Mountain climbing insurance typically covers a wide range of climbing activities, including but not limited to rock climbing, ice climbing, alpine climbing, mountaineering, and trekking in high-altitude regions. The specific coverage may vary between insurance providers, so it’s important to carefully review the policy to ensure it includes the activities you plan to engage in.

In the event of an injury or illness sustained during your climb, the insurance policy may cover costs associated with medical treatment, hospitalization, ambulance services, and evacuation to a suitable medical facility.
