We advise travel insurance to all travelers are interested of trekking in Nepal. Trekking in Nepal is walking in the trail (path) of mountains. In mountain areas health treatment facilities are not standard. There are less available of good hospitals and doctors. So if in case the trekker suffers from severe sickness, he should bring to Kathmandu by helicopter for better treatment. And the helicopter charter fare is expensive in Nepal. If you have already travel insurance, your money will be saved.

When selecting a travel insurance policy we require that at a minimum you are covered for medical expenses including emergency repatriation. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. We Himalayan Smile Treks and Adventures Pvt. Ltd. shall have no liability for loss, theft of or damage to baggage or personal effects.

We also let you know that Nepalese Insurance Company does not have travel insurance policy for foreign nationals. They have this policy only for Nepalese citizens. So we advise you do your travel insurance with Insurance Company in your own place.

Charles Andreasen says:

Unforgettable Experience I sought out a Raby's services when my friends and I decided to undertake the Manaslu trek. I've done a number of treks on the teahouse circuit where there's a beaten track which you can follow from village to village, finding your accommodation and meals without any difficulty. Manaslu was different, it was less developed, the department of tourism required you to have certain permits and most importantly you were required to have a guide. All in all, Raby was a good guide. He tailored the trip to our group's requests. He allowed us input on what we wanted to do, what we wanted to see and I believe that without him our trip wouldn't have been nearly as enriching. We saw sights we would have otherwise missed, he helped us navigate a patch of difficult weather which we probably would have been too inexperienced to have borne on our own. As such, I'd recommend his services and if you want someone experienced in some of the lesser known regions of Nepal I think you would have trouble finding someone to match his enthusiasm and experience. Without rereading the same ground that other reviewers write, I will just concur with everything positive that j_chou90 says about him in an earlier review. If you need a guide, look no further than Raby and JRN Treks.
