Safety and Insurance

According to Nepal’s law, it is not mandatory to have insurance to travel to Nepal but in terms of your personal and financial security, it is a must when the trip has been booked to Nepal especially for the high altitude treks and peak climbing. Choose the insurance company that covers all the aspects of travel insurance from flight to trek. Some of these are emergency evacuation from an altitude of 5000 m plus by a helicopter, altitude mountain sickness relief, trip delay, trip cancellation, flight delays both international and domestic, the loss of baggage, pre-existing medical condition, hotel bills on bed and breakfast, medical bills and so on.

Please see the number of services provided by the travel insurance. Does the company provide custom travel insurance service too, please also see that? Your insurance company will also provide service based on your particular needs. Be very selective while choosing the service because you have also to see what your insurance company does not cover.

Altitude Sickness: Our itineraries have been designed to allow enough time for acclimatization. However, in case of altitude sickness, our guides will bring you to lower altitudes and give you a dose of Acetazolamide. Further treatment, if required must be covered by your insurance policy.

Note: Please send us a copy of your travel insurance plan before arriving in Nepal and bring the original document with you. This will allow us (Glorious Himalaya team) to make plans for rescue arrangements in case of emergency.
