06. What Type Of Insurance Should I Get?

It is essential for foreign travelers to secure insurance coverage while trekking in Nepal. Trekking in Nepal, though generally safe, can pose physical challenges and potential hazards, especially at high altitudes. Altitude sickness is prevalent among trekkers, particularly foreign travelers who may not have acclimatized properly. Physical injuries can also occur on mountain trails. In emergency situations, foreign trekkers may need to be rescued by helicopter and transported to hospitals in Kathmandu, which can be costly if the traveler is not covered by insurance. It is advisable for travelers who trek with us to purchase a travel insurance package that covers potential medical issues, natural disasters, personal accidents, emergency helicopter evacuation, hospitalization, and loss or damage of personal belongings and trip cancellations.
