Traveling in the remote mountains in Nepal is always a risky job. Weather remains unpredictable and there is always a risk of avalanche and natural calamities. Trekking in mountains is also risky because of the high chance of getting suffered from High altitude sickness. The possibility of physical injury cannot be ignored while walking through the difficult route with help of ropes, fixed cables, ladders and axe. Rescue at high altitude is a far expensive task. You will have to bear the cost of expensive emergency treatment and rescue if you have not already made travel insurance with any of the secure travel insurance companies. Major costs that will be covered by travel insurance include helicopter rescue cost and treatment costs.
So, we strongly suggest you to get insured before joining the trekking package. You must read all the terms and conditions of the insurance company before taking travel insurance policy from the given insurance company. Notify them of the trekking itinerary and activities that we are offering at Grandi Travels and Tour Pvt. Ltd. so that complication may not arise in future if in case you need to claim your insurance. Your insurance should cover emergency helicopter rescue and medical expenses if you are taking the climbing and expedition package. If you are intending to join the trekking in urban areas, insuring for helicopter rescue will not be compulsory. It is better if your insurance policy covers such conditions like trip cancellation because your deposits will not be refunded in case of cancellation.
Remember to bring the insurance certificate along with you if you are insured.
