    Akshay's 6 days trip to Haridwar

    We booked our trip with Agent Trip Birbal through travel traingle for 6 days 5 nights. We made sure our plan will.be customized and as said by travel traingle and our travel agent they customized our plan according to our needs and made sure everything went as per plan. Agent Trip Birbal was really good and we got everything what we were promised. Also the driver of our cab was really good, with very good driving skills and was really helpful. We were going to miss out some points but our driver made sure that we got to see our planned tourist spots. The hotels provided by our Travel agent were good. especially Corbett Treat Resort and The mountain Quail ( Mussoorie) stood out in food, room, cleanliness. The shivaay hotel in rishikesh was decent one. If anyone wants to go to Uttarakhand , i would suggest go with Agent Trip birbal but make sure to customize your own plan and get on mail by the agent that they will provide all the services that you asked for. Travel Traingle staff was also good to us but a problem that i observed was ,our trip guide Kocab Hammad's number was switched off most of the time and that definitely is not a good impression. If anything had gone wrong how we were supposed to contact our trip guide from travel traingle? Please take this into account. Rest all was perfectly organised. You can trust Travel Triangle.

    Hetal Parikh

    Mumbai

    Hetal's 3 days trip to Haridwar

    The experience of booking the trip for my parents through travel triangle was not good in terms of reliability. They outsourced itvto some agent called tripsailor who was based in Delhi and the agents were very rude. Secondly none of the mobile numbers givenb to us to contact worked as they were out of reach or temporarily disconnected.Before the trip u felt i was duped for the money as they were not responsible to contact us .I am really disappointed with this kind of service.1 day before the trip i gad to make 10 calls back and forth to tripsailor and travel triangle.

    Kvdiji's 7 days trip to Haridwar

    Alltogotget I had a good experience. I visited uttarakhand though celebrate vaccations. Even though the rishikeah hotel hesitated to provide us the services whic mentioned in itenery, the Celebrate vacations ensured everything properly.... I will recommend celebrate vaccations for a budget friendly holiday package

    Details should be shared clearly and driver was not interested in showing the places.

    Archana Panda

    Mumbai

    Archana's 7 days trip to Haridwar

    The driver Jeetu Bhai was very understanding and efficient. For traveller ' sake , it is better there is a clear communication between the driver and the agent. Also the agent should be more transparent with the travellers so as to not put them in difficult situation during the trip and jeopardize their fun time. Also I believe the agent should be accessible till the trip ends at whatever time the Traveller might need his help. The agency needs to work on that.

    FAQ's of Haridwar

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Road conditions in Haridwar remain mostly unaffected even in the Monsoons travelling in the day or even at night. However, the roads get overcrowded during the Kanwariya season in Haridwar.

    It is scorching hot during summers and very chilly in the winters. So ideal time for one to visit is February-April and August-November.

    Haridwar is a holy place with numerous temples. Among them, Mansa Devi Temple, Bharat Mata Temple, Chandi Devi Temple and Maya Devi Temple are some of the most visited ones.

    Yes, you can definitely witness Ganga Aarti that happens in Har ki Pauri two times a day. The timings of the aarti depend on the sunrise and the sunset each day. While morning aarti is not so famous, the evening aarti is prefered by the tourists as it gives a phenomenal visual effect.

     

     

    Rishikesh, Dehradun and Mussoorie are some of the nearby places one can visit while on his/her tour in Haridwar.

    Albeit, it is safe to travel to Haridwar from Delhi by car during the night, it can be a little difficult for people driving to the town for the first time. For, post Muzzaffarnagar, the highway is not really easy to navigate through.
