Trekking TIMS Card
Nepal, a Trekker's Paradise, offers some of the most spectacular trekking routes in the world. Passing through the diverse culture and nature, trekking in Nepal is a life-time experience which involves a certain degree of physical strength due to the rugged topography. With the distinction of Nepal as a trekking destination and its growing charm, a provision of Trekkers' Information Management System (TIMS) has been implemented to control illegal trekking operations and ensure safety and security of the trekkers in general trekking areas through the mechanism of Prompt Information Service when required. Past experiences have shown that difficulties have been faced while carrying out rescue operations promptly during times of accidents and natural calamities. Because of a lack of proper record system of trekkers, their exact whereabouts and the information about trekking routes, rescue and search missions used to face difficulties in spotting trekkers who were missing. The provision of Trekkers' Information Management System (TIMS) has been effective from Jan. 1, 2008. Trekking Agencies Association of Nepal (TAAN) and Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) have started recording trekkers’ details and issuing TIMS Card to trekkers. The visiting tourists, who are interested to general trekking areas of Nepal, are required to receive TIMS Card. To obtain TIMS Card you need copy of Passport and two copies of Passport-size Photographs.
Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) and Trekking Agencies' Association of Nepal (TAAN) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on March 18, 2010 to implement the TIMS system in a new format from April 1, 2010. NTB and TAAN have introduced separate TIMS Cards for FITs and organized groups. FITs need to have Green TIMS cards by paying US $20 per person, while those travelling in groups need to have Blue TIMS cards by paying US $10 per person.
