Trekking insurance is similar to Personal Accident Insurance (PAI) with some additional features. Trekking insurance has been introduced in the market for trekker and mountaineers to address some additional risks, which is not covered under PAI.
PAI covers only accidental injuries [incl. death] by violent and visible means. However, high altitude sickness, Frost Bite and Blizzard are major risks in Trekking/Mountaineering, which are not covered under PAI. Trekking Insurance Policy covers these risks for Nepalese as well as for the foreign citizens. However, Snow Blindness is not covered.
