HI

we have booked tickets for Kashmir r next mnth 22-29TH AUG2014.We are in the process of finalizing a package since we have small preschooler kids and to avoid the hassle of managing on our own but the quotation he has given we find that on the higher side do you think we should go ahead or can someone suggest a better option.

He has quoted rs 60000/- FOR 3 nights in shrinaga/2 nights in pahalgam/2nights in gulmarg and day trip to sonamarg . with breakfast and dinner in all the places .and a car service to transfer n sightseeing .. 7nights /8 days package do you think its a good deal or should we manage on our own..Pl advise at the earliest since we need to freeze our plans.

thanks

Package cost can be evaluated if hotel names, inclusions of package and type of transport are mentioned. However, self arrange tour is always better and secured. Aug is lean season, good discount can be expected in hotels.

Hi Mr Roy,

You seems to have extensive knowledge about Kashmir, being from Kolkata.

Can you kindly also help me.

I am visiting Srinagar 7 to 13 sep 14, with 8 adults.

3 night Srinagar, 2 night Pahalagam, 1 night Gulmarg.

One day excursion to Sonmarg and Yosmarg each.

So you think this makes a good iternary? Or will it hectic.

Also I am getting packages for some 8.5k/pax for below hotels. Do you thin it will be a good deal?

Srinagar - Apply orchade resort.

Pahalgam - Mir cottages.

Gulmarg - Apple tree resort.

1 night house boat.

Once sikara ride.

Breakfast n dinner included.

Travel by Winger.

Rahul G

These are budget hotels. The quoted rate seems substantially low. The budget should be around 11-12K per head for 7 days plan. Which includes reasonably good budget hotel/houseboat on MAP and transport.

Get informed about credentials of the agent before go in to the deal..

Thanks,

Does the iternary looks good to you.

Are we missing any good spots? Or making it highly travelsome ad hectic?

If I do go with this package. The price is rock bottom. Right?

The plan is typical for Kashmir tour. You may skip Yousmarg to space out the plan.
