Significance of Trekking Insurance:
If you do not get trekking insurance in Nepal, you not only put your life in danger, but also end up bearing a huge cost associated with your bank account and your health. Trekking in Nepal involves a few obvious afflictions, such as breaking bone or sprained ankle. Moreover, a few trekkers may experience not so obvious types of afflictions, which include food poisoning, altitude sickness, hypothermia, skin infections, appendix ruptures and respiratory infections.
If any among the aforementioned incidents take place while you reach at 4,900 feet, you require a helicopter for landing down or come back for your treatment in Kathmandu. Helicopter evacuation in the Kathmandu City of Nepal costs at least 5,000 dollars USD, which does not remain included in any in-flight medical services or treatment in hospital.
Because of this only cost, most of the insurance companies do not cover the trekking costs fully. Good hospitals are rate in Nepal and charge a huge amount of money to provide necessary medical care to trekkers. Thus, without getting an appropriate travel insurance coverage, you will end up paying a huge bill.
