Insurance

Something to not underestimate

For peace of your mind

When traveling to Nepal, the very last but not least thing you should definitely not underestimate is your travel insurance.

People love hiking in Nepal for the abundance of remote nature areas. But that also means that these are often impossible to reach by common means of transport and so in case of an accident the only option that often lefts is to summon a helicopter.

To put it into a perspective:

  • Cost of rescue helicopter – $2000
  • Hospital costs – $100 – $1000 (depends on accident)

That’s a lot of money. Enough to spoil whole your vacation and leave you with a bitter feel in your mouth. That’s why we strongly recommend to have your own insurance before your travel.
