    Kashmir is an extremely beautiful place to visit…this was made more special by the hospitality shown by the local Kashmiris…starting from Shakeel Bhai (96227 09560) who arranged our transportation while we were there and Imran bhai who drove us to all the scenic locations in Kashmir…I will strongly suggest that you book your trip with them…reasonable rates and no hidden charges whatsoever…add to it the suggestions provided by them which made our Kashmir trip a success…as far as the trip is concerned try to visit the main spots if it is your first trip - Gulmarg, Sonmarg and Pahalgam. You can visit Kashmir anytime of the year.

    Must visit place. Pony ride deep into forest hills nearly 6 hours with family reaching a huge lake. Ride into wilderness is memorable. No comission to cabs hence not popular/ promoted but must bargain rate. Gentle ride unlike Gulmarg, Sonamarg.

    This is one of the 3 Routes to Reach Srinagar from Jammu.
    Although its a bit tough one and Closed for 4-5 months due to snowfall
    If you travelling in July Aug than before travelling confirm about Landslides as it's quite frequent on this road.
    Also carry good amount of food in your car so if you stuck in any Road block
    You can survive for few hours.
    After crossing Peer ki Gai
    You won't find any good restaurants till Surankot.
    Last tip: Drive via this road only if you are perfect in driving and have a great control over your vehicle as it's beautiful and dangerous ride at the same time.

    Mr. Abdul knows his way around his audience, he is extremely talented, humble, entertaining and knowledgeable. He knows everything about every small corner of Srinagar and other places in Kashmir. He was also extremely hospitable and warm with his gestures, definitely recommended.

    Kashmir Travels is a very professional tour operators. Anything we needed was catered and made sure the itinerary was not affected. We , eight of us from different parts of India and Dubai were happy with the arrangements. Hotels were all more than we expected. The house boat was very luxurious and had a very good caretaker. The cars were new and drivers Mr Arif & Mr Faizal were very courteous. They stopped at many places for photo shoots and knew the terrain and roads well. The young man Arslan was helpful in all the tourist spots . Mr Nazir the owner was communicating with us on a daily basis and made sure our comforts were not compromised. All of us being senior citizens was not an issue with helpful team from Kashmir travels. We had an amazing 14 nights 15 days ( Leh included ) well planned and curated tour. Thank you Mr. Nazir and your wonderful and efficient staff. Some of us have already started to plan our trip to Kashmir again during winter .
    My friends extend their grateful thanks and wishing Kashmir Travels the very best 🙏

    Our tour was planned in short notice to Kashmir 4N-5D. The team Srinagar tourism has helped me from starting and was very helpful in curating the entire package so as we don't miss any points and enjoy too. Ms. Mehvish was my tour planner and she was throughout connected and helped in all travel before we started. The driver was also very nice. Hotels rating and location needs to be reaffirmed before booking and may opt as per your choice with differential cost. Must book gandola ride before tour date as it is online and mostly advance booked by agents to sell in black on much higher cost.

    We used Kashmir Ski tours for our 8 days Kashmir intenary and we must say we had a great experience. We were 10 years f us including 4 senior citizens and 2 young kids.. The whole itenary was made keeping the different travelers age in mind. This tour was also special because we celebrated our parents 50th anniversary in this trip. Sahil organised the entire anniversary celebration in Pahalgham. He also arranged for a singer who performed only for us in mini party hall inside the hotel. The singer was just awesome ! The party hall was also well decorated. The whole trip was as great. Even the driver that was arranged for us for very good and helpful. I would also like to mention about Kunjan who helped organized the intenary for us and was in constant touch with us during the whole trip ensuring our family is comfortable.

    We travelled to Kashmir in April to experience the Spring flowers and trek in the mountains.
    Shakeel Ahmed, our driver and guide was responsive and reliable. Once we had established the guidelines around Ramadan (which would have been useful to know and understand ahead of time), we worked very well together.
    When our homestay accommodation did not match our expectations, Mr Mir reacted promptly and alternative arrangements were made.
    The houseboat accommodation reserved for us on Nigeen Lake was exceptional and a definite highlight of our trip.
    The day treks in the mountains were of an easy to moderate standard and we thoroughly enjoyed them.

