Expedition Royalty

Government of Nepal has recently restructured climbing Royalties in order to stimulate climbing tourism with the objective to make climbing/mountaineering royalty competitive with neighbouring counties, to promote mountain climbing in remote locations and to encourage

mountaineering/climbing all year round. This enacted the following changes in permit fee structure:
Permit fee was discounted to 50% for autumn expeditions and to 25% for winter and summer expeditions;

Maximum number of expedition members allowed per expedition was increased from 12 to 15;
Climbing royalty was waved for the period of 5 years for peaks located in mid and far western regions; see Royalty Free Mountains [royalty_free_mountain_in_nepal.php]
Incremental royalty system was implemented, whereby royalty fee is proportional to number of expedition members replacing previous flat fee per expedition.

Other Rules:

Route plan change fee on Everest is U$10,000 unless the change is to South West Ridge route, which attracts U$20,000 fee.
For peaks other than Mt. Everest, the team will have to pay an additional 25% of the royalty in US$ to change the ascent route.
Peaks below 6500m do not require Liaison Officer anymore.
