HimalayanWindows advises bringing proper Travel Insurance to all travelers interested in trekking in the Himalayas. Travel Insurance is a policy that helps cover medical problems, emergency evacuation, theft, loss of belongings, last-hour tour/ticket cancellation, death, etc. The Insurance Policy can protect you from losses during your adventure tour and trekking into the Himalayas. It is highly recommended that you bring proper travel insurance coverage for that area and activities.
Trekking in Nepal is walking on the path of mountains, and in mountain areas, the health treatment services are not standard and easily accessible. There are few available good hospitals and doctors in the mountainous regions. Therefore, if the trekkers suffer from severe sickness, they should be brought to the close city or Kathmandu ASAP. The best option could be a Chopper rescue arrangement for better treatment because Nepal does not have quality paved roads to drive to the hospitals. The Chopper rescue or helicopter charter is expensive. If you already have a travel insurance policy, that would be super helpful & your money will be saved.
We recommend purchasing an insurance policy for every trip, we offer that should cover emergency evacuation and treatment. However, we strongly recommend you bring an insurance policy for some famous trekking in Nepal, like Everest Base Camp Trek, Annapurna Base Camp Trek, Annapurna Circuit Trek, Manaslu Trek, etc. These are the high altitude trekking destinations, and there is an increased risk of high-altitude sickness.
As mentioned above, Travel Insurance is used for unforeseen situations and protects from significant losses due to certain obstacles. Mainly, it helps protect you from the failures of Bhutan’s hefty cancellation fees and prepayment situations. Things happened to be the same while touring countries like Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet. Please remember to bring an Insurance policy from your own country or other international insurance companies. Nepal, Tibet & Bhutan mostly deal with domestic travelers, not foreigners. For further information, please consult with us about the insurance policies on a particular destination while booking the trip.
When you select a travel insurance policy, it is required that you are minimum covered for medical treatment, including emergency evacuation. Moreover, we strongly recommend that the insurance policy covers your liability, loss of luggage, and trip cancellation.
HimalayanWindows shall have no liability for any loss, damage of baggage, theft, and personal effects. We would also like to inform you that the Nepal Insurance Company does not have a travel insurance policy for foreign citizens to date. So, we advise you to do your travel insurance with your insurance company in your country and send a copy of the insurance policy to your concerned travel agency before your adventure trip begins.
