The sightseeing and activities were better than we even thought! I still can’t believe we did so much in such a short time, but we did not feel stressed. We really loved the tour and would do it all over again in a minute! Thanks.

The trip to kashmir was one of the best things we did in India. The scenery is gorgeous and the people are very friendly.
Lone Shaban and his company (www.endlesstourandtravels.com) was an excellent host, taking care of our every need. Pahalgam was beautiful this is really paradise on earth.
While we were there, besides enjoying delicious food, we went on trekking trough the mountains that gave us opportunity to see gorgeous views of the valley and snow caped mountains.
The trekking with Lone Shaban and his crew was exciting, memorable and hassle free. I would definitely highly recommend lone shaban and his tour company to any one who wants to see the Paradise on earth.
Lots of love
