This survey dates from when something called a Trekking Registration Certificate was required to trek in Nepal. It made solo trekking impossible.

The requirement was suspended due to administrative problems in the 2007 spring trekking season, and was replaced by TIMS, which doesn't (presently) require a guide/porter and is free. However, the reappearance of a "compulsory guide/porter" stipulation on trekking permits in Nepal is always on the horizon.
