The abundance of beauty of the Himalayas can come with great risks. There are health issues such as altitude sickness and injuries that may happen during your trek. Therefore, it is best to prepare for any unforeseen risks that may occur while travelling through the high mountain regions. It is always better to be safe than sorry.
Considering that the cost of any type of emergency abroad can deplete your entire holiday budget, it is important to have travel insurance after booking your trip to Nepal. Travel insurance lets you travel with peace of mind so we highly recommend securing one.
It is best to choose an insurance plan that covers all aspects of your travel from flight to trek, such as flight delays, loss of baggage, relief for acute mountain sickness, emergency evacuation by a helicopter in case of major accidents and medical bills among others.
There is a wide variety of insurance companies you can choose from. But you need to be very selective while choosing the service. Be mindful not only of what the insurance covers, but also what it does not.