    We started our trip with Darshan of Vaishnav Devi Mata in Katra,Jammu. We took Horse ride from Katra till Ardhakumariand then walked the Temple. The trip started with the Darshan and Blessings of Mata Vaishnav Devi.

    Then we visited Pahalgham - Mini Switzerland by Horse. Such an adventurous and thrill Horse ride experience which was so exciting.Mini Switzerland is a must watch place.

    Srinagar Tulip Garden is a lifetime experience.. Sankaracharya Temple is too good located in a small hill.
    Mughal Garden,Pari Mahal,Shalimar Bagh,Dal Lake,Shikara Ride,Overnight stay in Houseboat was so enriching experience.

    The Gondola Cable car in Gulmarg was absolutely heavenly experience and the much sought snow and snowfall was so exciting like touching the skies. Cannot describe such a unique experience. We can go on Sledging,Skiing,Scooter rides and many such adventurous rides there which is worth exploring.

    Again in Sonmarg we experienced snow with sun which was much needed to beat the cold and the place was too good. Here also we get all Adventurous rides.

    Dhoodhpathri is a beautiful place filled with green meadows and pure river water makes it even more special. We had the Desi Makki Roti with Sarso Ka Saag the local delicacy which we should never miss.

    Hats off to Shahid Bhai for providing us the wonderful and amazing experience. The Cab Driver, Hotel room stay,food and the guidance of Shahid Bhai was so special and unique.

    Thanks Kashmir Experience and Shahid Bhai for giving us a pleasant, wonderful life time experience to visit and cherish our Dream destination place which we were planning for a long time. Finally the Dream came True through Shahid Bhai.

    We had a really smooth, safe, and exciting experience in paragliding with Mr. Bunty and the experienced team of pilots. They had arranged for pickup near Harwan Garden. The drive up the mountain to about 5300 ft height in a Bolero is very exciting and they have experienced young Faidan as our driver.

    Then each of the pilots will help you get buckled up in the gear and simple instructions to be followed - and off you soar into the skies. The best time is sunny days between 11.30 am to about 2.30 pm when thermals can take you anywhere above 7000 to 10000 ft above sea level.

    You need to have a self stick and camera if you want to shoot your own video , or you can take their services @ 500 /- additional. The views are no doubt breathtaking and the pilots will steer the paraglider throughout in a gentle, manner that will make you feel as if you are floating in the air.

    They also carry parachutes so there is no need to worry. However, the uphill drive and the take-off will certainly give you an adrenaline punch depending on your nature.

    Guys, girls, uncles, and aunties, this was the most memorable part of our sri nagar visit and if you are under 100 kgs & more than 12 years - this is a must-do activity if you like adventure and tick it off your bucket list .

    My heart felt thanks for the entire team for such a wonderful time.

    It was our first time to visit Kashmir, hence decided to go with Travel partner-Overseas.
    The tour itinerary was well planned with good hotel accommodation as we paid for 4 star hotels (as per their rating- not sure).
    Royal Comfort Regency at Srinagar- a good service with nice food (2 nights)
    Marina Drung at Gulmarg- At good location (Drung waterfall), good rooms with very bad service ( 1 night)
    Sparrow at Pahalgam- a good hotel with nice service (1 night)
    Houseboat at Sinagar- (1 night)- here overseas gave us a commitment of Wagnoo Shereton-Nigeen lake (taking extra 3k)- after full payment done, they changed the house boat and conveyed us to stay at Dal Lake --Mahajong---saying that this was an upgrade to make out trip more memorable---
    This was something which I feel unprofessional way---
    The payment was taken on Petrol Pump via swipe machine (my all transactions of 72k are for Azad Filling)- don't know weather it will cost me more or not)---
    A travel company shall have at least their won swipe machine for card payments---

    The Driver was with over attitude, more interested in cuts from the vendors wherever he stops for food or shopping- we felt so---he took us at all locations as per his opinion---as we were not aware about the status of open locations at that time- we were completely dependent on him--
    Overall, it was a mixed experience for us--- but as a family trip, we enjoyed every moment without cursing to anybody---
    most important- the people of Kashmir (Rikshawals, housekeeping, common man, hotel staff, shikara pilot and all those to whom we have interacted) are very humble, helping and caring...Thanks for your kindness--
