First Aid:

While trekking small accidents or injuries can occur so we should carry a first aid box. We all will be far from the hospital and health post region so we have to take care of ourselves for a time being. The major difficulty that may arise while trekking is altitude sickness. Anyone can suffer from this disease when they travel in high-altitude regions. While traveling in high-altitude regions it becomes difficult for the person to breathe and he/she will not be able to take much oxygen. In this state, he/she is suffering from Altitude Sickness. Thus we should carry preventive measures for altitude sickness, paracetamol, bite/burn cream, antiseptic, etc. Garlic soup is considered one of the local remedies for altitude Sickness.

Travel Insurance:

As wise travelers, we should do personal travel insurance when we are traveling to Nepal. This insurance will cover expenses for any accidents, high altitude Sickness, Illness, Stolen, Lost or Delayed Baggage, etc. Thus it is essential to do travel insurance. It is quite beneficial in case of any uninvited events. This insurance also covers the expenses raised by flight delays. There are various types of travel Insurance providing different services in case of occurrence. We just need to do the right Travel Insurance for better safety and protection. In addition to this, travel insurance also covers the cost of the trip you booked which was canceled due to various reasons like natural disasters, political instability, etc.

Trek Cancellation Terms and Conditions:

 If the trek is booked and we cancel it for various reasons then there are some terms and conditions which are applied in the refund policy.  Travel and Trek Agency also do various bookings like booking guides, accommodation, vehicles, etc for the trip. So to overcome all of it certain policies are made. According to Trekking Terms and Conditions, if the client cancels the booking of the trek then the refund policy is as given:
