Best Travel Insurance - Himalayan Glacier

Travel Insurance

Himalayan Glacier Adventure & Travel Company offers mainly three categories of Adventure Travel Holidays in the Himalayas, Tanzania, South Asia, India and its sub-continents, China, and Mongolia.  Those trips are Culture & Leisure Tours, Trekking & Walking Holidays and Climbing & Expedition in the ice and snowy mountains.

It is a mandatory condition for joining any of Himalayan Glacier’s trips to be protected against comprehensive expenses likely to incur due to health issues, accidents, flight cancelation, trip cancelation (due to pandemic, regional epidemic, political riots and protests, natural calamities). It is not necessary that the insurance coverage be same for different products. 

A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is quite shocking. Therefore, we strongly recommend travel insurance for everyone who signs up with Himalayan Glacier. We recommend you to be careful while choosing a policy as some insurance companies make special exceptions for adventure travel. Before buying your insurance make sure your insurer is aware of the Himalayan Glacier adventure itinerary that you are going to undertake and is agreeable to cover all activities being undertaken in the trip. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in the Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For a group tour in the urban areas, your insurance coverage of air ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however it is better to have them with you. Again, for Tibet trips there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so it is not necessary to buy the air ambulance coverage in Tibet trips. Also, check your insurance policy firmly to include trip cancellation, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.

Insurance for Culture & Leisure Tours

Culture & Leisure Tours usually do not involve traveling to risky zones or high altitudes; thus, they do not require advanced travel insurance. However, for these tours, your insurance should cover medical issues, pandemic, epidemic, flight cancelation and trip cancelation issues.

Trekking & Walking Holidays

The difficulty level on different trekking areas vary mainly due to the altitude and the mountain terrain, which might pose a high risk of life. You might need an emergency evacuation in areas where roads and hospitals are not accessible. For these types of trips, you must inform your insurance company about the maximum altitude that you will be trekking to. Accordingly, your insurance company will cover for emergency search, evacuation and medical issues. Also, don’t forget to include trip cancelation in the insurance coverage. Before buying your insurance policy, please contact one of our travel consultants for more details.  

Climbing & Expedition

Climbing & Expedition trips are extremely risky. In the mountain cliffs, you will be climbing with ropes on ice and snow and there is a high risk of fatality. For these trips, you will require an advanced rescue insurance whose premium is usually a bit higher. Insurance companies offer policies based on the altitude that you will be tackling during your trip. Remember – search, rescue, and advanced medical insurances are mandatory for your climbing & expedition trips with us.

You need to send us a copy of your insurance policy details or carry it with you while you come for the trip.  If you are unable to present the insurance that is required for a Himalayan Glacier trip, the company solely reserves the right to cancel your trip.

Note: We do not sell or coordinate or even encourage you to buy an insurance from any particular insurance company. This is just a recommendation and a professional advice to you. You can find an insurance company of your choice from our recommendations given below:
