Mountain sickness or any event of an injury while trekking in Nepal, helicopter rescue or evacuation is often the only means of transportation available. However, these services can be expensive in Nepal, so we highly recommend purchasing travel insurance that covers emergency evacuation and medical treatment. You can find more information about the required policy on our Travel Insurance page.
Medevac (Medical Evacuation) is another term used for helicopter rescue or evacuation. As a responsible travel and trekking company in Nepal, we advise all our travelers to confirm with their insurance company that the policy they purchase covers emergency evacuation or medevac in case of any mishap during their trek in Nepal.
