Ankita Bhargava

Kashmir is truly a paradise on Earth, I recently visited Kashmir and explored many unexplored places of Kashmir. I would like to thank Mountain Magic Trek n Tours, Mr. Ibrahim Raina and Spiti Holiday Adventure for making this trip most memorable one. One very important thing what I want to share is that the guide Nasir and the driver Yusuf Ji, which are provided by the company were very decent and they know each and every part of Kashmir and they guided us and showed us the most untouched and unexplored places of Kashmir which I have never heard of or seen. They have organized Surmarg Trek in Pehalgam which was the lifetime experience for me. This trip was a dream vacation for me. Source: TripAdvisor
