I will be flying to Kathmandu on November 28 and will start the track on Nov 30 from Lukla. Is anybody out there during the same time?

Hey, I am thinking that one of you knowledable people may be able to answer my question.

I am visting Nepal in Dec / Jan this year and have been looking at travel insurance. Basically the company I normally go with does cover trekking and they do not specify a maximum altitude (provided no specialist ropes are used) but what they do not cover is mountain or helicopter rescue. We are planning to do trek of around 8 - 10 days duration but am not sure of which one as yet.

What I would like to know is whether trekking companies in Nepal can arrange for the mountain resuce / helicopter rescue portion of travel insurance locally once you arrive , or alternatively can anyone recommend a good company (in Australia) for insurance which offers this level of cover.

Thanks guys!
Alex.
