Hi there, Yael from WorldNomads.com here!
Hiking / climbing is covered by our policy for US permanent residents, but only when:
- you are climbing at 15,000 feet or less; and
- it has been arranged by a recognized company (that is a company that is licensed and employs experienced staff).
Please read the policy wording for the full terms and conditions of the coverage offered, including any applicable exclusions, conditions and limitations to cover.
Unfortunately this is the extent of high altitude cover for World Nomads; if you need cover for a higher altitude limit you may need to check with other insurance companies to see if they have suitable products available.
For other WorldNomads insurance related questions please feel free to direct your enquiry directly to our Customer Service team: http://worldnomads.com/contactus.aspx

Why was this limitation on height and arranged-by not mentioned in anything before I bought the policy? I am trekking with someone who currently lives in Nepal and has plenty of experience. I doubt we will go above 15,000 FT. I read everything I saw when buying the policy. almost 5 years ago
