"the experience was awesome. The whole thing organized by Thrillophilia was great. Our tour operator Jigmet sir and the whole crew were 1 no. SHAMAAASS. Julley.
11 July 2019
We went for Manali to srinagar Bike tour. It was the best bike trip of my entire life It all started with the person named Shubham from thrillophilia who helped me in selecting the best trip and processed with my booking, all thanks to him! Without him I wouldn’t have been able to experience the best trip of my life. On arrival there, we met our tour guide Tani and our Mechanic Shashi about whom I have read a lot at thrillophilia reviews. These 2 guys were so supportive during the entire tour that no matter what happened they were always there to look after us. They always made sure we are safe and we are following them and there is no overtaking taking place. Tani, the tour guide, one chilled out person he is! Make sure you get him as your tour guide and Shashi as the mechanic as these guys will always make sure that they are there for you no matter what. And in the end, it’s all the Main man behind everything, Jimmy Sir. Thanks a lot Sir for making me experience the best trip of my life! Without you and your team this wouldn’t have been possible. Thanks for helping us out in every way possible. The roads here are difficult terrain to ride on. You gotta be careful. You gotta carry your gum boots during water logging which is the most difficult to cross. But these guys made sure that we were all safe and had sound health till we reached home. Not even a single person was hurt. Our group was a mixture of all age groups, I’m fact we even got to meet 2 people From the Indian navy as well. One mad kickass experience! Unbelievable. Reaching the worlds highest Pass, Khardungla Top, was the highest achievement of my life till date which happened on this trip! And if at all you wish to go, don’t forget to ask Tani and Shashi as your tour guide and mechanic, and go only through Jimmy Sir as he has the best team! Thanks a lot to everyone out there for which I thought the best way would be to write at thrillophilia reviews.

First, I would like to say thank you to shyam@thrillophilia.com for their coordination and cooperation by writing my thrillophilia reviews.The trip was well planned and executed extremely well by the tour operators, I am very happy with the services provided by thrillophilia during this trek. 1) Our trek leaders Salman and Stenzin are really a wonderful Guys, they were very helpful and supportive all the time during trekking.Other staff members were also supportive and helpful. 2) Food quality and quantity was good. 3) Accommodation was good, camps were in good shape, neat and clean and quite spacious. Let's review the Trek about which I had read a lot at thrillophilia reviews. No doubt Stok trek was awesome as well as difficult. It would not be correct if I will say Stok trek is the most beautiful trek ???? but there is something which makes this trek different from all other treks and which is the main reason to attract tourist from every corner of the word, that is its height. At 20,500 feet Stok Kangri is the highest trekkable summit in India (6,153 m), what google says but when I googled it bit more and try to find if there is any other trek exist in this word which is above Stok, I did not get any information so I assume this is the highest trekkable summit in world ???? Highlights of this Trek 1) Trekking till base camp is not very tiring, which itself a big achievement as you would be able to achieve the height of 16300 feet ???? and the best part what I found in this trek is “you don’t need to walk too many hours to reach base camp” 2-4 hours walk a day is max you will walk. 2) Leh treks are totally different from Himachal and Uttrakhand treks in terms of scenic beauty, it’s a different experience, you would be able to see some splendid views of the Stok mountain ranges. 3) The last day “Summit day” will give you a totally different experience. You start your trek at night time which generally don’t happen in other treks. Moreover, you will get a chance to do snow trekking in summers as well “Only in summit Day”. Here is a great saying "the best view comes after the hardest climb" Very True!!! Preparation: I should say this is not a trek for first time trekkers but still if someone wants to give a try, Start your preparation at least 2 months before this trek as last day “Summit Day” is really a challenging one, compare to other days where you have to just walk 2-4 hours max here on final day you have to walk for a 12 – 14 hours and Trekking at night on Snow is bit tricky task and it becomes more challenging when you have to walk by putting Crampons on your shoes as rightly suggested by many people at thrillophilia reviews. a) Aim for 5 km running in 30 minutes b) Do breathing exercise which helps you a lot during this trek especially. c) Drink as much as water you can.

