TIMS Counter Pokhara
Trekkers' Information Management System (TIMS)
|The Government of Nepal has
made some changes in existing Trekkers’ Management Information System
(TIMS) provisions from April 1, 2010. As per the government decision,
Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) and Trekking Agencies’ Association of Nepal
(TAAN) will jointly implement the TIMS. NTB and TAAN signed a Memorandum
of Understanding (MoU) on March 18, 2010 to implement the TIMS system
under a new format from April 1, 2010. As per the MoU, they have
introduced separate TIMS Cards for FITs and organized groups. FITs need
to have Green TIMS cards by paying Nepali currency equivalent to US $20
per person, while those travelling in groups need to have Blue TIMS
cards by paying Nepali currency equivalent to US $10 per person.
Trekkers taking the service of trekking agencies can pay fee for TIMS
card in US dollar.
Free Individual Trekkers:
TIMS Card is compulsory to trek in all
the trekking areas in the country. However, TIMS cards aren’t required
The following considerations have been
taken into account in the process of issuing TIMS:
Unauthorized trekking operations will be controlled, thus, resulting in better management of trekking services, which will not only benefit trekkers and field staff, but also trekking companies and Government agencies. Occasional untoward incidents will also be better prevented. Plus, TIMS will upgrade the service standard and will contribute to better management of sustainable mountain tourism development in Nepal. Source : TAAN
