Some remote areas in Nepal particularly those of trans-Himalayan are strictly controlled by the government of Nepal for the entry by foreigners for trekking. The people of those places have so far preserved their own life and culture which is very similar to the culture of Tibet and to prevent this special culture, foreigners are restricted and the security of the border area is another major concern of not allowing the foreigners to visit these areas unless they pay for a special permit for trekking and the trip is organized only through a government registered trekking company. The trans-Himalayan areas are still remained unspoiled or unexplored and full of wilderness. The lives of the local inhabitants have rarely changed despite there has been much changed in the outside world with the development of science and technology.

To get permits to trek into restricted area requires at least two trekking members along with government certified trekking guide and necessary porters. Restricted Area trekking trails usually fall at the border of Nepal and Tibet. Upper Mustang, Manaslu and Dolpo region are the restricted area for trekking in the west part of Nepal.
