Trip to Himachalnice trip very understanding people nd hotel facilities are awsome nd cab nh driver is also very good. Best memory in solang valley
Trip to HimachalOverall It was Good Journey . Good Part was : 1. Hotel in Manali was Good Although the approach road is not that much feasible 2. Breakfast and Dinner Was Good at Hotel 3. Cab condition was very good , driver was polite and good Need Improvement : 1. Some excursions are missed like Manikaran which was planned in trip and I think extra amount was taken for it as well 2. Although we are ready Everyday early but Driver insist to start by 10 am or 10.30 am only due to which we faced a lot of times traffic Jams.If tourist are ready early then I think the travel agency should start excursions early to avoid traffic jams and to avoid place being over crowded 3. Some more places can be covered which are on the way but as it was not mentioned in itinerary so driver was also not assure of it to cover or not to cover. 4. I THINK CAB AGENCY SHOULD INFORMED DRIVER TO STOP AT PLACES/SHOPS WHICH ARE BENEFICIAL TO TOURISTS AS THEY ARE LOCALS NOT AT PLACES WHICH ARE GIVING THEM COMMISSIONS. DRIVER SHOULD ACT AS GOOD LOCAL GUIDE WITHOUT THINKING OF COMMISSIONS
Trip to HimachalHotels and food quality is worst, only hotel in Manali is average and hotels are very far from city. Honeymoon inclusion is just waste of money. In welcome drink just received glass of water. Overall very bad experience.
Trip to HimachalDo not recommend hotel grand hriday in Amritsar. There services are not good. Food is of poor quality. Khajjiar is the best place to visit. Hotel harmony blue is very good to recommend to any tourist.

Trip to HimachalThe assistance given by the Travel Triangle and the Traveller Agency Associates during journey was very good however some issues I have already mentioned over the whatsapp group created by Travel Triangle team and same shall be look upto.
Trip to HimachalCool river tourist service is really bad. They don't know how to manage the things each and every day of our trip one or the other issue was there related to the things they booked it could be related to hotel or driver . trip would have been even more fun if i didn't have to face all these issues. This agency has to work on this very seriously otherwise it can affect travel triangle itself.

FAQ's of Dalhousie
Read on to find out why our customers love us!
Since Dalhousie is a small town, walking is a viable option. That is only for enthusiasts though, the common practice is to get motorcycles or cars. Due to the temperature though, a car is a better idea than a bike.
In terms of attractions, Dalhousie doesn't offer much. The nearby sites of Khajjiar and Chamba are must visits when staying in Dalhousie and so are the markets and the malls that the town was built around back in the day. Obviously, going to Dainkund is also a priority and there a few beautiful churches around the town as well.
There are rooms available in Dalhousie from upwards of Rs.1000- Rs.8000. A fairly luxurious room on an average would cost roughly Rs.4000 a night and an average to decent meal costs in the range of Rs. 250- Rs.350. Therefore, an average but luxurious day in Dalhousie would cost around Rs.2500- Rs.3000.
Regardless of whom you go on the trip with, spending roughly 3-4 days in Dalhousie is quite long enough. While it is a quaint little town and it is very beauiful, there are not many things to do. So 3-4 idyllic days spent in this small town with the beautiful scenery should be good enough that include visits to Khajjiar and Chamba.
Dalhousie does not have many hospitals, the main hospitals in the town are the Civil Hospital and the Military Hospital in the Cantonment area. Civil Hospital is on Subhash Chowk Road. The number for Civil Hospital is +91-1899-242125 and the ambulance number is 108.
The best time to visit Dalhousie has to be the summer months of March to May. The summer months are refreshingly cool here and it is a welcome escape from the heat. However, this is also peak season for tourism and it is quite crowded at this time. Winter, of course, is excellent for those who enjoy snowfall.
