Ganesh's 6 days trip to DharamshalaAll and all, it was a great trip and Driver was very professional. Solang Valley!
Kunal's 3 days trip to DharamshalaIt was a memorable trip and all because of travel triangle. All the arrangements were good. The driver was very friendly.He took us to really good places with breathtaking views. Couldn't have asked for more. Can't chose one!!

Gouravdhiman's 5 days trip to DharamshalaIt was amazing experience to visit manali Tyre ride in solang valley was our best experience
Vaishnaviashetty's 6 days trip to DharamshalaOur trip was so much good since we planned with Travel Triangle!! I should really appreciate the agent Jitendra and also Manali driver Coockie!! Jitendra was taking care of us at every point of travel so that nowhere we felt insecure. Manali driver was so good that we felt he is the best guide and humble man. Even the hotel we stayed in Manali was very good. It is the mid of Manali where everything is nearby. In Delhi the driver was delayed so we waited around 2 hrs in the early morning which was little bad but of course it happens in a long trip!! And also Delhi driver doesn't know much about the route and all which can be improved. And also 2nd day driver was very much slow!! We enjoyed every bit of trip!! The food, the tradition, the way people treats us in Manali, everything was just awesome. Solang Valley snow activities were very good. Paragliding and River Rafting was the best activities which everybody should try. Thanks

Me's 9 days trip to DharamshalaTour was well organised. The changes requested during the tour were also taken care of perfectly.
Bhumika's 6 days trip to DharamshalaI had planned a trip to shimla and Manali. I started my trip with shimla but as we all known about the situation because of corona virus threat, himachal Pradesh government had asked to close all tourist place so I couldnt visist manali. I ended my trip and returned back . However how much ever I visited in Shimla, it was all good. I must say himachal is a beautiful place with beautiful souls.
