We recommend and utilize the services of Global Rescue for Himalaya rescue insurance, a worldwide medical evacuation service. Himalaya Alpine Guides Rescue Insurance.
It is not compulsory to use Global Rescue to join a Himalaya Alpine Guides trip. You do need to check that your insurance covers helicopter evacuation for high altitude though (most do not). Many companies that used to provide this stopped their service in 2012 due to the high abuse of the service in Nepal’s Everest region. Many mountaineering and alpine clubs offer helicopter rescue insurance, shop around, and see what you can find. But do know that Global Rescue’s service is excellent, and reasonably priced.
Many mountaineering clubs and organization offer rescue insurance for their members. Do check in your countries alpine club for Himalaya rescue insurance. Do let us know what you find as well, as we’d like to add more links to this page for trekkers and climbers coming to the Himalaya.
