Nepal Tourism Board - opening hours during public holidays?
Save

Hey there,

I will be in Kathmandu on the 18th and 19th of October (next week), I've just realised this is during the Dashain festival. I am just hoping someone can confirm whether the Nepal Tourism Board will be open or not? If it is closed, can someone suggest alternative ways to obtain my ACAP & TIMS permit? My plan is to head to Besisahar straight after Kathmandu and not to pass through Pokhara.

Thanks :)

Hi

Normally the permit and TIMS counters operate in a fashion during the holidays. Just be prepared to spend a little extra time as they might be understaffed.

Hi

I'm not sure of the closures but I would head to the office early. The permits can also be bought on the trail either at Besisahar or Bhulbhule.
