is this travel insurance covers high risk activities, like Himalayas hiking?


The IHI-BUPA travel insurance policy offered by CCW Global will cover any trekking or mountaineering activity where specialized equipment (such as crampons, ice axes, or oxygen tanks) is not required. As such, Hiking or Trekking in the Himalaya range would be covered.

However, it is important to note that the policy specifically excludes:

“Active participation in any motorsport show, motorsport race or motorsport competition, base jumping, paragliding, and mountaineering that requires specialized equipment.”

Additionally, also excluded from coverage are:

“Expeditions, mountaineering, and trekking in Antarctica, the North Pole, and Greenland.”
