Helicopter Rescue in Nepal

There are a few reliable medical posts in the hills, such as the Himalayan Rescue Association (HRA) posts at Pheriche, Machhermo and Manang, and the Khunde Hospital which are all staffed by Western doctors. However, most accidents or illnesses will occur in the absence of reliable medical care. If you find yourself ill or injured in the mountains, here are the steps will take to rescue you.


Our staff will try to treat the medical problem themselves. If altitude sickness is suspected, we will descend with the victim immediately. For the more serious medical problems emergency helicopter rescues will be arranged by Adventures Trekking.

If helicopter infiltration is possible, it may be necessary to transport the patient to a place where it is possible to land the helicopter.


Be sure your policy specially covers helicopter evacuation. Adventures trekking arranges helicopter services, both for medical evacuation or helicopter rescue in Nepal and sightseeing or Helicopter Tour in Nepal. Helicopter operators in Nepal don’t fly without a guarantor in Nepal and take a long time to operate if approach by individuals. Also check that your insurance policy does not exclude emergency rescue for Trekking in Nepal, Peak Climbing in Nepal or you may have a difficult time settle a claim.

This is the most important part of insurance while on adventure trip in Nepal. Please be sure that your insurance policy must cover all your rescue expenses probably by Helicopter for emergency rescue if incase. Although you will not connect in such activities, you may not be able to convince a flatland insurance company of this fact. If you are injured and unable to travel, you can ask for a rescue helicopter or charter flight from a remote airstrip only if you have definite proof you can pay for it before leave home. So, on behalf of our clients we stay as a guarantor make the initial payments-to be claimed later from the client’s insurance and arrange for the helicopter rescue for our valued customers.


Guaranteeing Payment


Helicopter rescue services will rarely come to your aid without you either making a cash deposit or a promise in Kathmandu.If you are trekking with Welcome Nepal Treks we will arrange the rescue and initial payments, but the victim is responsible for reimbursing the cost of the flight which can be as high as USD 2500 per hour. Again, make sure you have insurance covering emergency helicopter rescue.
