Travel Insurance

Travel Insurance is mandatory to have in order to do any adventure trips with Nepal Hiking Team. The Travel Insurance must cover both the medical and emergency evacuation cost. The insurance should be worth a minimum of USD 100,000.00.

While travelling, it is always best to be prepared for any risks or unforeseen circumstances that may occur. There might be some difficulties that might occur, especially while travelling in the Himalayas. The risk and chances of problems like health issues, injuries and even altitude sickness occurring is always a plausibility that might happen. Therefore, you have to be prepared beforehand, especially if your travels include the mountains and the Himalayas. 

A helicopter service may also be needed sometimes according to the circumstance. Along with the helicopter service, a rescue team can also sometimes become necessary for ground evacuation and rescuing. That is why, all travelers must have insurance that cover helicopter services and evacuation in the mountains as well. It is the best way to start any trip if you are going to a mountainous landscape. For your safety, being covered by a good Insurance plan that covers all accidents, injuries, health issues and rescue and emergency evacuation via a helicopter in the Himalayas will make your trip worry-free.  

There are many insurance companies that provide travel insurance services over the internet. You can choose from a wide variety of insurance companies according to your convenience. But it is extremely important to be aware of the fact that the insurance policy the company of your choice provides to you should cover the cost of the helicopter rescue from the mountains in case of any accidents or Altitude Sickness during your trip.   

However, travel insurance is not mandatory for those traveler(s) who intend to do cultural/city tours. Travel Insurance is not mandatory either for traveler(s) who intend to do short hikes below 2,500 meters of altitude. But, if the circumstance of any problems during the cultural tour/city tour or the short hike occurs, then all of the risks will have to be bared by the traveler(s) themselves. Nepal Hiking Team will not be responsible for any accidents or problems for customers who are doing cultural tour/city tour or short hike.   

It is always better to be safe first than to be sorry later. Please make sure that you have a good travel insurance that covers the all of the problems mentioned above if you plan on doing any adventure trips with us.
