TIMS for independent trek in Langtang


I plan on doing the Tamang Heritage trail and Langtang valley treks without a porter or guide.

I was told by a travel agent in Thamel that I don't need to obtain a TIMS card in advance and that it will be issued for me, along with a permit, at the checkpoint in Dunche.

Is this true? I don't want to go through the drive to Dunche just to be sent back to Kathmandu...

I am also going Langtang at Mid April 2014.

You can arrange ACAP permit at the Kathmandu & also check point of Dunche.

But I can't found any way to arranging the TIMS card at Dunche.

So this is better for you arrange your TIMS card at Kathmandu.

My One day corrupt for thisTIMS permit, but it is necessary.
