Solo Trekking to be banned in Nepal

Trekking in NepalOur sources in Nepal report that the days of trekking on your own and without a guide will soon be over! From this autumn all trekkers planning to undertake a route within the Nepal Himalaya will need to be accompanied by at least one porter or guide. Safety has been cited by the Nepalese Government as the main reason for introducing this new policy, as there have been isolated cases of trekkers disappearing within the last few years. Under the terms of the new policy 'Free Individual Trekkers' will also have to pay an additional fee of US $10 per day. Whilst this is a nominal amount to contribute towards your safety and the local economy, it is sadly another rule that will affect our right to roam freely in the mountains. Of course, it won't affect KE holidays, as our groups naturally employ a full complement of Sherpas, cooks, porters and other helpers. Autumn is prime trekking season in Nepal and over the next few months we have a huge choice of trekking holidays , with more than 100 departures guaranteed.
