Medical Emergency Evacuation
The weather conditions in mountainous
Nepal are often extreme. As a result, trekkers in
the himalayas of Nepal, members of expedition looking
to climb the Nepalese mountains and travellers to
pilgrimage destinations such as Kailash Mansarovar
may require urgent medical evacuation (Medevac),
casualty evacuation (Casevac) in case of injury
during their journey.
When you are hit by altitude sickness,
the difference between life and death is measured
by how quickly and efficiently you can arrange for
medical evacuation (Medevac) services.
Air Ananya : Medevac Services
In emergency medical situations, for urgent medical
evacuations (Medevac) you can rely on only a helicopter
that can reach you in minimal time. You can depend
upon Air Ananya to offer you professional helicopter
medevac services for any emergency situation in
the Nepal region.
Our helicopters are capable of
flying at very high altitudes making them ideal
for emergency medical evacuation (medevac) of trekkers/mountaineers/travellers
from remote mountains of Nepal. Each of our Medevac
helicopters is capable of carrying up to three stretchers
with seating for attendants and fitted to hold equipment
for for medical emergency evacuation services, such
as saline drips etc.
If you are planning an adventure
trip to remote areas in Nepal be it trekking in
the Himalayas or pilgrimage to Kailash Mansarovar
