Trekking Agencies' Association of Nepal (TAAN) PDF Print E-mail

Trekking Agencies' Association of Nepal (TAAN) is an umbrella organisation of trekking agencies and adventure tour operators in the country. TAAN was established in the year 1979 by a handful of trekking agencies, who felt the need of a forum where they could discuss the problems and issues in their business and moreover to recognise the trekking business as an industry. They also felt such a body was also needed to provide meaningful inputs to the government to formulate rules and regulations for the benefit of all. They also felt the need of a body which could undertake the major responsibilities to develop and promote adventure tourism in the country. This led to the formation of TAAN.


Ever since its inception, the member agencies have been increasing and from a handful of trekking agencies in the initial stage, it now has nearly 600 members. Though in the initial stage, TAAN confined its members to the domestic agencies only, it has opened up its membership to foreign organisations as well. It has 14 associated members now.

 

TAAN member agents meet every year to endorse policy guidelines, which govern the executive body. It frequently communicates with the concerned bodies of the government to simplify the procedures and solve the problems related to trekking business.


The executive body has 19 members, among which 14 are elected by general members, two are ex-officio members while three are nominated by the executive committee.

 

TAAN also has a chapter in Pokhara, where around 50 trekking and adventure operators, are affiliated.
