    • Trip to Kullu

      The trip has been amazing as it was planned perfect by the team. Everything went smoothly hotels Cab Driver and the local guides were all good. The only thing you have to provide information earlier about the expenditure we may get because of local places and adventures as you are aware with local guides. That was a huge burden but if it is premeditated we would be ready for that . Thank you for the memorable days. Kullu River Rafting under heavy Rain. Shimla Hotel location and the climate. Manali Rohtang Pass. Travelling is the only thing we have not liked but it was unavoidable.

      I had a great experience in this trip of himachal. The cab driver daljit singh was very helpful, co-operative, very humble and good human being. He encouraged me in paragliding. Above all it was a wonderful trip. Hotels were good. In rohotang pass in manali, while horse riding in naldehera, while rafting in kullu and enjoying in khajjiar of dalhousie.

      it was a great trip. organization of all things was good. Need to improve 3 star hotels service and standards little more. Rest food was good only tha days ( almost 3 days) we have to travel early morning we had skipped our breakfast, there should be option for ready to take or packed one. shimala hotel was good, manali one has some room and services problem but outside view was awasom. Mention you about our driver GURMEET, he was very good guy and drive car very precisly. Hope to get new planned trip with you guys soon in future. Thanks for a good trip. Shimla Jakhu temple and mall road. Road side view after Kullu to Manali Manali Rohtang and Zero Point.

    • Trip to Kullu

      Everything from travel triangle and travelpedia was good but we have some concerns: the hotel we were given is too far from manali town(6Kms from main road on a hill) we loved the view from our room but we couldn’t have easy access to explore the city. We could come out only when cab was scheduled. But hotel people were extremely friendly and no comments regarding them. Cab drivers were in rush to complete the tour. I have complained this to Mr. Vikas of Travelpedia on this. One more suggestion that please never go and reserve tickets on Pal Travels. They dont allot seats which were reserved. They just sell the front seats on the spot and allot back seats for pre reserved travellers. If asked about it to bus crew they were harsh and told to consult the office after the journey which is pointless. I am anyway giving review on them wherever i find their name. We had complete View of manali town from the balcony of the hotel. Food(breakfast and dinner) was good and always served hot. The best experience of hot food on the extreme climate of Rohtang Pass. We experienced Sun-Cloudy-Rainy climate at the same time there. While visiting Kullu it was totally raining and we could even experience it.

      Suggestions for other travelers. Don't waste your money for adventure activities at Kufri. And don't waste money for rafting in Kullu if you have rafted at Rishikesh, Rishikesh rafting is more and more better than Kullu rafting. Must go at Jakhoo temple in Shimla. jakhoo temple in Shimla. And Rohtang paas

      I took package from walk holiday through travel tringle. Walk holiday arranged excellent hotel for me that thing i like most and walk holiday services are also good, i have given 1 start in one feedback that was my mistake and i also apologize for that . Walk holiday was very helpful for me. If i talked about travel triangle services so it is not good because i called to travel triangle agent they did not helped me and also took 250 rs charge for security. so i am not agree with travel triangle services. Walk holiday services are excellent in everything. whenever i called to my Walk holiday agent Mr. Sumit he helped me always. Thank u Sumit sir , i am happy with that trip . kullu river rafting
