Trip to LadakhTo start with, I must give a really big thanks to Kailash Expedition to arrange such a wonderful trip to Ladakh for us and of course TT for letting us meet such an agent. Ladakh is a place where the planned schedule does not always work and flexibility matters a lot in terms of your hotel booking and cab. Kailash expedition managed this flexibility well and helped us complete the vacation smoothly. The Driver who accompanied us was really good and well knowledgeable of the roads and conditions there. The hotels which were booked for us in each location during our trip were just awesome and without any flaw. We enjoyed a lot staying there and those were standard places to stay in. I do not find a single complaint to raise in terms of service quality of the hotel staffs. In one word, just go for Kailash expedition if you are planning to visit Ladakh without a second thought. One of the scariest memory I could remember was happened near Changla Pass. We were stuck there from 11 in the morning till 8 in the evening but the pass was yet not opened. With scores of vehicles behind and infornt of us, we could not even return. One side of our vehicle was actually a avalanche zone which could trigger death. Finally at 8 pm, all of the vehicles decided to return and our expert driver turned the vehicle very carefully on that narrow mountain road. Our next challenge was to get a good staying place as this was not planned and hence no booking was made in pangong that night. But out driver made some calls and not only a place to stay, but a standard place to stay was booked. Thanks to Kailsh expedition and Our Driver for their management at the last moment. It wouls be there a experience in our mind forever.
Trip to LadakhLeh Ladakh Journey team was very cooperative in making the itinery. They were accessible round the clock.Special kudos to the team for organising the trip in most efficient manner. Bhavna Mam was prompt in her responses to our queries. Entire experience was hassle free. Looking forward to associate further trips with the team.
Trip to LadakhOur travel agent Pooja was extremely good and helpful . She was always available for us. Leh hotel Kidar was quite good, their staff and manager were amazing . Our home stay in Pangong was however not accessible by road and was accessible via frozen lake which we couldn’t access so we had to find another home stay for our selves. Nubra valley cottage the wooden nest had great view but very small rooms. Our driver was the best part of our trip, he knew his ways and knew how to drive through roads covered with heavy snow and we didn’t face any problems at all. A lot of cars were skidding , slipping etc, he was extremely helpful towards all.
Trip to LadakhGreat experience and leg is nice place to visit Hunder village shyok and nubra valley
Trip to LadakhWe booked a trip for 8 travellers & had a great experience with 'Perfect Holiday Destinations' from the planning to the trip to the last day. Priyanka was always reachable & prompt in responding / resolving any issues. Jini (in Leh) co-ordinated everything very well even though the plan had to be changed due to the unavoidable circumstances at one location. Overall, a great experience.
Trip to LadakhIt would have been 9 or 10, If someone in Leh-Ladhak would have been there to guide. we were clueless on 1st day. Still the arrangements were good and the followup on few things would have been done which missed.
Trip to LadakhOur trip was good but it was not great as there wasn't properly communicated abut the journey timings and driver till Ladakh was great but later from Ladakh, the driver was not much interactive and we got disappointed. But the over all trip would be better with proper knowledge and we thought to try few local dishes but nobody helped us in it. And we told that few places can be discussed with driver and can visit but later it was not fulfilled. They told us some bland reasons, such as "it was not on the route", " it will cost u extra amount" etc. We were ready to pay extra also but still the driver was not ready to take us. So it turned out be good trip but best trip.
