It’s all about Trekking!

Teahouse trekking along the main tracks is the most common style, with courteous lodges in every settlement; it is likely to trek in ease with negligible preparation, support & equipment. There is no need to camp and an assortment of western style foods is enthusiastically available from a menu system. No special licenses are mandatory, just national park admission tickets and the TIMS permit. The chief places for these treks are Langtang Khumbu and Annapurna. The Manaslu Circuit Trek has become potential without camping in tea-houses, though it is mandatory a US$ 50 per week permit and must be trekked with a guide since 2010. The trek to Lo Manthang in Upper Mustang is similar: no camping is required as many comfortable lodges are available, but a permit is necessary which keeps many budget tourists away.
Amenities available in secluded areas are less extensive than in the more famous areas. Off the main trails where there are no food and lodges from menus a Nepali guide becomes necessary, and it may be advisable or necessary to visit such areas with structured groups, counting guide, full support & porters. Kanchenjunga, Makalu Barun, Humla, Rolwaling, Dolpo, are in remote areas. Many of them also involve special permits.
Only TAAN authorised trekking agencies in Pokhara & Kathmandu can legally categorize treks and offer the services of a guide or porter with assurance. Be conscious that no hotel, no one else, no nice person you just met, no street broker, not even a trekking guide is legally registered to organize a trek. During the core seasons the agencies run usual group treks, both tea-house and camping styles, and it is commonly possible to join a group doing a trek of your option. Independent trekking is quite simple in the major trekking areas.
Required Permits: a trekking permit given by the Department of Immigration is compulsory to trek in any region of Nepal, except the most famous places of Khumbu, Annapurna, and Langtang/Helambu. Those areas were affirmed permit-free in 1999. Individual TIMS is available only from Nepal Tourism Board offices and the Trekking Agents organization of Nepal office. Not even Trekking Agents are legally registered to obtain individual TIMS (even do many diminutive Trekking Agents will offer the individual TIMS). Park officers & Police check points can at any time check your permits. Trekking is an experience which at least one should take once in life.
