Dilon's 5 days trip to KashmirKashmir is a great place. The scenic beauty with its natural essence is something that you cannot experience elsewhere. The hosts are one of the best and value for money is something you can never get anywhere else in the globe Sonmarg and Gulmarg both were breathtaking
Subrat's 6 days trip to KashmirInitially good time but to our surprise when we reached Hotel Jamal on 3rd day at 8 PM after Gulmarg visit to our shock we were informed that no such booking in my name. Somehow after our phone calls to travel agent he managed some other hotel. I am surprised how can travel agent confirm to the customer without written confirmation from Hotel. Though booked for four star but three star hotels. We have issues with the food quality served at Hotel specially dinner.
Jimmy's 5 days trip to KashmirThanks to travel home crew for making our trip to Kashmir a memorable one. We travelled on the end of July 2019 to Srinagar, Gulmarg, Pahalgam and Sonamarg. Special thanks to Safa from travelhome for sharing all the details and helping us organize the trip. Showket Khan who was driving with us all the days was very helpful and understanding. He introduced us to the best Kashmiri food items and explained us about the significant places around during the trip. Overall..a great trip with Travel home team..Thanks guys..
Travellermad's 3 days trip to KashmirDecent trip, we are a couple and visited places around sonmarg, gulmarg and dal lake, cab service is extremely good with a cooperative driver. The only place where i felt lacking is the Shefaf hotel, no proper cleanliness, but the boat house stay was good. All went good as planned. i will recommend this travel agency to other people who are willing to visit kashmir.....Happy travelling

Zubair's 7 days trip to KashmirWe were a group of 56 people including senior citizens and infants and kids. Our stay was a Pahalgam for first 2 nights at Kolahai Green Resort. The resort, rooms, food and service staff all were very good here. Third night was in Gulmarg at Rosewood Hotel. Rooms were good here but service and food was pathetic. Not even to the standard of a budget hotel forget about 3*. The worst experience was in Hotel Montreal, Srinagar where we had last leg of our tour for 3 nights. The hotel didn’t serve fresh food for breakfast and dinner and water served in the rooms was not packaged bottled water but reused plastic bottles and refilled tap or RO water(as claimed by them). Second night of our stay people started getting sick with Food Poisoning and Severe Diarrhoea. By the afternoon of third day almost more than 25 people had to be hospitalised for immediate treatment with saline and injections and rest of them were given medications for the same. It was a dangerous situation as almost everybody had fallen sick. A waiter from the hotel informed that even other guests and few staff too have fallen sick with diarrhoea as the water is not potable. The management rather than accepting their fault was arguing that you people have eaten lunch out and that’s why fallen sick. Whereas that wasn’t the case. Infants who don’t even eat food too had got diarrhoea and also people who didn’t eat out that day. The travel agent and his staff was very helpful in this whole episode taking people to hospital and arranging medicines etc. But the hotel was one of the worst experience we ever had. I request Travel Triangle and its Partner Agents to black list this hotel from their future services as to not ruin their own reputation and travellers vacation.
Gautam's 5 days trip to KashmirI am writing this review after a long time of trip of Kashmir and trip was so amazing that still I have remembered each and everything about unforgettable trip. The company did a wonderful job coordinating and setting up our Honeymoon trip of Kashmir i.e. Srinagar, Pahalgam & Gulmarg. They took care of all the details that we wanted for our honeymoon and then some. The driver cum guide that was selected Mr Aizaz Bhai was always timely and extremely knowledgeable of the activities and sites we were seeing. Very professional and flexible if we wanted to see more of something or slightly change our plans. For the most part though there was no real reason to change anything they put together.
Mailshilp's 5 days trip to KashmirIt was a memorable trip with all the best hotels and facilities that kashmir tours and travel could provide us. All thanks to Shahanawaz sir and Khalid bhaiya who made the trip soo easy and as per our requirement. They did best to their efforts and as promised. These people are very polite and make efforts to satisfy the customer. Khalid bhaiya was very cooperative, polite and professional. Houseboat was too good at nigeen lake. we visited all the main places like pahalgam, sohanmarg, gulmarg with lots of fun and masti with ease of khalid bhaiya. Also, the prices are reasonable.
