Nepal Trekking permit fees All trekkers require a trekking permit fee to visit Nepal’s interior regions, which are not connected by highways. Recently the Annapurna, Langtang, and Everest regions have been declared “permit free” areas; but National Park or Conservation Area fees are required… We process the trekking permits and national park entrances at immigration offices in Kathmandu and Pokhara. Two photographs and a copy of passport are required with the application.
