Traveling in the Himalayas or generally traveling abroad can involve many unforeseen circumstances. You will be in a completely new place, with the bare minimum to no in-depth knowledge about the place, and in this case, having travel insurance can be a reliable option. As the saying goes, "It is better to be safe than sorry."
Nepal is known as an adventurous destination because of its numerous trekking trails, climbing peaks, and 8,000 meters plus Expedition Mountains. Moreover, many adrenaline activities like paragliding, mountain biking, white-water rafting, bungee jumping, canyoning, etc are also possible in Nepal, which makes Nepal one of the go-to destinations for adventure lovers around the world. However, with great adventure comes great risk. Therefore, we request our guests to have well-covered travel insurance to join any of our trips.
Depending upon the package, you might trek above 5,000 meters above the sea level, and that can trigger altitude sickness (aka acute mountain sickness) as well as other illnesses. Even with all the preparations and precautions, no one can guarantee such events. No matter where you are going and what you are doing, having travel insurance will be a peace of mind for you.
Choosing the right travel insurance is very important. Your travel insurance must cover the cost of medical bills, air evacuation in major accidents, and acute mountain sickness. We also advise you to include loss or theft of personal property, flight tickets, etc in your travel insurance. There are numerous insurance companies around the world who have been providing a range of insurance coverage for
different activities. Nepal does not allow travelers to get travel insurance here, therefore you are requested to get one in your home country, and carry the documents with yourself.
