Heli rescue and Nepal adventure

Helicopter rescue in Nepal adventure
Updated on May 03, 2024

Nepal's natural paradise, Himalayan scenery, high peaks, and hidden valleys make adventure activities the main tourist product of the Himalayan kingdom of Nepal. Most travelers visiting Nepal join on trekking and climbing trips on mountain valleys to high Himalayan peaks; thus, without any doubt, hiking and climbing expeditions are the main tourist adventure activities that allure adventurers around the globe.

Trekking and climbing occur on remote and high lands in the Himalayas; thus, proper insurance is necessary while venturing into the Himalayas. More than 2000 registered trekking companies are operating currently, and many other unregistered, illegal persons and firms offer the same services. Some of these offer a cheap/low cost for such a package and somehow indirectly benefit from it.

Nepal's government recently formed a committee to investigate the misuse of rescue helicopters on adventure tours in Nepal. The initial report claimed that some of the top-rated trekking companies in Trip Advisor and some big international company sub-contractor trekking companies were also involved in such scams. Some of the claims are a file on the tour departure in which trekkers complained that they were made sick by their guide and tour company. Hence, the trekkers must take the rescue helicopter in cash as tour operators and helicopter companies work for mutual benefit.

Trekkers and climbers must carefully choose their tour companies by analyzing their records and traveler reviews. Be aware of fake or paid reviews. We must be realistic in looking for the best and most reasonable trip cost based on the service and facilities. Thus, too low a price might indicate an indirect way to manipulate the trip.
