    • Trip to Ladakh

      Our trip to Ladakh with Milli Travel was fantastic, We were 10 friends & all the arrangement was hassle-free from hotel to renting bikes. As Milli travel is situated in Srinagar our communication lost with the executive just before a few days of our traveling due to the abolishing of article 370 in J&K. The team traveled to Delhi & contacted us to make sure all the arrangements should be proper & connect us with their representative in Leh. I admire the courtesy they show towards the customer. Apart from Milli, the representative from Travel Triangle also did a great job in customizing the travel plan. Overall we had a great memorable trip with Milli Travel & Travel Triangle. Also thanks to the local representatives of Leh.

    • Trip to Srinagar

      Peacock travels is a well managed and professional company but in my case they didn't provided the well located hotels and traveller friendly driver. Hotels were well maintained but very far from visiting spot. We although knew about it bcz our budget was on lower side. But biggest let down was the driver who was a bore and he was trying various tricks that will make us cancel our plan or change itinerary. Yusmarg was a miss citing security reasons. Still I do want to recommend peacock for this vacation. They might be best of the lot in Srinagar. But next time I will plan this tour by my own. Many, apart from the immense beauty of nature, I loved the people who were welcoming tourist. They were so down to earth and caring.

    • Trip to Ladakh

      This was first booking experience with Travel Triangle. From the beginning I experienced a very good communication with Travel Triangle and their partner Milli Group. Farah and Firdaus were so good in dealing customer that I did not get any worries before and during the journey. Firdaus is extra ordinary in understanding the customer's pain and fixing them. We (the travellers) had many issues/concerns regarding our food, accommodation, travel, cab, driver, etc. But Firdaus from Milli Group solved all our issues like a champ. I give her 10/10 for her behavior. The only bad time we had when Srinagar (Article 370 time) was out of reach over phone and unfortunately that was exactly the same week of our travel. So when we could not contact Milli Group, we contacted Travel Triangle POC Mr Rohan. I would say, he was the only bad experience in this entire trip. He used to disconnect my calls and requested us to communicate only through emails. He was so arrogant, he showed his anger on me. He must learn how to deal with customer. Rest all were fine. Entire trip was the best of the experiences so far.

    • Trip to Ladakh

      Overall it was a good trip. There are few things which they should take care with responsibility. We travelled from Srinagar to Ladakh by road with halt in kargil. It was excellent until then. As we reached ladakh, we were not updated about our travel for the next 4 days by the local travel agent. He did not even have the courtesy to call even once to know if we were alright during the entire duration of the ladakh trip. What worried me most was the lack of oxygen cylinders which they should have told us in ladakh and should be made mandatory for travel to pangong . The camp in pangong that is pangong sarai was the worst . We paid so much and the facilities were not even close to basic camp. They did not even have any emergency oxygen cylinders there too. We were told that all cabs will be carrying atleast a small cylinders.Travel agents don’t tell u that u don’t have to suffer in those pathetic camps and there are beautiful home stays available in pangong. So u feel like a fool there when everyone around u is in proper rooms. Drivers were excellent and cabs were good. Even on the last day ladakh agent never contacted us. And hotel zen ladakh charged us so much and gave us a room without even a fan. They gave us a table fan like in a 1 star hotel . The second night they changed the room which was better. Nubra valley

    • Trip to Ladakh

      Amazing trip!! We booked a 9D Leh-Ladakh trip for 3persons from Srinagar-Kargil-Leh route with Milli group travels through Travel Traingle website. Iqra of Milli group was very considerate and extremely helpful in understanding my requirements and was always in touch. Our Srinagar driver was good & we had Innova there. However, we preferred Xylo in Ladakh and our driver Norbu from Stanzin group was a Gem!! He kept us entertaining throughout journey and drove very well & most importantly safely! The hotels Baru-La in Kargil, Ibex cottage in Pangong and Himalayan eco resort in Nubra were good in terms of food & deluxe rooms. Hotel K2 inn in Srinagar had small space not comparable to deluxe rooms, while Hotel Kidar in Leh had good rooms but the food was not good such that we ended up exploring nearby restaurants. Overall the experience was really good, thankfully because of the drivers as most of the time we were out, the road journey & visiting places. Travel triangle is a good platform where you can get quotes from different travel agents and you have the choice to select as per need & budget. Definitely will try again! Thanks

The hotels particularly in Srinagar were very good, whereas hotel in Pahalgam could have been better. The houseboat was exceptional in all terms. The cab driver was very friendly and helpful. Overall a great trip booked via TravelTriangle and happy to recommend in future! Thank you.

    • Trip to Ladakh

      We had an amazing trip to Ladakh and Srinagar for a span of a week. The hotels provided by kailash expedition were great. Specially the Nature's Nest Camp in Pangong was best one with amazing view of lake. The driver was also very good and provided us all the guidance needed during the visits to different places. Overall trip was well coordinated and I would give 5 starts to Kailash Expedition for making our trip memorable for Life Time! I would surely recommend them to my friends and relatives travelling to Ladakh and Kashmir. Whole trip to Ladakh is memorable for us but to share the few moments, I think Hall of Fame, Turtuk, Pangong lake visit and Shanti stupa along with Leh Market stroll was indeed a memorable.
