We just spent 3 days with Shaban and his company (www.endlesstourandtravels.com) in late October, hiking up to Tulian Lake. We decided not to take the horses, so it was a long and strenuous trip, especially coming from sea level. Shaban was our guide and thankfully decided to bring along another person (my husband and I are both in our 50’s, and in good shape, but it turned out to be a good idea). Shaban suggested we consider the horses several times, knowing how difficult this trip is for a day trek, but we were stubborn! In addition to the hike being around 24 km round trip, the elevation gain was almost 5,000 feet up to the lake, so coming from Delhi, the breathing was difficult! We made it, however it had begun snowing and the way down was more than a bit treacherous. Shaban had brought walking sticks for each of us and really, this made SUCH a difference. When we got down out of the snow, Shaban made a fire and warmed us all up with some tea….the skies cleared and the rest of the way down was beautiful. Shaban was always attentive to us, the extra guide was also helpful, as much of the trail was snow covered and slippery. We had a wonderful day and made it down safely thanks to Shaban and his friend. Highly recommended!

WHi guys, I came all my way from Germany to Pahalgam and these four days I spent there were incredible. I did a 2, 5 hours pony tour with Lone Shaban and and his company (www.endlesstourandtravels.com) and I had a lot of fun with him. He is a really reliable trekking guide who knows the really interesting places, not just the ‘tourist’ places. As somebody mentioned earlier he also owns a guesthouse in Pahalgam, so if you search for a nice place I would recommend that. Really nice guy, good english, easy going! Thumbs up!

Mr Shaban and his company (www.endlesstourandtravels.com) organized a very nice trek to Tulian lake from Pahalgam. It was a two day hike and the second day was challenging but fun. Him and his team are very nice and responsible. His cooking is good and hygienic.
He is very recommended if you decide to go to Pahalgam.

As mentioned by many fellow reviewers, Shaban is knowledgable and reliable guide in Pahalgam . his company (www.endlesstourandtravels.com) and other guys of company are also good. We had gone to Tulian lake with him , which was an awesome experience. He is a good reader of weather condition and would go all out to ensure your journey is memorable. I shall always remember that he gave me his shoes and wore mine, to ensure I dont slip in snow as grip of my shoes had worn out . I will highly recommend lone shaban and his company.

I had good fortune of finding Endless Tours and Travels a few days before heading to Srinagar for a 4 day trip. Although I contacted the company with very short notice (2 days before I would arrive in Srinagar), Shaban was very easy to contact on his mobile and very efficient with responding to my questions. He arranged both my transport from Srinagar airport to Pahalgam and a few day trips for me to see as much of Pahalgam as possible in such a limited time. Additionally, I stayed in his tidy guesthouse and had the pleasure of spending meals with his warm and welcoming family. While on the treks, I was fortunate enough to meet his colleague, Irfan, who was an excellent guide and a sociable, polite and interesting trekking companion. Overall, my experience in Pahalgam was exceptional and that is due to the wonderful service from both Shaban and Irfan and I wouldnt hesitate to recommend them to any traveller looking for fantastic trekking in Kashmir.

When I arrived in Pahalgam, I finaly beginn to enjoy the beauty of cashmir, thanks to Shaban, which show me his area with an open heart. We made some multiple one day walk, coming bac every night at the same point, which was great! Plenty of beautiful areas to discover around. A highlight in an Indian trip.
