Home > Trekking Peak Permit Fees

Only open peaks are allowed for mountaineers in Nepal. Peaks above 6500 meters are classified into a number of categories that determine climbing fees and permit rules. Irrespective of the peak category and whether or not a fee applies, you must obtain permission from the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation before attempting the climb.

33 peaks below 6500m (5650m – 6500m) fall under the permit jurisdiction of Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) with official classification as ‘Trekking Peaks’. These are technical grade peaks, some easy and some very difficult climbing grades. The concept here is to provide climbers with a selection of lower peaks for the pure joy of climbing without excessive government sponsored bureaucracy and at an affordable fee.

The NMA divides the permit fees into two groups: Group A NMA Expedition Peaks and Group B NMA Climbing Peaks. The NMA allows climbing/traveling teams of a maximum of 12 members. The fee structure is as follows:

The royalty fee for Group A is U$500 for a team of up to 7 members and U$100 for each additional member up to 12 climbers.

The royalty fee for Group B is U$350 for a team of up to 4 members and U$40 for each additional member up to 8 climbers and U$25 for each additional climber above 8 up to a maximum of 12.

In addition each climbing/expedition team must make a refundable waste disposal deposit of U$250 with NMA. The NMA will return the waste after the team has disposed of it in the prescribed manner.
