Trekking Agents Association of Nepal (TAAN) was formed in 1977 in Kathmandu

Trekking Agents Association of Nepal (TAAN) was formed and registered with the Kathmandu CDO Office in 1979 by a handful of trekking agents who realized that it was time to assemble and create an umbrella organization. Under which they could work together to meet their common goals and also assist the government by providing suggestions to make trekking business revenue generating industry. The same while, also provide with employment opportunity. Such a body was necessary for many reasons. There was a need for a single organization, which could undertake the major responsibilities to develop and promote adventure tourism in the country. It was also essential to play a significant, conducive role to mitigate mountain environmental stress.

Since its establishment, the number of trekking agencies has been increasing as well as the number of members of the association. TAAN limited its membership only to Nepalese trekking agents at its initial phase. Nevertheless, it opened its associate membership to foreign organizations to broaden the scope of the Association.

TAAN members (250 general members and 8 associate members) meet annually 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 with trekking. TAAN has four Sub-Committees, which assist to meet its objectives. It also organizes workshops to make trekking agents aware of the rising pollution in trekking routes and other problems encountered by the trekkers and trekking agents. The executive body, which is elected every two years, has 6 office bearers, 8 Executive Members, 1 immediate Past President, 1 Chapter Representative and 1 or 3 Nominate Executive Member/s.

President of the association is the Chief Spokesperson of the association and represents it at the boards of - (1) Nepal Mountaineering Association, (2) Himalayan Rescue Association (3) Nepal Academy of Tourism and Hotel Management (NATHM).
