Trekking Permit Nepal Restricted Regions

some region for trekking in nepal are especially categorized as restricted area trekking or also named as controlled tourism. There are several such restricted trekking in Nepal however most famous one are Upper Mustang Trek, Upper Dolpo Trek, Manaslu Circuit Trek, Kanchenjunga Trek, Makalu Trek. These areas were totally closed to foreigner even at the time when Everest Trek and Annapurna as well as Langtang Area are on limelight. It might be interesting to know why these areas are declared as restricted, lets discuss about this trekking trail in Nepal. The first thing is necessary infrastructure needed for tourism do not used to exist like people were unaware about white face people, no idea of English Language, (Still most of old people do not speak good enough Nepali), no hotel or lodges, communication and other. Still in Kanchenjunga region teahouse are very basic with small stone huts in end part, however Upper Mustang, Manaslu are quite good because of flow of local people there which is almost absence on Kanchenjunga, Makalu Area. But after 1993 after little sign of development some of these area are open for foreigner but on controlled mechanism.

Apart from that reason of lack of infrastructure, another key point is direct access to Tibet from those areas. As China is very strict on any activities again Tibet, like free Tibet and do not Nepal to let them other used Nepali Land for demonstration against Tibet and China, which is another strong reason why these area are restricted for trekking. Talking about Kanchenjunga there are several passes on Olangchungola toward Tibet and northern base camp area are still very basic in term of accommodation and foods so this area is still under tag of restricted region to trek.
 
Makalu Base Camp area is itself not restricted but if one is trekking toward Barun Valley and head to Kimathangka then it is another important border on Tibetan side, although area is bit developed with lower terrain and large villages.

 Manaslu Trekking Permit 


Talking about Manaslu Circuit, although the entire trek trail lies with in boundary of Nepal, Tibet is directly accessible from Samdo and Mu-Monastery of Tsum Valley with a day walk these both Manaslu and Tsum Valley area are considered as restricted region to trek. Not only these region last end of Tsum in Mu, Gumba Lundang one need to settle in monasteries where even monk do not speak good Nepali Language to communicate with Nepal Guide, however communication facilities is ok till Nile and Chule on end phase of Tsum Valley Trek.
 
Upper Mustang, The Last forbidden kingdom or sometimes also known as The Little Tibet is one of the most powerful restricted area because it is more easily connected to Tibet as it used to serve as Trans Himalayan Salt Trade Route with Tibet, cause people from Mustang, Manang they used to trail to connect with Tibet before for trading salts or whatever other basic stuffs. Apart from that upper mustang has excellent history as well as culture so it most be preserved for future which is main reason why there is strict controlled tourism in Upper Mustang with limited number of visitor per year.
 
Upper Dolpa, which is almost inaccessible for foreigner and local Nepali People, cause most of village in Dolpo and beyond high passes and surrounded by Himalayas on entire side. It comes in limelight from the time when famous movie named Caravan win Oscar award, which is mainly basis of caravan of yak heading toward Tibet for trading. Still people from Upper Dolpa directly depends upon Tibet for entire stuffs as they go toward Tibetan Side frequently on a large group and bring necessary stuffs laden over yak. Because the area is on remote part untouched by motor road, only way to get connected with major cities of Nepal is Jhupal Airport, where flight rates are expensive as well as uncertain because of bad weather.
