Trekking and visiting the Himalayas consist of many unforeseen risks. It is generous to be ready for any risk, which may arise during your travel to Nepal. Numerous travel insurance companies provide great returns in case of calamities. There is always a danger of minor health problems, injuries, and most crucially - altitude sickness, etc., when it comes to trekking in the Nepalese Himalayas.

It is essential to choose a plan that covers the helicopter rescue from the Himalayas in case of fatal calamities and acute altitude sickness. The only way out of the mountains in such dire situations as an emergency evacuation is by helicopter service. This consists of a rescue squad for both ground rescue and evacuation. Because of this, we need your trip insurance to pay for the cost of helicopter assistance and Himalayan evacuation (up to 6000m).

Travel Insurance for Trekking 

Traveling and hiking might expose you to serious and minor incidents that can keep you in the hospital and increase your healthcare expenditures. Therefore, you should purchase trip insurance that includes high altitude illness, clinical help, and helicopter evacuation services. Since there is always a remote probability when climbing to the top of big hills, it will be your advantage if something goes wrong with you.

Travel Insurance for Peak Climbing 

Peak climbing is a difficult and dangerous adventure you can undertake in Nepal. You must have travel insurance that can cover the top evacuation system in Nepal, helicopter rescue, and medical expenses if you have any plans to visit Nepal and experience peak climbing. You should be completely prepared for anything because you could end up spending a huge amount on medical costs in risky situations.

Travel Insurance for other Outdoor Activities

Other outdoor activities like sightseeing, day hikes at lower altitudes, forest safaris, birdwatching, etc. do not create a risk to human life, so purchasing travel insurance is not required. The risks of injury from these activities are low, and the cost of treatment is also low.
