Are you planning for Everest Base Camp trek or are you looking for the Everest Base Camp Trek Permits you need for your trek? We’re going to talk about the Everest Base Camp Trek Permits in this article.
With decentralization, a new trekking permit system has been placed in place in the Everest area. Trekker’s Information Management System (TIMS) is not necessary for the Everest Region Trek. With much debate and controversy on the new licensing system, the system has been introduced in the Khumbu region. So that we have prepared an article that will help to clarify properly about the permits that are necessary for the Everest trek. Here are some of the necessary permits:
- Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entry Permit
- Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit
Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entry Permit
This permit is newly issued by the local government of the Khumbu region as of 1 October 2018 after the withdrawal of the TIMS. The local government of Khumbu collects $20 per person for the cost of the permit. This money is being used for the protection and creation of the Khumbu region. Also, be aware that this license is not accessible in the Kathmandu Valley or Pokhara Valley. To receive this permit, you need to fly to Lukla and apply for a permit. If you are heading from Jiri or Salleri, you can make permit from Monjo.
Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit
Sagarmatha National Park is home to a number of endangered species and birds. There is an existing permit scheme for accessing the Sagarmatha National Park.

This permit is available in Kathmandu at the Nepal Tourism Board or at the Monjo Park Entrance Gate. This permit is costing $per user.
