Trekking is to make a slow arduous journey on foot, especially, but not necessarily to hike through mountainous areas. Most trekking is challenging, so you need to be in good physical condition and ensure that you carry suitable equipment and supplies.
Unless you will be hiking at low level on Easy or Moderate well trodden paths, Treks must be along recognised routes and be on an organised tour. Trekking into unknown territory might sound like fun, but would know if you get lost or injured. It is far safer and indeed compulsory in many areas to travel as part of a group who would have experienced guides in that particular region.
We do not provide cover for the cost of search and rescue unless medically necessary.
Our policy includes cover up to 6000 metres providing it does not include any technical climbing.
Risks include physical exhaustion, altitude sickness, and injury. The most frequent symptom are headaches, nausea and extreme tiredness bought on by the effect of the thinner air at high altitudes. Besides, you should be prepared for the cold conditions. That is why there is a tour guide who should be aware of these risks and will always be looking out for your safety and wellbeing. Make sure to follow your guide's advice at all times.
