What is TIMS Card?
With the feature of Nepal as a trekking destination and its growing attraction, a condition of the Trekkers’ Information Management System (TIMS Card) has been implemented to make sure safety and security of the trekker and discouraging illegal operation in trekking business. The condition of trekkers’ information management system (TIMS) come into effect on January 1st 2008. Since then, the trekking agencies association of Nepal (TAAN) and Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) started recording trekkers’ details and began issuing TIMS Card to trekkers.

All foreign trekkers going on trekking in any areas of the country are compulsory to obtain a TIMS Card, slip/certificate. Unlike Trekking Registration Certificate (TRC), the TIMS slips will be made available to trekkers in 20$. Trekking companies, who are members of TAAN, will be used as TIMS counters. The TAAN central office in Kathmandu and its regional section office in Pokhara will also issue TIMS slips. If it is necessary, NTB will open its counter to issue the slips for Individual Tourists. There are two types of TIMS Certificates: blue certificate for the organized trekkers and green certificates for Free Individual Trekkers (FIT). Trekkers Can get a TIMS Card from Our Trekking Company in Thamel.
