How to Reach Namgyal Monastery in Dharamshala
Namgyal Monastery is one of the most popular tourist attractions of Dharamshala. It is popular not just because it is the largest Tibetan Monastery in the world, outside of Tibet, but also because of the fact that it is considered the personal monastery of the Dalai Lama. It used to be located in Lhasa, set up in the 15th century, but during the Chinese invasion of Tibet, it was shifted to Dharamshala in India.
The monastery is located in a beautiful spot, overlooking the Dhauladhar Mountain Ranges, within the Tsuglagkhang complex. Getting to the monastery is pretty easy, since it is located pretty close to the city center. Getting there would take no more than 45 minutes, if you travel via NH503 and Khara Danda Marg. The road is pretty well maintained, so you can either drive your own car to the monastery or hire a taxi to take you there. On rare occasions, you can also take autos from McLeodGanj to the monastery.

Trip to Himachalneed more support from agent and helpline to resolve problems in emergency time khajjiar was best place
Trip to HimachalSimla and it's kamna hill hotel experience was amazing, In manali the worst experience ever in hotel monal and it's service was third class, and the travel agent arranged my honeymoon inclusion in this third class hotel, in which i was reminding that, hey bhai, aaj honeymoon inclusion ka bhulna mat, surprise plan ki aisi ki taisi kar di, again the dharmashala experience was Good, and in Delhousie again worst experience from travel agent, Main Khajjar point is remaining to visit, and money taken from me including it.. In Simla best memory of full trip.. After that the worst experience felt from travel agent..
Trip to HimachalIt's a memorable trip, we enjoyed lot in Agra and Shimla. Komal made the arrangements good.But in Manali we can't reach solang valley due to afternoon traffic(returning vehicles) and weather, we wasted time in Nehru Kund here driver could have guided properly. I advise for people don't spend time in Nehru Kund if you want to go solang valley and don't trust the words of people in snow dress shops. Hotel in Delhi is not upto mark, Hotel Aplin in Shimla and Mountain green villa in Manali are good. Thanks to Getz Destination and Driver Ajay for Making this trip successful.
Trip to Himachalhotels and their location was not good they were far away from main points so we can't go outside even for a walk after 6.our 3rd hotel Turkish cottage was changed suddenly when we arrive as per the hotel we dont have any booking here and we were asked to go to another hotel 10kms away. when we enquired the same to travel vichar agent they said we have booked another hotel for you and they don't care to even informed us luckily our driver had not gone far away he came back quickly and then we moved. so the new hotel was hotel snow retreat as per our plan it should be of 3star but it was hardly 2star rated hotel, washroom was not clean, room service was not available as the phone line was disconnected so i need to call them via mobile. after this hotel i felt cheated as it was a rs 500 per night hotel and we were too tired to call the agent for a change. Rs 1600 was charged as Himachal gvt has increased some kind of road tax on outside vehicles so i need to pay them separately. when my full package is for Himachal the car should be of himachal so that i could have saved some money atleast but we got a Punjab vehicle and i have paid the money to driver. only good thing was a good driver with a new car and the scenery of himachal, we got snowfall at various locations and we enjoyed different activities.
Trip to HimachalHotel maintenance, staff service in manali is excellent whereas the same in shimla is bit poor. The cab driver, Mr. Gagan is very friendly and he even guided us regarding the locations. Travel agency services are good. Mr. Ramit and Mr. Ritu are responded timely and provided good services. Solang valley in Manali, paragliding and river rafting in Kulu, Bungey jumping in amusement park
Trip to HimachalI love the whole arrangements from start to end of my trip, hotel is quite good n location of the hotel is awesome, nice view from the balcony, i just loved it. Cab driver is very cool, he explained each n every thing wherever he took us to visit and also he advised us what to do, what to buy or not. we visited every place which is mentioned in the package. Hotel staff is very good. I like n enjoyed it all :) I love the exploring Solang Valley and honeymoon inclusion like candle light, decoration was very special, i loved it & its the most memorable moments.❤️
Trip to HimachalI am very happy with over all trip and also walk holidays service Sumit is very helpful when I called him he was picked up in same time even in morning 6am this guys is amazing nice person but I am very disappointed from Cab and cab driver can vendor is good but cab condition and driver”s attitude Was not good even driver not clean also cars condition is very bad I am just disappoint with car condition and it’s driver so my final rating is 3/5 I have cut 2 points only for cab related other thing is awesome this is my first trip with any travel agent so a big thanks to Sumit to arrange all things and make my trip more comfortable
Trip to HimachalIt was great arrangement by travel triangle.I spent 3 night and 5 days in Manali.
Trip to HimachalOverall the review was average... The package on day 1 at Shimla was very good along with the hotel & food. However at the Manali hotel the food quality was very poor, In-fact the guests preferred to eat outside then eat the hotel food. Secondly the Driver looked to be a commission agent. He only halted the vehicle at the points he preferred/he had a tie up , due to which the guests had to spend an additional 7000/- which could have been avoided... The driver needs be informed that we provide service and see that the client benefits, Due to such behavior we do not have the client repeating with us, its just a One time visitor.
Trip to HimachalThe experience was awesome. What I expected to have in the tour package was fulfilled. Thank you to my trip advisor Ms. Shreya Macon . I also thankful to my agent MR. Praveen from Destination Tour & Travels, he is very good person, way of talking, and pre-responsiveness of trip, everything was excellent. I have also appreciate my cab driver Sanjeev who was very helpful and well behaved and nice person. Overall I have enjoyed my trip. Thank you...
