Covid-19: new guidelines for trekking, mountaineering in Nepal

Sep 30, 2020 12:38 IST

To minimise the Covid risk, the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation in Nepal has issued a set of new guidelines for International tourists visiting the country for trekking and mountaineering activities.

According to a report in The Himalayan Times, an entry-permit or entry-visa is a must in the absence of a visa-provision from their respective countries along with a PCR test report not older than 72 hours that suggests the traveler is Covid-19 negative.

In addition, travellers must have booking documents that show the hotel they will be residing in, insurance papers that prove that they have an insurance of $5,000. All travellers will need to spend seven days at least in quarantine.

When in quarantine, travellers will be required to undergo a PCR test on the 5th day, at their own expense. If the test is positive, the quarantine will be extended.
