    It was very nice experience by booking tour through Travel Triangle. TT assured me perfect quality and trouble free tour. We have family tour of HimaChal of 8 days and 7 nights and got 3 star hotels at all 4 locations Shukla, Manali, Dharma shala and Dalhousie in reasonable price. All hotels rooms and services were of good quality except of hotel vijay palace Dharma shala. Food quality was also awesome at all hotels. Driver and vehicle provided for tour was also good. We all enjoyed our tour . We got snowfall at Kufri Shimla which was memorable experience for all of us.

    Naveena's 3 days trip to Solan

    Better not to book with this travel agency. Travel agent Dheeraj was only helpful with the travel plan and bookings. But when we needed help, he turned his back on us. Travel agency did not take much care in booking the right drive at all. Driver was not at all aware of our itinerary or cared to listen to us. And when he was asked to pick us up at a point, he straight away rejected though the distance he has to travel back was just 3kms. We explained this situation to Dheeraj for help, but was useless. Funny part is the driver dropped us in that location few hours back and it was so hard to explain this to the driver or Dheeraj. Even locals tried to help us explain this to the driver, but stopped after hearing driver's rant. At a point, we were stuck on the road in cold weather and helpless as we can't explain to driver and Dheeraj was rude. He doesn't know how to deliver client's feedback to the driver at all. Driver argued with us for 30mins after picking up and didn't respect us at all for the feedback. On the last day, we tried to give 200rs for the driver as he had to travel back 3 times to pick us up the other day and for the fuel he had to use. He didn't accept the money saying he need minimum 500rs or doesn't need at all. Then also he was rude and didn't behave well. Finally our trip was a disaster because of this agency's planning and execution. Only good thing was the hotel and it's food and staff.

    We enjoyed the trip a lot. Full of fun , the best sightseeing n wonderful nature seen n captured by my eyes n camera the beautiful memories. The bad thing about hotel is they dindnt serve the welcome drink both in shimla as well as manali. And it's dosent fill good to ask the welcome drink by the guest since we have paid they should serve at the time of check in. The memories is the Hamta pass we enjoyes the snow n sikking . When someone visit this place pls try the magiee in hamta pass it's very tasty

    It was an overall nice experience to trip with Zainab travels, the assigned driver is very professional and friendly in nature. provided car is also in good condition, he takes all the sightseeing as per the itinerary. also, Mr. Ankit was taking updates feedback from time to time that was professionally good, all hotels are good in conditions except Chandigarh, if it's better then I could have given 10/10, In short, it's a good travel agency to book a trip to Himachal Pradesh(Simla-Kullu-Manali), go with Zainab Travels......

    FAQ's of Solan

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    There is no problem related to water availability during your stay near the Jatoli temple due to the rivulet called the Ashwani Khadd that flows continuously throughout the year. The small river is the source of water in the majority of parts in Solan. So, there has been no water shortage reported until now in living accommodations near the Jatoli temple.

    No, the temple is not crowded during weekends. The temple has devotees coming for praise and worship during the festival season in Mahashivratri. If you visit the temple during the festival season, do not miss out on the processions and proceedings that take place during festivals is astounding and will leave you wide-eyed.
