Travel Insurance is mandatory for all our clients looking to travel in Nepal with Himalayan Global Expedition. The Travel Insurance must cover the medical, emergency evacuation, trip cancellation and curtailment, and loss of luggage and personal effect 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 travelling. 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 small 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. This is why we require your travel insurances to cover the cost of helicopter services and evacuation from the Himalayas.
All our clients are advised to avoid possible unpleasant consequences later during the trek. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
Before you plan your trip with us, do make sure that your travel insurance covers all the costs as mentioned from Himalayan Global Expedition. You must also carry proof of insurance with you and produce it if reasonably requested by the company employees. We also request you to leave a copy of your valid travel insurance with us along with one of your family member’s contact details for your safety.
