Restricted Area Treks > Trekking

Trekking in Restricted Area of Nepal needs special trekking permit. Environmentally, Culturally and politically very sensetive area of Nepal are listed as restricted area. Many places of Nepal are still controlled by the Government of Nepal to enter the foreigners. For the special purpose the area are controlled strictly to entry.

Upper Mustang, Upper Dolpo, Manaslu, Tsum Valley, Kanchenjunga, Makalu are the popular trekking destinations needs special trekking permit from Government of Nepal.

Officially there are no longer any restricted areas in Nepal. The immigration office rules now state that “trekkers are not allowed to trek in the notified areas previously known as restricted”. Rather than get involved in all this semantic complication, the term “restricted” is used here to refer to places that are closed to trekkers, or open to trekkers only when accompanied by a policeman (a liaison or “environmental” officer).

Our restricted area trekking package suggest you how to travel in these places. Most of the Tibetan border side places are consider as restricted area and possible to travel only with a liaison officer and pay for a special permit. The government of Nepal is fully responsible to grant the permit for the travel. If the police in the check post of this area found you without the permit, you will be turn back.

There are many reasons why the restricted areas exist. In most cases, it is a hangover from a time when the border with China was more sensitive than it is now. Environmental groups, particularly the Nepal Nature Conservation Society, are pressuring the government to keep some places closed for ecological reasons to avoid both cultural and environmental degradation. Because trekkers require assistance when something goes wrong (accident, illness or theft), the government restricts some areas because it doubts that it could provide the security that trekkers need. There are also political reasons for some restrictions.
