ARTICLE BY NEPAL FILM PRODUCTION TEAM

Generally, Filming in Nepal can create multiple issues if the production company you have collaborated with, doesn’t have full knowledge about logistics, traveling, and rules and regulations about filming in Nepal. 

1. Film Permits of Nepal

Nepal is a very safe country but requires permits for filming in Nepal like “National Filming Permits”, “Annapurna Conservation Area Permits” and coordination with other relevant ministries is crucial as well depending on the schedule and filming locations for an international production company. 

Nepal is extremely famous for “Mount Everest” and other popular destinations like Annapurna Region, Mustang Region, Kanchenjunga Area, old monasteries, and excellent trekking routes which make it a country to go to for filming purposes. 

2. Security and Safety

There might be many questions that come to a “Foreign Film-Makers” mind if wanting to film in Nepal, concerning a matter of security and safety. But once any person arrives in Nepal they will be shocked by the kind hospitality an average tourist receives and the kindness they face.

3. Altitude Sickness

Filming and traveling to high altitude locations need a lot of precaution,  mostly in terms of safety because there are multiple risks of altitude sickness.

Acclimatization is not considered or even having a medic on your filming crew with experience can go a far way.

While filming in such high altitude, the film-maker should have a rescue plan and back-up oxygen in stock in order to prevent themselves from getting altitude sickness as it can be life-threatening if not treated properly.
