To partake on a journey with Himalayan Hermitage you MUST be covered by a travel medical insurance. If you arrive without having this coverage, you will not be able to participate on the journey. This insurance needs to include trekking or travel over 4,000 meters (13,000 ft) for those participating on our ‘Pilgrimage to Mount Kailash & Sacred Sites in Tibet’. For those participating on our journeys in Bhutan and Nepal, up until 3,000 meters (10,000 ft) is enough. The coverage also needs to include emergency medical expenses, helicopter evacuation, emergency repatriation and COVID-19 treatment. We highly recommend a travel cancellation insurance as you never know what might come up in life at the time of getting ready to leave for a big journey.
