Sending a notification to Trekking Agenciesí Association of Nepal (TAAN), Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation (MoCTCA) said it decided to extend royalty waiver after witnessing significant rise in trekking and mountaineering activities in mid and far western region over the past five years.
