Trekking Agencies’ Association of Nepal (TAAN) is an umbrella organization of Trekking Agencies which was formed and registered with the Kathmandu CDO office in 1979. TAAN works with a common goal to assist the government by providing them suggestions to develop trekking business.
It is a fact that the tourism is a revenue generating sector. Before the establishment of TAAN, the scenario of trekking field had not been in a developed form. The development and promotion of adventure tourism used to be done by a single Travel agency. So with a view to undertake the major responsibilities to develop and promote adventure tourism in the country and to play a significant and conducive role to mitigate environmental stress, TAAN came into existence.
In its initial phase, TAAN memberships were limited only to Nepali Trekking Agents, but now associate membership is provided to foreign organization also in order to broaden the scope of the association.
