Travelling potentially involves some dangers. Therefore, you must buy a reliable travel insurance policy before you begin your trekking and expeditions.
Asian Hiking Team strongly recommend that you take out trip cancellation, health, air ambulance/helicopter rescue insurance. You should be aware that some policies do not include, or restrict, cover for this type of travel. You must ensure that the policy you do take provides an adequate level of protection and covers you for the activities involved.
You must carry proof of insurance (e.g. your insurance certificate) with you on the holiday; if you cannot provide this at the start of the holiday, you will be required to take out a suitable policy at that time. If this is not done or impossible for practical reasons, then you will not be allowed to continue with our trekking/climbing trips and will not be entitled to any refund for services not provided. Your insurance must include emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue services.
Asian Hiking Team guide and all staffs has insurance. The insurance amount for Sirdar, mountain guide and high altitude walker fund is fixed as Nrs 15 lakhs. Similarly, medical insurance is fixed as Nrs. 4 lakhs. Mountain Heli-rescue of 10,000 USD is also required.
