    • Trip to Himachal

      Overall experience was good. Only before start of the trip travel triangle agent Ms Ankita Sinha never responded to my call. She immediately switches off her phone. I suggest please do not get in coordination with ms Ankita Sinha as at the start of the trip she will not respond to any of your call. Manali hotel service was good. Only device of the Shimla hotel name hotel applyn is not good. Also please send the itienary to driver before start of your trip. As he will say that this places are not considered in trips when the trip starts. Shimla Kufri Manali Solang Valley

    FAQ's of Dharamshala

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Yes, it is completely safe in Dharamshala. One will find hundreds of tourists anytime they visit the place. Moreover, the locals are quite friendly and helpful.

    The Triund trek is suitable for most people. It is an easy trek of 11km with an uphill trek of 4-5 hours.

    Paragliding at Bir is quite safe. Just follow the instructions properly. Do ask your para-pilot for his license to make sure he is an expert. However, no adventure activity is 100% safe.

    Dal lake, Namgyal monastery, Bhagsunag temple and waterfall, Kangra Art Museum, HPCA stadium and Tibet museum are some of the places one can visit in Dharamshala.

    Dharamshala has plenty of shops selling Himachali clothes and various kinds of handicrafts mostly associated with Buddhism and Tibet.

    Backpackers Hostel, McLeod Ganj and Zostel, Bir are the top options for a person travelling alone. These are the hostels introduced with the concept of getting travellers from different countries and places together at a very nominal rent that is ideal for a solo traveller.
