Sopesh's 4 days trip to KashmirMe and My family of 4 Adults n 2 Kids visited Kashmir on Feb12th 2020. Mr. Aqib of Kashmir Holidays arranged the trip very well. After reaching Kashmir, Mr.Parvez Ahmed (Driver) picked us from Airport and he was very good and helpful during our 5days trip. The only issue we faced was in Eden Resort (Pahalgam) where necessary heating was not there in room also proper power backup too was not there. Apart from that we are very happy with the arrangements. Gulmarg Snowfall was best memories will cherish

Souvik's 6 days trip to KashmirDream valley is great but Travel Triangle is not much of help. The agent assigned Saurv Ahuja was nit reachable. Phone number out of service.
Surbhi's 5 days trip to KashmirMy trip was organised by Mushtaq and I must say it was very well planned. I went with my family and was scared due to the negative temp there as my parents were with me. I had a plan of 4 days 5 nights, we went to pahalgam, local srinagar and gulmarg. My parents were extremely happy and didn't want to come back. We stayed at Ennco resorts and anarkali houseboat. All the hosts were very warm, food was really good. We felt like home. I would recommend Dream Valley to you and dont worry they have got it. Our host there who drove us throughout Reyaz Ahmed was exceptionally good and warm. We felt like family . / home with him.
Pragujohn's 5 days trip to KashmirAll was good except we got to pay for chain cab fee at the spot which was not informed earlier. Other than that everything was awesome.