Gastroentrologydenmark's 6 days trip to KashmirHi firstly the answer what most of the indians wants to know. Is Kashmir safe Answer- 100 times safer then Delhi...Every person is decent they respect women a lot..They don't hate India rather the politics has created a environment of corruption and severe unemployment...for eg a horse ride would charge you 2000but the guy with you(who would be with you will get only 200 RS a day rest all money would be taken by his Malik...even if you tip him in front of his Malik later he would snatch that money also... Not let's start the trip Day 1- we landed at airport at 12 in noon. Unfortunately that was a day of strike in Srinagar...Secondly our plan was to go to sonamarg the first day but that was not possible ......A small mistake by my travel consultant costed me one night t that beautiful place and have to stay at base station Kashmir.If you take a trip make first day Kashmir local site seeing...Nothing new you can get garden etc in Delhi also.....Target only hills from first day that's where the beauty lies.So we checked into the hotel milad regency.Excellent room very good staff.only problem was food was pathetic.Even on last day my cab driver said that he had never seen a hotel in Srinagar so lethargic that can't serve breakfast even at 9 am...lol...but they provided us with excellent rooms...cook just need a refresher course.....4/5 to Royal miladh...every one was good and have a smiling face.... Day 2 sonamarg- start of our trip...our can driver raja ji a very good person by nature and very entertaining took us to sonmarg...about 2 hours from srinagar...from there. You go for sightseeing ...the union can would charge you around 5500....I m a bad bargainer...The cab driver was even more good and took us to exotic locations with really adventurous roads....actually it's on way to kargil will take you to zero point where ladakh starts....again J.k police is damn corrupt and I saw them in necessary creating nuisance with driver...most likely for bribes. One returning we went to snow mountain did snow scooter 2500 for 2 and 1600 extra for self driving me and my wife drive it ...amazing experience....weather was beautiful....After sight seeing we returned back to our base station Kashmir(again slight negligence on part of our tour planner can't stay a night at sonamarg...but it's ok..I am not a messy person). Day 3 - We started early morning for pehegram....It's more beautiful then sonmarg.....we stayed for two nights at Eden resort...perfect is the only word I would say to describe the resort....period! At pehegram first day we took two ponies at 10500.5-6 hours adventurous ride on mountains...no roads nothing......it's some thing which only should be tried by adventurous people...finally after passing through a number ofvbeeautiful places we reach the valley called as mini Switzerland...again an awesome experience....bad thing is that I tipped the old pony man 500 RS which his Malik snatched...I rebuked him for that gave him extra 500 and gave old uncle 500 tip...at age of 55 he took us for 5-6 hour trip....uncle too told us that he is paid just 300-400 per day out of 10500 we gave...literally that's heart breaking. Evening stay at Eden is awesome...nothing to explain everything was up to the mark from food to waiter...a waiter was so good that when on second day I felt like sleeping and he don't saw me with my wife at buffet table he came to my room with 8 eggs.....vao such good peoples...Second day at pehelgam we took unionncar 1800 and went to alu betaab valley and amarnath staring point again beautiful scenes at various locations....The weather at amarnath starting point was rainy and we enjoyed it...... After that we headed back to Srinagar....Mughal garden etc.....fir tourists keep your stay at Srinagar minimum...it's nothing as compared to other places.....Basically as rest day as Srinagar was very hot that day I enjoyed wazawan.... While returning from pehegam at zabar shop we bought saffron shilajeet honey blackberry cranberry..To my utter surprise a villager sold me 2 kg of walnut giri in 1100 RS only.....we get it in 4000 RS in Delhi....we bought porchu at betaab valley and pashmina shawls from villagers at mini Switzerland...the level of bargain is that he was asking 750 per unit and at last he agreed at 4 units for 1000rs lol.....Let your wife bargain don't interfere...I was amazed to see that level of bargaining . Tour to gulmarg again awesome started at 9 reached at 11 took pony ..took gadola ride to the topmost mountain called phase 2.....enjoyed sledge...skieng and snow with rains .....14900 feet's high...our guide took 700 RS Sledge and skie was 4000 for 2. Gandola ride is fixed around 3800 for 2 till point 2...Most beautiful part of Srinagar as per me is gulmarg.again a part of mistake by my travel planner...no night stay at gulmarg(it should be there) rather we came down to Srinagar again. Please do take gulmarg night stay it's the most beautiful place.ponies took 2000 for 2...plus as my habit I tipped the pony boy with 200(depends on you).Every one was very good. Next morning we started for doodpathri....a less populated peaceful area.....again took ponies 2500 for 2 and the two gentle men took us for a 6-7 km sight seeing ...beautiful again....please tip them ...a cofee at Starbucks costs you 250....tipping those people with such good nature I feel banta hai Yar...... After doodh pathri we returned for shikara ride to our house boat....the shereon wangroo was very beautiful house boat....never expected that it would be so beautiful...old baba ki and cook uncle would serve you fresh meals and breakfast and honey moon cake..though not mandatory...I think you should tip them ...they are all so generous and polite.....The kasmir and population I met was totally different from what aaj Tak and all media channels shows....these people arrme 100 times more couteous then Delhi Gentry.......next day morning we did shikkara ride and jet skis tipped the old uncle who gave us a lots of blessing and clicked our pics...... Finally we left for airport ...Raja dropped us.... Overall a perfect trip fulll of enjoyment Keep at least 30 to 40 k extra for two person to enjoy each and every sight seeing...... In short very good peoples especially our driver and all hotel persons and shikara and house boat person and every one....The best kashmiri tea I got at phase 1 gandola ride station moon light restraunt....excellent kashmiri tea ..... Visit this place...it's really a paradise on Earth....I wasted a lots of money in Bali Thailand and all ....Real beauty was just 900 km away. From Delhi. P.s - keep Srinagar stay short. stay at every place sonamarg gulmarg pahalgam etc. Dr Rishu Saxena 7082276412 Every thing...I loved kashmiri people they are so good.
Pinak's 7 days trip to KashmirEverything was well planned. We loved and enjoyed every moment of our trip. Saba is very supportive and feel like a very close person to us, who is anytime ready to help us. Gulmarg is the best place among the three destination within Kashmir we have visited.
