Travel Insurance

“Feel Confidence, Take the Journey” When planning a trip to Nepal, including any type of activity, it is highly recommended to have travel insurance before traveling to Nepal. However, Nepal High Trek has been informing our client before heading to Nepal. We recommend that your insurance is worth a minimum of USD 100,000. Travel insurance provides coverage for unforeseen events, such as trip cancellations, medical emergencies, evacuation, loss or theft of belongings, and other travel-related risks. Here are some essential points to consider when purchasing travel insurance for your Nepal trip.

  1. Medical Coverage: Ensure that your travel insurance provides comprehensive medical coverage, including emergency medical expenses, hospitalization, and emergency medical evacuation if needed. Medical treatment in remote areas or at high altitudes can be expensive, so having adequate coverage is crucial.
  2. Emergency Evacuation: Look for insurance that covers emergency evacuation by helicopter or other means in case of a medical emergency or severe altitude sickness. The Upper Mustang region is remote, and access to medical facilities may be limited, so emergency evacuation coverage is essential.
  3. Adventure Activities Coverage: Confirm that your insurance policy covers trekking activities and any other adventure activities you plan to engage in during your Nepal trip. Some insurance policies may have specific exclusions for certain activities or altitudes, so make sure you read the policy details carefully.
  4. Trip Cancellation and Interruption: Choose a policy that covers trip cancellation or interruption due to unforeseen circumstances, such as illness, injury, or natural disasters. This will protect your investment in case you need to cancel or cut short your trip.
  5. Lost or Stolen Belongings: Ensure that your travel insurance covers the loss or theft of your belongings, including luggage, personal items, and equipment. This coverage can be valuable, especially when traveling in unfamiliar environments.
  6. Policy Limits and Exclusions: Read the policy terms and conditions thoroughly, including any coverage limits, deductibles, and exclusions. Pay attention to any pre-existing conditions exclusions and understand the claim process and documentation requirements.
  7. Duration of Coverage: Make sure your travel insurance covers the entire duration of your trip, including any pre- and post-trekking activities. It is advisable to have insurance coverage for a few days before and after the trek to account for any unforeseen circumstances or delays.
  8. Compare Multiple Policies: Shop around and compare different insurance policies to find the one that best suits your needs. Consider factors such as coverage, price, reputation of the insurance company, and customer reviews.
  9. Declare Pre-Existing Medical Conditions: If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, make sure to declare them when purchasing travel insurance. Failure to disclose pre-existing conditions may lead to denial of coverage when making a claim.

Remember to keep a copy of your travel insurance policy and emergency contact numbers with you during your trip. It is also advisable to inform your travel companions or family members about your insurance coverage and how to contact the insurance provider in case of an emergency.