From Recent Expedition -: Srinagar > Leh > Manali !! The feeling was awesome and words are not enough to express my experience of the expedition, but ever since I talked about it, it makes me feel that I’m still travelling, I’m still there. I had been a frequent traveller, but the emotions associated with this tour were different. We enjoyed, we had fun, we went emotional, we met some new friends, we felt proud, we captured every possible feelings and emotions we can during the entire journey.
It had everything that you dreamed about. It had ice (lots and lots of ice), even when I was sleeping battling the cold at night I was could see those ice sheet right in front of my eyes. We were walking on ice, we were drinking those ice (of-course the boiled one), but the most exciting part was that we were never complaining even under these extreme condition. Thank to these amazing group of people I was travelling with. The support staff, the organiser and each and every people related to this trip were an amazing host. They made us feel at home, they fulfilled almost all our demands. I had done 2 treks before with other organizations, but these people were the best. The fun we had is quite vivid with this picture, but trust me nothing can be explained in words, you just have to feel it. Keep yourself fit and go for it . It will change the way you see nature , it will change your perception towards people and many more things. Stay happy and keep trekking

Just like every other travel enthusiast who keeps Kashmir on their bucket list I was no different. And, I am glad I made my Thrillophilia plan my entire Kashmir tour with much élan. The Shalimar Bagh captivated my senses and the spell-binding sunset views at the Pari Mahal, over the Dal Lake, transported me to a different world.Thanks to Thrillophilia for booking my stays in hygienic guest houses that fed me delicious dinners, and sumptuous breakfasts. I will always cherish having lunch in the most wonderful environs, and my short drive to the Betaab valley that made me make the most of bright and beautiful mornings. Totally recommend Thrillophilia for a soothing trip and adventurous tour, all rolled into one!

Whenever I think of Kashmir, the placid valleys, the snow and the stunning greenery blur past. We went to the iconic Gulmarg and Sonmarg and also took an unforgettable shikara ride in Dal Lake. I am still cherishing the memories of the trip I took in January this year with the images of ever-classic Aru and Doodhpathri Valleys still crossing my mind, every now and then. Go pack your bags and set off with Thrillophilia to make the most of humble Kashmiri hospitality and stay in plush guesthouses.

My family and I envisaged a tour of Kashmir and thankfully that trip was made a reality by Thrillophilia with such finesse, that I don’t think I can ever be associated with any other tour company. Right from arrival in Srinagar to getting transferred to an incredible houseboat in Dal lake, our trip was every bit fascinating. We relished a delicious breakfast in the Panjal Range’s lap and headed off to Gulmarg for a soul-stirring experience. The pre-booked hotel at Pahalgam was a beautiful one and made our night stay a comfortable one. We will cherish the gondola cable ride at Gulmarg, the short day excursions to Anantnag Sulpher Springs, Avantiswami, and Avantishwar Temples. Thanks a ton to Thrillophilia, for making the Kashmir tour, a nice blend of adventure and travel by incorporating a fair share of outdoor activities with oodles of sightseeing. If you fancy visiting heaven on earth but are pressed for time, allow Thrillophilia to make a trip worth your while!

I and my friends always made Kashmir a topic of our coffee table conversations and who would have known that our long-awaited dream would bear fruits this very year. I absolutely adore the fact that Thrillophilia literally turned out to be our hero by arranging everything from airport transfers to a dozen shikhara rides and excursion tours. Four of us had a gala time indulging in nature walks at Gulmarg, and participating in the water sports at Manasbal Lake’s Ganderbal. Thanks, Thrillophilia!

A 6 day trip with my family to Kashmir will always be special to me. I am in total awe of how the cheerful representatives welcomed us at the airport and escorted us all to a luxurious houseboat. We had the most fabulous lunch and relaxed, only to set out for an evening tour to the Nehru Park on a shikara. The trip from Gulmarg to Pahalgam on the fourth day will be the closest to my heart because we were in awe of the nature trail that went through the pine forest along the Lidder River. Sonmarg by every means had my heart with its flowery meadows, pristine lakes and glaciers. And the fact that we could all visit the Khir-Bhiwani and Narayan temples on such a short trip, is beyond commendable. Kudos!
