Nepal Government assigns TAAN to implement
Trekking Registration Certificate (TRC)
Registration Required for trekkers
With a view to checking
illegal operations in the trekking industry and ensuring safety and
security of trekkers, the Nepal Government has introduced a new rule
that requires all trekkers to go on trekking in various parts of the
country only through registered trekking agencies after obtaining a
Trekking Registration Certificate (TRC) from Trekking Agents
Association of Nepal (TAAN). As an umbrella organization of more than
550 registered trekking companies of Nepal, TAAN has been authorized by
the Nepal Government to issue TRC and the new rule is scheduled to come
into force from October 1, 2006. TAAN will charge a minimum
amount of money as administrative and service fee for issuing TRC. As a
record of trekkers, TRC incorporates their personal details, trekking
routes, duration, etc. The provision is introduced in order
to upgrade the service standard and for better management of
sustainable mountain tourism development in Nepal. Trekking without TRC
is illegal and subject to charge fines and other punishments in
accordance with the laws of the Nepal Government.
Importance and Necessity of TRC
It is very important to have a
kind of monitoring and facilitating system in place for any sort of
outdoor activity that involves physical risk. Trekking is a major
outdoor activity in Nepal's mountain tourism. Given the rugged physical
condition and remoteness of almost all trekking areas of Nepal's
Himalayan mountain region, a record system is very essential that would
be helpful in monitoring the safety and security of trekkers. The past
experiences have shown that difficulties have been faced while carrying
out rescue operations promptly during the times of natural calamities.
Because of lack of proper record system of trekkers, their exact
whereabouts and the information about trekking routes, rescue and
search missions used to face difficulties in spotting the trekkers
The Nepal Government is very
serious about implementing TRC as a mechanism to control all sorts of
anomaly, including illegal operations, and to ensure safety and
security of trekkers. Therefore, TAAN, as a national tourism
organization working in the field of sustainable mountain tourism in
Nepal, has been entrusted with the responsibility of implementing TRC.
As per TAAN’s proposed hassle-free procedure, TRC is being
issued to each and every trekker traveling only through the registered
The decision regarding the
introduction of TRC is a welcome step taken in its policies and
programmes by the Nepal Government. So, TAAN is in the process of
developing a well-managed and efficient system with nominal service
charge of Nepali rupees 250 (equivalent US$ 3.5 only) to implement TRC
in the open trekking areas of Nepal. TRC is going to be issued from
convenient locations of Kathmandu and Pokhara.
TRC Issuing System
The following considerations
have been taken into account in the process of issuing TRC:
1. All important details of
trekkers and trekking routes will be maintained on a computerized
record system that may be useful for safety and security of trekkers
2. The data generated from the
system will be useful to all stakeholders -- tourism organizations,
government agencies, diplomatic missions, tour operators, research
3. Unauthorized trekking
operations will be controlled, thus, resulting into better management
of trekking service and in benefit of all concerned - trekkers,
agencies, field - staff, government, etc. and also occasional untoward
incidents will be better prevented.
4. TAAN will be able to work
more in its effort of preservation of natural and cultural environment
in cooperation with local communities. This, in turn, will enable to
promote sustainable tourism.
5. The issue of TRC will be so
simplified that it would be prompt and inexpensive. The convenient TRC
counter in Kathmandu will remain open 12 hours a day all the seven days
a week round the year. Pokhara counter will be opened for 9 hours a
day. The TRC counters will be located close to the counters of the
National Parks and Conservation Areas.
6. TAAN’s Media
Centre will have updated information about the conditions of trails and
other relevant insights into the trekking areas. The same information
also will be updated frequently in the TAAN's web page. Some of the
check posts along the trekking routes will be equipped with telephone
services by TAAN.
TRC Regulatory Provisions
1. Trekkers must keep Trekking
Registration Certificate (TRC) along with them while trekking.
2. TRC must be shown to TAAN
authorities, National Park check posts, Conservation Area
Project’s check posts and police check posts on demand.
3. Deviation from the
prescribed trekking areas shall be taken as a violation of law of the
Government of Nepal
4. Trekkers must keep their
copies of passports along with them during trekking for verification.
5. TRC shall be
non-transferable, non-refundable and non-endorsable and valid only for
TAAN also requests all
concerned stakeholders to help disseminate the above information to
potential trekkers to Nepal and other related offices and agencies. Any
inconvenience that may arise due to implementation of this new rule is
