Shweta's 7 days trip to LadakhI had the awesome trip to Ladakh. Me and my family enjoyed a lot. We enjoyed a lot and had fun throughout our trip. The accommodation and cab was really good. We did face any problem. Every experience was good but the best one was the cancellation of flight to Ladakh, kind of lost hope to go on this trip as weather was not good but reached Ladakh next day and throughout the trip we were just thanking that we reached and had the best experience.
Mani's 6 days trip to LadakhOverall experience was good. The cab driver was very professional and very generous too. The hotel provided in Pahalgam was not at all as was expected, the Pahalgam retreat they didn’t even bothered to clean the room and washroom and also the electric blanket was not electrified properly spark was coming out of it. There were other good hotels too in the same budget or if not so they should have asked for increasing the budget so that we could have gotten a good hotel there. Also in Srinagar the rose petal the management was dumb and was not able to coordinate with their co staffs property, the food was not good there at all. It should be given 3 star and not 4 star. The best place was Gulmarg and there we got to do too many activities like ski, cycle, gondola rides etc. Also horse riding @ Pahalgam was very adventurous and thrilling too as they took us to all the sightseeing points with the pony ride which was 8 kms across the mountains.
Krishna's 6 days trip to LadakhAll hotels were value for money. Home stay was great experience and I would advise to stay there for a new experience. Driver for the journey was very helpful always on time and was co operative. He was the local and was quite know all the places. All sightseeing were good (nature was at its best ) . Yugal is a friend in need. He interacted with us in all emergency situations and helped us make this trip an awesome one

Ajitesh's 6 days trip to LadakhSanglay Palace is good hotel and there, stay for two days were amazing and their services are outstanding as compare to Hotel Dragon Driver was good and strick to the plan. Yugal as travel agent was Good Probably if we got a chance would be again book with Lazy Yatra Leh is "Must Visit" place. Overall , the experience was good
Yashdks's 7 days trip to LadakhOur Stay and hotels was good. Nubra valley had a better tent than the one suggested by you. Yugal was very good Will definitely book with Lazy Yatra and Travel Traiangle. Already recommended to a lot of people Trip was amazing. Driver was amazing
Shashank's 6 days trip to LadakhThis was my first trip with Travel Triangle and I thoroughly loved the experience of planning and booking the trip via them. Would love to plan more trips through them in future. The agent via which I planned the trip was Kailash Expeditions. I got in touch with Stanzin from Kailash expeditions and he was very helpful throughout. The itinerary was modified as per my convenience. Hotel provided to us was Lakrook boutique stay which is a 4 star hotel. All the staff at hotel were very nice and helpful. Mr. Lobhzang, our driver on this trip was also very experienced and friendly. In harsh winters of Ladakh with snow on road, he drove with great perfection and also showed us the amazing places. Leh (Ladakh) is a beautiful place and when you have a great travel agent (Stanzin from Kailash Expeditions) and an amazing portal like travel triangle, the journey and trip becomes memorable. Thank you for this beautiful trip!!
Ketan's 9 days trip to LadakhWe had a last minute booking with LazyYatra and even then Mr. Yugal made sure we had the most memorable trip. Every detail of the trip was planned in advance with inch perfection. The stay was comfortable, food was great and ride was smooth. Our driver, Mr Wangdu, was a great person to share a ride with. He made sure, we were always comfortable and enjoying Ladakh to the fullest. He went out of his way on a few occasions to help us out as our phones had no connectivity there. Overall, I would rate this experience as A1 and would love to enjoy another trip planned by LazyYatra!
Shobhit's 4 days trip to LadakhMy overall experience was goood with kailash expedition and his team. They really worked hard to maintain services for clients. All the best for future. And when i will come back to ladakh definitely preferred kailash expedition. Best memories are so many like drive on frozen pangong lake, late evening visit to hunder sand dune, milkyway galaxy watching at midnight and one worst but ultimate experience was 4 am morning awaking with driver to help him to de-freeze fuel at minus 22 at tangtse but when de-freezing happened battery was totally discharged, then i went to powerhouse to charge battery and due to which we were started our journey with 3 hrs delay. And i really appreciate hardwork of driver mr. Lobzang.
