Srinagar has been one of the most sought after tourist destinations that we had longed to visit since our marriage but due to something or the other it was not possible. Finally, this year, we made it to paradise on earth. This whole tour has been an experience to remember and we feel very much accomplished booking it through Thrillophilia. The booking experience on the website was super smooth as everything was very clear starting from the itinerary to the inclusions. We were also assisted by the agents during booking which gave us a chance to add some unique bits to our trip.
On the very first day of the trip, we arrived in Srinagar and then one of the representatives received us and helped us with the transfer to the hotel that was prebooked for us. The representative was very friendly and he just made a mark in our mind within minutes. The hotel accommodation was super awesome with picture perfect views all around. The checkin experience was again very smooth. After completing all the formalities, we spent some time at the hotel and then headed out on an exploration tour to visit the world famous Mughal Gardens, Shalimar Bagh, Nishat Bagh, and Chashma Sahi Natural spring as travellers had shared their Thrillophilia reviews. The views were just amazing and the travel guide also helped us capturing some stunning snaps with the beautiful hills in the background. Then we visit the Hazaratbal Shrine which is the place where the hair strand of Prophet Mohammad was preserved. In the evening hours, we spent a good time near the lake and also got a chance to explore the local markets. At the end of the day, we came to the hotel for a restful sleep. The dinner at the hotel was very delicious and we enjoyed it.
Our travel guide told us that the second day is going to be very amazing as we were to take a shikara ride in the lake. We woke up to a hearty breakfast and then completed all our check out formalities. Then we headed to the Dal lake with our guide where we got to witness the real beauty of Srinagar taking the Shikara ride. Then we were taken to the local markets where we got to see some of the popular paper mache works, Kashmiri handicraft, walnut wood carvings, traditional Dongra jewellery and much more. At the end of the day, we returned back to our new home, a houseboat. The accommodation in the houseboat was just good and the overnight stay was just peaceful and comfortable. We would also like to thank reviews of thrillophilia for giving us a clear picture much before the trip was even planned.
The day three happened to be the last day at Srinagar and it was time to head back to our very own place. We got up bit early in the morning to capture the brilliant views of nature and the surrounding hills. We were served breakfast at the houseboat and then we began packing our bags not only with clothes but also with memories that would stay with us all through this life. The agents helped us with another super smooth check out process and also dropped us at the railway station from where we boarded our train. After taking this enthralling trip to the city of lakes and gardens, we would say if you are looking out for a holiday break to skip the regular hustle and bustle of life, then just go ahead and plan a trip with Thrillophilia. The representatives are very friendly and knowledgeable. They not only take good care of the travellers but also give them good insights about the place. The drivers all through the trip were again very friendly and helped us with loading and unloading the luggages. The hotel accommodation and the houseboat were handpicked by the team as per shown in thrillophilia reviews. They were well maintained and had all sorts of modern amenities and fixtures to make your stay comfortable and memorable. Last but not the least, I would also like to thank my husband for surprising me with this sudden plan to head out to Srinagar along with kids for a great holiday vacation. Thank you all.
