Fishing in Gulmarg
Many people love fishing and fishing in a hill station is something else. The serenity, view and weather that hill stations have to offer, make the whole fishing activity even more interesting. Fishing is more of a summer activity in Gulmarg.
Since the summer sees extra crowd populating the ski resorts, it is recommended ...

Trip to Kashmirthank to holiday planner for my tour with economy rate visit in Sonamarg bcz first time I play on snow with my child and my wife
Trip to KashmirAs we reached hotel , the reception staff waited us about one hour inspite of showing booking invoice. In between they dint ask even for water while welcome drink was mentioned in booking invoice. Second day The cab driver carried us to pahalgam while it was not in our tour destnation . there the attitude of horse operators was very rude. At last day the driver asked to come at 10.30 am so that the flight might be boarded at 1.15pm but the driver couldn't reach up to 12.00. so in emergency we hired another taxy to send one family at airport.
Trip to KashmirIt was good managed by Classic holiday as per our plan. Miss Hina was so supportive till out travel start. We have only concern with TravelTringle who took the convenience charges and not provide us the feedback which they have to do .They just took charges from customer and forget. I had direct contact of travel agent (miss Hina) who has sent me all details on whatsapp. I have not to wait reaponse from Travel tringle executive. So trust on your agent through you have made booking not on traveltringle agents. Overall good trip .... Kashmir is very nice place which is a memorable for us. The good thing is that houseboat was vey nice means more from our expectations. Good behaviour of houseboat person. Will recommend same boat to other.
Trip to KashmirAll thanks to classic holidays kashmir, specially miss rabiya. She organised the trip perfectly. Iam a travel agent, still i wanted to book this package from local agent in kashmir to ensure safety. As media hyped so much about pullwama attack, so family nd relative was curious nd said no to kashmir, bt i stick to plan. And so do rabiya ensured us safe trip. From start to end trip was great. Travel triangle and classic holidays both organised a trip exactly wat we wanted. Hotel was great , every information was right, driver was very good, i forgot his name. Car was new etios. I went in april so found snow every wre in sonemarg, pahalgam, gulmarg. I thing i like to mention, union taxi and pony agents/workers are worse, thy dont care abt tourist, thy just want to grab money. U can reach sonemarg pahalgam and many places with tourist cab or self car, bt once u reach there, u hav to take either union taxi or pony, In sonemarg- 1000-1500 per pony/person ask them to include jacket nd boots. And go till thajivas glacier. Thy might ask u 3000-5000 In pahalgam - depends on points u cover , starting from 1,2,3,4 points. Well just tell u want to go beisaran or just first 3 point , including boots - 1500. Guide, ski rider, skate/sledge rider , every one will come around u, for doing activity, thy dont let u roam around, eat. Just keep on forcing u to do activity. Which is worst part. Even after a direct NO, thy keep on forcing u. So watever activity u want - do in gulmarg. Well this information was already provided by our organisers. For shopping of dry fruits/kesar - buy from royal kashmir dal lake . Go by shikara. In dal lake market. If any one want info about any location or activity or route can ask me . My Hotel review - ROSE PETAL (srinagar) - 4/5 CHINAR - ( pahalgam ) - 5/5 KOLAHAI GREEN - 5/5
Trip to KashmirIt was an awesome experience and the most memorable trip. My Wife and I had a wonderful time together. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip. All the arrangements Accommodation, Food, Travel & Guidance were all well made by the Travel Home. The hotel provided in Srinagar was very good. A special thanks to Safaa for the arrangements done and the way she coordinated with us was remarkable. And we cannot imagine this trip without our driver and guide Imran bhai.
