    The Nepal trip organised by Himalyan Adventure Treks and Tours was surprise for my parents and in laws which was a great experience. The hotels (3* star) was clean and people were very good and helpful. Both Hindi and English language was spoken by the staff which made my parents feel comfortable. Food was Ok but place of stay was superub. Driver named Sagar, who was disciplined and punctual. He drove the car as professional and was good in his work. A very big thanks to Bagwat Ji for organising the memorable tour for my parents in my budget. I would refer him always. A very Big Thank you for this wonderful and memorable trip for my parents. Namaste.

    Umamaheswari's 6 days trip to kathmandu

    The travel triangle does awesome for us. We took Nepal destination for a family tour of 4-5 days. Things were well organized and much appreciated. The Travel operator who took the role of suggesting the places and hotels in Nepal. They assigned We care Holidays - Ms.Nirmala, who gave us a good response and prompt answer to all the questions and requests we made. She also kept her regular follow-ups with us even after we reached at the destination. Our Tour includes Kathmandu-Pokhara-Chitwan- Kathmandu. The hotel at Kathmandu was Apsara Boutique was good at its facilities and food. The hotel at Pokhara was Kuti Resort and Spa, was super and star class services concerning food, spa, stay and so on. Whereas at Chitwan we stayed at Wildlife resort. The hotel facilities were good, but the services are very poor. There was no room service or nothing could expect. All we did is we stayed for a day and moved from the place. The rest of all are well planned and a good package offered. On the whole, we had a wonderful tour with a lot of good memories. Thanks to the Travel Triangle Associate are also played their role well for all payment-related activities. Looking forward to booking all our tours with them. Thank you once again.

    Sagarayar's 6 days trip to kathmandu

    1) Hotel Boutique Apsara (Kathmandu) Was Average in every way. 2)Hotel Kuti (Pokhara) was SUPERB, Services were given like 5star Hotel. First of all.. one word to the Executive (Nirmala Sharma) from We care Holidays.. A GOOD HUMAN BEING. Nirmala ji... Thanks a lot for providing such a good customised package for us. We Care Holidays had done really a Fantastic Job. Nirmala ji had made a customised plan for us so that we will not miss any important places and activities happening in and around Nepal... Kishorji (Cab Driver) actually helped and made required arrangements for us at a point though like Para-Gliding. And every part of the tour was excellent.. all the places we visited are worthy. I have Heard that Nepal People's are very Honest and Genuine i saw in Kishorji he is most Respectful, Humble, Gentleman Person. Thankyou Everyone Who Helped us... 1)Somya Ma'am ( Travel Traingle) 2)Nirmala Ma'am (We Care Holidays) 3) Kishorji Sir (Cab Driver)

    Sahil's 6 days trip to kathmandu

    While the hotels provided in chitwan and Kathmandu were just average, the 3 stars are for koti resort in pokhra. It was a jewel. Neat clean room, excellent f@b and housekeeping service, professional staff and a heated swimming pool. Well, generally asked, the holidays were ruined by the driver. We felt as if we are paying the driver to roam with us. It was always his comfort first and our comfort was last in his mind. One day 1, it was already late in the night and he could not find the hotel which was selected for us so he gave us an option that he will take us to Hotel of his choice. When we told him no, he became Furious and told to speak to the travel agent. On day 3 in Pokhara our travel agent had given options of two hotels for us to see and choose. The driver was again trying us to take the 1st hotel, which was 5 km out of pokhara and looked very tired. We told him that we wanna see the other hotel. He again became upset and when we finally reached koti resort, we realised there were 2 koti hotels, no.1 and no.2, just apart by 2 min walk. While we liked koti 1 as a hotel , unfortunately they had only twin room. Then we told the driver to take us to koti 2, as rooms were available there. As soon as we got down, the driver rudely said that please be fast as i will not get food. It was only 7.30pm. Here we are not getting a place to rest, and there this guy creates useless tension. Day 5, kathmandu, at 5.30 pm, on enquiring where we go next, he says hotel. On asking him why not patan durbar, as its written in itinerary, he says its closed. Then he says talk to agent. Google showed only museum is closed, and durbar and temple are open. So we tell him to take there, and he gives us following excuses 1. Its closed. 2. I don't know the way, had to keep google map on. 3. We will have to arrange for parking, as there is no parking there. ( Parking is just 50meters ahead of that site). This driver also had an habit of parking the car at his comfortable location, and we had to walk till the point and come back. And it was always about his tea, his food and his stay. So what he hated was we never stayed in the hotel which provided him free services. Mr Tripathi, solved our problems wherever possible. But the driver ruined our holiday. I actually felt frustrated with this guy.

    Anantha's 7 days trip to kathmandu

    Hi Team Wish you & your family a very Happy New Year 2020 Please find the feedback of my recent trip to Nepal below. It was indeed a last minute choice to visit Nepal. I did so with no expectation based on what i heard and saw over internet about what Nepal has to offer. I was blown out based on my personal experience in this country with lots of love and tranquillity. However this turned out to be one of my memorable trip. Lots of support and care taking by Snowyoda team, particularly Sabhu my planner who was always there when i needed in addition to planing & execution of my itenary. For any text i send in whatsapp i would get a response immediately very attentive. Smart in identifying and suggesting hotels to my prefetence...on the whole excellent. Apart from this, 1. Ramesh who was supposed to be my driver (for Kathmandu & Nagarkot) turned out to be a Chauffeur and a very good friend. Starting from helping me selecting my Jerkin to taking me places to eat veg food based on my preference silently he was ensuring that i was happy and comfortable always. 2. Santhosh who was supposed to be my driver for Pokhara also turned out to be a good Friend as good as Ramesh. He suggested me good view points and other natural charm and restaurants where i can have veg food to my preference etc etc. I was taken care at every incident, even after i left Pokhara to Chitwan he called me up personally asking if i am ok and have i reached Chitwan safely which was a great gesture. All in all this This Trio ( Sabhu, Ramesh and Santhosh) was polite, patient, responsive and smart they truly pampered me a lot that i feel it as a benchmark. With lots of beautiful memories from Nepal, i returned to India to leave to Thailand which is like my second home. I will definitely visit Nepal again shortly with Snowyoda and this Trio(SRS)......

    There was no hot water in the hotels. The electricity was also intermittent. The driver was excellent but he was not updated on time about the itinerary. We missed Patan Durbar Square and Bat Cave.
