I will be taking a two week trekking trip later this year. Can I take a travel insurance which also covers the risks I may face when trekking?

You can take a travel insurance policy for this specific trip. Almost all the leading insurers offer this policy. If you plan to engage in adventure sports, then do make sure you declare this while buying the policy because these activities are often excluded from insurance covers. A few insurers have travel policies that are structured to specifically meet the risks that one is exposed to when undertaking such trips – you should check the scope of cover with such policies as well.
