The remote areas of Nepal have a lot to offer in the way of attractions and scenery to the valuable visitors.

To enter most of these areas you need special permits as they are protected areas for wildlife, the indigenous culture and fragile environment. The Himalayan scenery in these parts of Nepal is impressive.

Permits are beginning to be relaxed and in the future hopefully permit fees will be reduced. How ever the conservation of these areas, not just for trekkers but more importantly for the people and animals that inhabit them comes first and fore most, the trekker should bear that in mind when considering the costs involved to trek in these areas.
