Contact Snow Cat Travel

Our Sales Office for all customer enquiries is based in the UK, although as a Nepalese company, our Head Office is in Kathmandu.

The Sales Office is managed by Mark, who has trekked and travelled extensively throughout Nepal and Bhutan (and beyond).

Mark has over 40 years of experience in the travel industry with "blue-chip" UK Adventure Travel Operators.

Initially as a trek leader and then in senior management roles in both product and operations.

Mark endeavours to provide all our clients with responsive, friendly, and knowledgeable service.

Contact Mark by phone:

Tel: +44 1405 862917 (international)

Tel: 01405 862917 (from UK)

Our service pledge to you

When we created Snow Cat Travel, we appreciated from the very outset that it should be "for people by people" and our philosophy towards customer service is very simple: "treat people how we, as people, like to be treated".

With tailor-made treks and tours, a "hard sell" approach just won't work, AND it won't happen to you either.

We are not selling "bums on seats, high volume, join a group, fixed itinerary, fixed schedule treks, and tours".

We are genuinely here to help you. Yes, we use computers, but to handcraft a truly tailor-made trek or tour, you really need the human brain, where knowledge, experience, passion, and dedication still matter more than a programmed machine.

UK Sales Office Opening Hours
  • OPEN
    Monday - Friday

    1000hrs - 1500hrs (UK time)

    Saturdays, Sundays

    And England Public Holidays

Outside of our regular opening hours stated above, our sales office endeavours to operate on an "on request or on call" basis at weekends and evening. We understand that with the international nature of our client base and the varied time zones, our regular office hours may not always be convenient. So, if you'd like to chat with us on the telephone outside our usual office hours, please let us know in advance, and we will do our very best to arrange a convenient telephone appointment with you. We regularly manage to speak with clients as far apart as Australia and the U.S.A.
