Precaution is always better than cure.
Travel Insurance is mandatory for all customers looking to travel in Nepal with the Nepal Hiking Team. The Travel Insurance must cover both the medical and emergency evacuation cost. We recommend that your insurance is worth a minimum of USD 100,000.
The beauty of the Himalayas comes with great risks. It is always best to prepare for any unforeseen risks that may occur while traveling. There are many insurance companies that offer travel insurance services over the internet. You can choose from a wide variety of insurance companies as per your convenience. Especially when it comes to trekking in Nepal, there is always a narrow chance of minor health issues, injuries and most importantly – altitude sickness.
It is crucial that you choose an insurance policy that covers the cost of the helicopter rescue from the mountains in case of major accidents and acute mountain sickness (AMS). During such extreme cases of an emergency evacuation, a helicopter service is the only way out of the mountains. This includes a rescue team for both – ground evacuation and rescue. Which is why we require your travel insurances to cover the cost of helicopter services and evacuation from the Himalayas.
It is always better to be safe than sorry.
Before you plan your trip with us, do make sure that your travel insurance covers all the costs mentioned above from a reliable company.
