Mountaineering Insurance

Post by vangraan »

Where do South Africans get insurance that will cover them for peaks above 6000m?
tic.co.za has a Sport Cover add on but that only cover some very well knows peaks and you need to be guided.

If I want to climb a 5500m peak unguided are there any options?
What do South Africans do that go to Everest and the higher ranges?

The Austrian Alpine club membership benefit is only up to 5500m, and you will needs extra cover for peaks above 6000m and this extra cover is not available to South Africans.

Thanks,

Billy
