Restricted Area Trek

  • Introduction to Restricted Area

Trekking in restricted areas in Nepal is where the entry of foreigners is strictly controlled and you either cannot get a permit for those regions or must travel with a liaison officer and pay for a special permit. Nepal restricted area trekking is a “paradise on the earth” due to her numerous natures beauties, hidden valley, people unique culture and custom. Government of Nepal has focused on tourism for country’s welfare, even though a number of the remote areas of Nepal were restricted for foreign visitors until 1991 where the entry of foreigners is strictly controlled and even some areas are restricted still. The main objective of declaring these areas 'restricted' is to protect the natural environment and culture from outside influences. Restricted areas trekking places have yet remained unspoiled or untamed; that are of full of wilderness ecological and cultural museums. The lives of the inhabitants has rarely changed despite there has been much changed with the development of science and technology.

A trek to restricted region in Nepal must be arranged as a fully equipped organized trek through a registered trekking agency using tents, Sherpa staff, cooks and porters. Camping trek is the classic style of trekking in Nepal and is too mannered almost every part of restricted region trek. Camping treks are away from the more common trails and provide a wilderness experience in both natural and cultural feature.  Many treks that may be suggested on a map are in restricted areas and you either cannot get a permit for these areas. Groups must consist of a minimum of two clients and the required staffs. Trekkers require support 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. Parts of Nepal located in the Himalayan Region and closed to Tibet, and the people of those places have their own life and culture which is very close to Tibet culture and there are affected by the Tibetan culture, to prevent those special culture, they are restricted and the security of the country. And there are also political reasons behind the some Restrictions Trekking in Nepal. For example, in the 1970s, the Jomsom trek was closed because a major foreign-aided military operation had been mounted there in support of the Khampas in Tibet.
