with the Government of Nepal.

The new provision shall come into effect post March 31, 2023.

Additionally, the decision has been taken subsequent to a series of discussions with the trekking and expedition stakeholders and relevant trade unions in Nepal, to help mitigate adverse incidents like getting lost en-route, health issues and/ or natural disasters etc. With this implementation, the trekkers will have immediate access to a professional support system and will help in addressing the challenges of rescue operations in case of any unwarranted situation. 

Furthermore, we also organize various trek and travel plans across Nepal. You may as well remember us for Everest Base Camp (EBC) Trek, Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) Trek and Langtang Valley Trek among others.


Revised Tariff:

Trekking Permit (National Park and ACAP)USD 23
TIMS (Trekking Information Management System) CardUSD 16
Trekking Guide USD 30 Per Day
PorterUSD 25 Per Day
Note: There will be added charges for government taxes as well as the service provided.
