3. TRAVEL INSURANCE
Travel insurance is compulsory for all travelers before making any trip. Master Himalaya strongly recommends travel insurance for those who are willing to travel Nepal. Your travel insurance must cover accidents, injury, illness and death medical expenses, including any related to pre-existing medical conditions, emergency repatriation (including helicopter rescue and air ambulance where applicable) and personal liability as per travel insurance policy. It is necessary to ensure your travel insurance while travelling to Nepal because extra charter flight and extra services might be costly in case of unforeseen circumstances.
