Bhumika's 6 days trip to ShimlaI 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.

Suhas's 4 days trip to ShimlaTrip to Kullu and Manali, February 2020:- Overall, a good trip. Great food, great accommodation. The location of the hotel provided (The Manali Lodge) was great. Provided us with a great view of the snow-covered peaks. The cab driver (Mr. Mani Bhai) was very polite and arrived before the daily scheduled time to pick us up. Things that I disliked: Activities included in the itinerary at Solang Valley were paid ones. The on trip coordination with Travel Triangle was poor. Overall, I will recommend TravelTriangle to anyone if TravelTriangle improves theirs on trip coordination.

Lakshraj's 7 days trip to ShimlaWe had a good and a memorable trip. Travel agent was available at all times. Cleared our queries then and there. Solang valley - we enjoyed a lot in solang valley, apart from skiing (which is not worth for it's cost) everything was good. River rafting - It is a memorable one. Cannot express in words. It is nice that we didn't miss that. Mall road, Manali - We can do purchase over there. It's a good market where you can bargain and do the purchase
