Shopping for Everest gear in Kathmandu

Airport in Kathmandu
A Ripcord Rescue Travel Insurance client had landed in Nepal in time for her Himalayan adventure, but her luggage did not.  She risked missing her Everest trip if she were to wait another day for her belongings to arrive. She had to shop for replacement gear in Kathmandu: climbing/camping equipment, as well as warm clothing and other essentials. In all, she incurred losses of about $2,800. As a comprehensive travel insurance client with Ripcord, she filed a baggage and personal effects claim and Ripcord reimbursed her for her purchases.
