Travel insurance is a significant aspect of any kind of adventure activities or tours in Nepal. It helps you to travel without worries and with great confidence. If any kinds of accidents or any types of health problems arise, you can get a quick helicopter rescue from the mountains. If you are going for mountaineering or peak climbing as well as the alpine trekking activities, you should always think of your safety and quick rescue is needed. Also, there are not facilitated hospitals and reliable transport services in the Himalayan region of Nepal.
