Travel insurance is crucial to join the Chulu West peak climbing. We ask our guests to buy travel insurance that covers emergency air evacuation to provide instant medical assistance during the trek. Not only this, but travel insurance will also come in handy in case you lose your luggage, face flight cancellation, or for medical coverage.
There is no hospital in the Annapurna region, and any big injury or sickness may require air evacuation to a hospital in Kathmandu. Without travel insurance, it gets tough for us to provide air evacuation to you on time.
