It is important to us that everyone is adequately insured during our tours and activities. Read on for information regarding your personal insurance and your guides and porters.
Your personal insurance is not included in our tours and you will have to provide us a proof of your insurance before we do activities like trekking.
As normal insuances usually do not cover travels, you will probably have to book an extra foreign travel insurance with a good accident and health insurance that covers the activities that you will do. Especially during trekking, but also during other activities like mountain biking or rafting, you will probably be in areas that are not easily accessible, so please confirm that your insurance includes mountain rescues. By now Nepal does have some good hospitals in Kathmandu and Pokhara, but you might want to look out for an insurance that covers transport back to your country as well.
Our guides and porters
In Nepal, insurance has always been a complicated issue, as the volumes of business are not high enough to warrant good service from service providers. Nevertheless, Socialtours.com now has in place a comprehensive insurance policy for its guides and porters so they will be fully insured while working for us and providing you a memorable trip.
