TRAVEL & RESCUE INSURANCE
We strongly recommend you to make an up to date travel insurance policy that covers cancellation, injury, death, lost baggage, theft, liability, medical treatment, and expenses while traveling and Trekking in Nepal Himalaya. The insurance covers all the activities (traveling, trekking, climbing) that you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal. But, If a client becomes ill, all hospital expenses, doctor fees, and repatriation costs will be the client’s responsibility.
Travel & Rescue Insurance is the most important part of insurance while on adventure trip in Nepal. Please be sure that your insurance policy must cover all your rescue expenses probably by Helicopter. If you are injured and unable to travel, you can ask for a rescue helicopter or charter flight. The cost depends on the location.
You must carry insurance copy along with you during your stay in Nepal and be sure when you are on trekking, or climbing/ expedition in the Himalayas your insurance policy covers explicitly emergency air ambulance or helicopter rescue services.
While on trekking, there are few medical posts in the trailhead, the Himalayan Rescue Association operates aid post in Pheriche (Everest Trekking), and Manang ( Annapurna Circuit trekking), the Khunde Hospital on Everest trekking are all staffed by Western doctors. However, most accidents or illnesses will occur in the absence of regular medical care. If you find yourself ill or injured in the mountains, AlpineTrav Treks and Expeditions will arrange a rescue for you. If small injuries and health problem and altitude sickness are suspected, our staff will descend you immediately. For the more serious medical issues, emergency helicopter rescues will be arranged by AlpineTrav Treks and Expeditions.

While you are trekking with AlpineTrav Treks and Expeditions, we will arrange the rescue and initial payments and will claim for the refund to your insurance company again.
