“The decision has been decided following a series of meetings with the trekking and expedition stakeholders and relevant trade unions in Nepal, to assist prevent unpleasant incidences like getting lost while traveling, having health problems, or experiencing natural disasters, etc.,”

A notice was written by the tourism board. “With its implementation, trekkers will have rapid access to [a] professional support system and will assist in tackling the difficulties of rescue operations in case of any unforeseen event,” the statement reads.

Some of the tallest mountains in the world, including Mount Everest, the tallest from sea level to summit, are found in Nepal’s Himalayan peaks. According to CNN, Mani R. Lamichhane, director of the Nepal Tourist Authority, saving single travelers will cost a lot of money.
