Amazing Authentic Treks & Expedition (p) Ltd. arranges helicopter services, both for medical evacuation or helicopter rescue in Nepal and sightseeing or heli-tours. Helicopter operators in Kathmandu don’t fly without a guarantor in Kathmandu and take a long time to operate if approached by individuals. So, on behalf of our clients we stay as a guarantor make the initial payments-to be claimed later from the client’s insurance-and arrange for the helicopter rescue.
Emergency rescue or medical evacuation
Sometimes trekkers might suffer from ailments like altitude sickness, heart problems, dysentery or fracture during a trek. While there are clinics at some places for minor ailments, major hospitals are days away from most of the trekking trails. So, a client’s life could be at risk if he/she is not rescued immediately.
If you are trekking with us, we can arrange for a helicopter rescue at the earliest possible from Kathmandu. If you are traveling individually, it is difficult to arrange a helicopter rescue as helicopter operators don’t fly without upfront payment or guarantor in Kathmandu. If you are traveling with us, we can become the guarantor for the helicopter operators, make the initial payments and send a helicopter for your rescue. We claim the amount later from your insurance. Please make sure you have a travel insurance that covers for emergency helicopter services for rescue to avail this service. You can contact us directly or through one of our crew members with information on the kind of ailment, your location and your insurance details.
The cost of rescue depends on your location. Helicopter operators charge about USD 2000.00 per hour for all services. A typical rescue from Everest base camp region would cost USD 6000.00. The prices are subject to change.
Mountain flight, sight-seeing, heli-tour and heli-trekking :
We also arrange helicopter services for mountain flights, sightseeing, expedition, heli-tours and heli-trekking. The service is suitable for tourists who do not have time to savour the beauty of Nepal or are unable to trek up the mountains due to physical conditions.
