Filming In Nepal

Nepal’s historical monuments, ancient temples and incredibly beautiful landscapes make this country an exciting location for filming. Hollywood productions like "Little Buddha" and "Golden Child" were shot in Nepal. The Oscar nominated “Caravan” was shot entirely in Nepal; mostly in the remote Dolpo region in the Himalayas. Besides these, countless Hindi block- busters and music videos by such bands as Enigma have been shot here.

For filming in Nepal a fee of US $ 1000/- to US $ 1500/- in case of a feature film and US$ 100/- to US$ 500/- in case of other documentary films must be paid to the Government. The filming must be carried out under the supervision of a liaison officer appointed by the government. A sum of Rs.1500/- must also be paid to the Royal Nepal Film Corporation in case of a feature film and Rs. 800/- for other types of filming. The filming company is required to take out an insurance policy in favour of the liaison officer. Filming is also possible within the national parks and conservation areas.

Like the "Honey Hunters of Nepal" expertly filmed by Eric Valli, there is much that remains to be filmed and recorded for posterity. Films on the wild elephants of Bardia in western Nepal are shot every year by a team of foreign filmmakers. Bob Hoskins is one of the key figures in making films on elephants. There are many films on mountaineering of which the Imax production of “Everest” was a huge success globally. There are other films on rafting, kayaking, biking and a host of other adventure sports in Nepal. The possibilities are endless.

Transportation is relatively easy owing to the short distances within the country. Remote areas can be reached by charter flight and where there are no proper airstrips, a helicopter can be chartered for air lifting equipment and crew. If you wish to do any filming in Nepal, we will make the necessary arrangements and get the required permits in your favour.
