At Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions, we prioritize the safety and well-being of our clients above all else. We strongly advise that every participant in our holidays must be insured against medical and personal accident risks. This includes cover for repatriation costs, air ambulance, and helicopter rescue services, which can be incredibly expensive in the event of an emergency.
We also recommend that our clients take out delayed departure and cancellation insurance, as all deposits paid are non-refundable. In our experience, a relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. When traveling to Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan, or India, it is essential to have insurance that covers the activities being undertaken during your trip. This is particularly important if you are planning to go trekking or climbing/expedition in the Himalayas, where emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue, including medical expenses, may be required.
We understand that choosing the right travel insurance can be daunting, especially if you are unsure of what activities will be covered. Therefore, we strongly advise that you take the time to find a policy that suits your needs. At Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions, we can assist you in finding the right travel insurance policy for your trip, and we also recommend World Nomads for Nepal travel insurance, which includes cover for trekking over 4,000 meters.
Please note that most standard travel policies will not cover you for trekking over 4,000 meters, so it is crucial to check that your insurer is aware of your itinerary and can provide cover for the activities you will be undertaking.
For group tours in urban areas, ambulance or helicopter rescue coverage is not mandatory, but it is still advisable to have it. In Tibet, Bhutan & India trips, there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so there is no need to buy air ambulance coverage.
If you are participating in one of our adventure tours, we require you to provide us with a copy of your insurance policy or carry it with you while you are on the trip. We are on-call 24 hours a day, and in case of an emergency, we will arrange a 24-hour mountain rescue service to ensure that you receive the best possible care and attention.
At Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions, we take safety and quality service seriously, and we run all our trips in a responsible way. We want our clients to have the best possible experience while exploring the beautiful landscapes of Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan, and India, and that includes ensuring their safety and security. So, before you embark on your adventure with us, make sure that you have the right travel insurance to protect yourself against any unforeseen circumstances.
