    Expedition and Climbing Permit Fees

    [TOC]

    Climbing and expedition come around with a royalty fee that has to be paid to the Government of Nepal. These royalty fees are used for mountain communities and the overall development of climbing and expedition in Nepal is to make expeditions safe and secure without having no casualties as possible. The royalty fee comes around different for expeditions of different elevations, the higher peaks have higher fees and vice versa. These permit fees are used to govern you during your expedition, to take into account your safety if any kind of incident occurs in the Himalayas as they are unpredictable as always. This keeps track of you when you are in the Himalayas and it will be far easier to trace out people if they are in need of rescue, you can find plenty of rescue operations becoming successful due to the monitoring of climbers through these permits.

    The permit fees are different according to the seasons of the expedition where spring has the most following autumn and winter respectively, it's because during the peak season of spring there are lots of mountaineers climbing different peaks and require more monovers and monitoring that leads to higher royalty fees. During the autumn and winter, the climber's numbers decrease so as the fees if you want to save up your big bucks autumn and winter would be preferable times for the expedition, however, keep in mind it comes with more hard work and dedication.
