langtang trek infoHi guys,
We are planning for Langtang trek in October this year. Recently heard about the TIMS card is necessary for each trekkers there. But it is hard for us to procure it from kathmandu as we have not much time to spend an extra day at kathmandu. So my query is, can TIMS cards be procured en route from Dhunche or Siabrubensi?

1Park cards can generally be bought at checkpoints/entrance points, sometimes for double price....TIMS cards generally can not be bought at checkpoints however this is Nepal and it may???? be possible to 'arrange' this on the spot though I would not count on it.....hopefully others will have more definitive info....I would do whatever is necessary to get my TIMS in KTM...

I can't be definitive but I have not read about anybody obtaining the TIMS card at the checkpoints in Dhunche (the park entrance) or Syabrubesi in the park. There was a report on here about somebody who was unable to obtain it at Kuthumsang which is a checkpoint for Langtang national park from the south in Helambu.
Getting TIMS in KTM might not take too long depending on any queues. A possible solution is to pay a trekking agent to obtain it in advance - I understand this is still possible.
