  I planned a South India tour from Chennai to Kochi. I asked from many different travel companies but I got the best and cheapest offer by 'Way to India'. That was two weeks travel plan. We visited so many wonderful places and we got enough time for some individual program too. In the first week we visited the historical places like temples, museums and some beaches. In the second week we visited amazing natural attraction. All happened at exactly fixed itinerary. We traveled with a comfortable panoramic mini bus and the bus driver (Mr. Ram) was very kind and talented who could manage a good restaurant for dinner and lunch every day. The recommended hotels were correct and better than the chosen category. The connecting with 'Way to India' was a great experience for us and Mr Mohit was very pleasant and flexible for our request. All in all believe that this was the best choice for traveling. I'm sure we'll go back in India again because we found many kind friends at there and we would like to organize travel again by 'way to India'. thanks for all you have done for us thank you so much

  I am so delighted and grateful that I found Way to India. I was nervous about doing a trip by myself, as a young woman, in the Himalayas and it was important for me to find a trusted company to arrange my trip. I searched long and hard but once I spoke with Mohit at Way to India, I knew I found the perfect company. Every question I had or issue I needed help with was handled immediately, proficiently, with excellent service that really went above and beyond. All of the people connected with the company that I met or spoke with are extremely helpful, friendly and an absolute pleasure to deal with. The itinerary created was just perfectly tailored for what I wanted and was done with a lot of thought and care. They stayed connected with me through the entire trip to make sure everything was going well. Really, I did not have to worry or think about anything. I will use them every time I come back to India! I highly recommend to all my friends and family and to anyone who wants a memorable visit to India.   Aditi Banerjee

  Thanks to Waytoindia for 10 day in Rajasthan- Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Udaipur, Mount Abu and Ahmedabad. Everything from pickup from Jaipur airport to drop at Ahmedabad airport was very smooth. The hotels booked in Jaipur and Udaipur were amazing. In Jaisalmer the camel ride and Jeep safari though a bit expensive was a good experience. The car and the driver for the entire 10 days was very good. Thanks to the driver Mahesh, who drove the 2 ladies for the entire 10 days safely and dropped us in time for the return flight to Bangalore.

    Travel Tips:

    How to Reach from Kolkata?

    • By Air: You can easily plan Kashmir tour package from Kolkata by air as the latter is connected to the Srinagar Airport by direct as well as connecting flights.

On an average, the flight duration between the two places is 7 hr. while the cost ranges between INR 5,500-8,000.
    • By Rail: Kashmir tour package from Kolkata by train is possible too. As there is no direct rail connection between Srinagar and Kolkata, you can board a train from Howrah Junction near Kolkata up to Jammu and then reach Srinagar by road. The train journey between Kolkata and Jammu is around 35-40 hr. long while the fare ranges between INR 2,000-3,000. From Jammu, the buses take around 11 hr. and cost around INR 600 to Srinagar. A taxi would take around 6 hr. and may cost around INR 6,000.
    • By Road: The road distance between Kolkata and Srinagar is around 2,300 km. and the journey may take time between 35-42 hr. If you are dependent on the state transport, prefer to travel by flight or train to New Delhi and then take a bus to reach Srinagar. The average time and cost involved would be 20 hr. and INR 800 respectively. If you travel by private car or taxi, the time and cost would depend on how many stops you make. The road route passes through popular destinations like Aurangabad, Varanasi, Kanpur, Agra, New Delhi, Ludhiana and Pathankot.

     

    Local Transport Options:

    • By Foot: At places like Gulmarg and Pahalgam, you would love to wander through the dramatic natural beauty on foot. Make sure you carry good walking/trekking shoes.
    • Ponies: These horse-like animals would take you to the best locations, especially in and around Pahalgam. Don’t forget to bargain a lot as pony owners usually quote 3-4 times the suitable cost.
    • Auto-rickshaws: These are good for within the city transport in Srinagar. The cost may vary from INR 100-400.
    • Taxis: Be ready to spend around INR 4,000 per day for trips from Srinagar to the other destinations of the itinerary. Please note that private cars as well as the taxis from Srinagar are not allowed for local sightseeing at Gulmarg and Pahalgam. There, you would need to pay around INR 1,800 for the local cabs.
    • Buses: State transport buses are cheap modes of transport from Srinagar. The cost may go up to INT 400 and the time involved is obviously more.

     

    What Else to Know?

    • Weather: The valley experiences pleasant weather during spring months (March-May) and summers (June-August). Sonamarg experiences unexpected rainfall during these months; so make sure to carry umbrellas and raincoats. September-October is autumn time when you may experience chill in the air. November marks the beginning of winters while December-January brings heavy snowfall. February is popular for post-snowfall activities.
    • Things to Pack: Heavy woolens and warmers during October-February, moderate to light woolens and cotton clothes for the rest of the year. Gloves, caps, hats, scarves, mufflers, sunglasses etc. are other useful things to carry. Skin care products are not to be missed.
    • Shopping in Kashmir: Go for embroidery work and beautiful traditional attires. Don’t miss the locally grown saffron and spices as well as honey, tea and dry fruits. Crewelwork, paintings, and wood carvings are available in some great designs. Pashmina and shahtoosh shawls are among the most popular items. Restrict shopping activities to Srinagar which has some great marketplaces like Lal Chowk Market and the Bund as well as government emporiums.
    • Eating at Kashmir: Any Kashmir tour package from Kolkata is incomplete if you don’t savour the local preparations. If you are a non-vegetarian, you are in for the most extravagant treat of your life as you welcome the mouth-watering goshtaba, roganjosh and other such cuisines on your plate. For vegetarians, there are options like aloo dum, lotus stem preparations ad modur pulav (rice cooked in saffron). And, if you have sweet tooth, the valley leave you spoilt for choices like phirni, shufta and rot. Never say no to nun-chai and kahwa, the refreshing Kashmiri teas.
    • Being Safe: Kashmir, as you might be familiar with, is a sensitive place due to its close proximity to the Indo-Pakistan border. However, deployment of armed forces and special tourist police ensures safety for the locals as well as the visitors. Still, make sure not to wander off to lonely places and late at night. Follow the traditions and avoid indulging in religious conversations with the local dwellers. If you are a foreigner, avoid wearing revealing clothes especially at the religious and holy places.
