Travel Insurance

Third Rock Adventures offers trips to Nepal, Bhutan, India, and Tibet, and it is highly recommended that travelers buy travel insurance for any trips to these countries. 

Basically, travel insurance is a plan or investment that you purchase to safeguard your travel. While traveling, you may have to face problems like medical emergencies, trip cancellations, emergency evacuation, and travel delays.

Considering the fact that medical crisis can occur and even the best-planned trips get canceled, it is mandatory for clients to have travel insurance before embarking on any trips to Nepal, India, Tibet, or Bhutan. This is the best way of being prepared for unforeseen circumstances and risks. Travel insurance reimburses you for the loss depending on the policy. 

Travel Insurance for Trekking and Hiking

For any trekking or hiking trips in the Himalayas, a traveler is recommended to buy travel insurance. Hiking on the outskirts of the city area is comparatively comfortable and involves less risk. But at higher altitudes and remote areas, there is a high risk of Acute Mountain Sickness and common ailments like hypothermia, skin infections, and tummy troubles.

If you are going for trekking in Nepal, make sure that your insurance covers helicopter rescue cost, and evacuation, including medical expenses and trip cancelation.

Travel Insurance for Peak Climbing

Peak climbing and expedition trips are considered risky activities than other outdoor activities. You will be climbing above 6,000m, and arguably there’s high risk due to high altitudes, extreme temperatures, and lack of visibility, to name a few. And therefore, for peak climbing, make sure to buy insurance that includes emergency medical evacuation coverage, helicopter evacuation, repatriation coverage and trip cancellation coverage.

Insurance for Other Outdoor Activities

Outdoor activities can be fun, but you cannot underestimate the risk while traveling. Although outdoor activities in Nepal are comparatively low-risk activities, unforeseen circumstances can cost you huge expenses.  In that sense, travel insurance for outdoor activities is a must, but unlike peak climbing and trekking, outdoor activities necessarily do not require advanced travel insurance. For instance, travel insurance for city tours does not necessarily require helicopter rescue.

However, it is best practice to buy an insurance plan that covers the medical issue, flight cancelation, trip cancelation, lost luggage, and coronavirus-related emergencies.

Recommended Travel Companies

Relaxed and successful holidays are impossible without good insurance. Please carefully choose the insurance policy that covers all the activities being undertaken. The insurance policy you buy for the trek is different from the insurance for a climbing expedition.
