Do you just turn up with passport photos and you get it the same day? Thanks for your help! Replies Rajesh Nov 23 Hello, yes you need one working day to get all necessary trekking permits. You should have passport size photo and fill the form in Tourism board in Kathmandu/Pokhara. It will cost you 2000 Rupees. If you have further queries please feel free let me know. Thanks dhiran Nov 26 yeah, for sure ! if you have your passport and photo with you, you will get TIMS and permit within 2 hours Jim Dec 10 you can get them at the counter of the tourist service centre in Kathmandu, there is also a TIMS office more conveniently located in Thamel You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
