What documentation for trekking Nepal do I need to provide?

Once you’ve confirmed your booking, we’ll ask you to provide the following documentation for trekking Nepal:

Flight Details

We need international flight arrival and departure details to organise your airport transfers. When you arrive in Kathmandu, Krishna or your guide will be waiting for you with a sign.

Passport Details for Trekking Permits

Where possible we’ll organise your trekking permits before you arrive in Nepal. This is really important if you’re flying into Kathmandu and then directly to Pokhara.

Annapurna Region – we need a scanned copy of each trekker’s passport details page and a high quality scanned photo of each trekker.

Everest Region – we need a scanned copy of each trekker’s passport details page.

Langtang Region – we need a scanned copy of each trekker’s passport details page.

Manaslu Region* – we need your original passports to obtain your trekking permits for the restricted area of Manaslu. Please also bring two passport photos of each trekker for your permits.

Upper Mustang Region* – we need your original passports to obtain your trekking permits for the restricted area of Upper Mustang. Please also bring two passport photos of each trekker for your permits.

*We’ll need to build a day into your itinerary to wait for your permits to be processed. We usually plan sightseeing in Kathmandu so you can enjoy some of the seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites while you wait!

We need these documents at least 14 days before you’re due to arrive in Nepal. This gives us time to reserve your domestic flights and organise your trekking permits.

Trekker Emergency Information Form

We ask each trekker to complete this online form before leaving home. It’s important for us to keep this information on file, so that we can take action quickly and easily in the event of an emergency.

Travel Insurance Certificate

Whilst it’s not mandatory, we strongly recommend that you purchase comprehensive travel insurance for your trip. You can email a copy of your certificate to us, or just include the details in your trekker emergency information form.
