Royalty For Mountain Expedition

Royalty and Size of Expedition Team

Realizing mountaineering as the back-bone of Nepal’s tourism industry, the Government of Nepal has made following decisions in a bid to make mountaineering royalty fee competitive amongst the neighboring countries, promote mountains lying in remote and less privileged areas, and create environment to transform the seasonal mountaineering business operational round the year and materialize the concept of ‘Nepal for all Seasons'.

 

  1. Provide discount of 50% in winter and Summer Season and 75% in Autumn Season keeping intact the Royalty Fee in Spring Season.
  2. Increase the number of climbing member in an expedition from 12 to 15.
  3. Provide 100% discount on Royalty Fee for mountains located in mid and Far Western Development Regions for 5 years.
  4. Implement Incremental Royalty Break-down System (IRDS), a system under which permit fee increases with the increase in number of climbing members, on all mountains instead of lump sum per expedition having climbing members seven or less than that.
