Trekking in the Restricted Region has its different charm. Restricted Region trails are less crowded and usually in the most rural part of the country with untouched nature and ancient cultures.
Nepal has allocated a few parts as restricted regions. This is to prevent the overflow of international tourists. These regions are susceptible due to various reasons, including the climate and ethnic values, and hence Restricted Regions are carefully monitored by government officials.
Apart from the general trekking and Conservation Area or National Park fees, if you are travelling to a Restricted region, you will also have to pay additional Permit fees, varying from place to place. Further, single travellers are not allowed to trek in this region. There need to be at least two travellers travelling in the Restricted Region apart from your guide and crew members.
The permits are issued by government-registered Trekking Companies in Nepal. While the trekking permits can be issued before you arrive in Nepal, issuing the Restricted Region permits requires a hard passport copy of the traveller. So make sure you plan to stay for additional days in Kathmandu.
