Kashmir Trip with Travel Utopia and Travels Srinagar.

Kashmir is indeed heaven on earth. We visited Kashmir in Jan 2018 and we were really mesmerised by it's natural beauty.
I would like to thank Travel Agent: Travel Utopia tour and Travels(Srinagar) for making our trip so simple and hassle-free. Initially we had fear in our mind and a bit hesitant while planning to visit Kashmir. But after coming to Kashmir our all fears disappeared when we could see such a hospitable nature of Kashmir people and their immense respect towards tourists. We really felt the generic fear about Kashmir is just medicated and nothing else.
Our entire trip was very comfortable as we had a wonderful stay in decent hotels in (Srinagar, Pahalgam and Gulmarg) arranged by Mr Mudasir. Also the transport facilities arranged by him was excellent. Mr Javed(Driver) was very generous and a nice person and he was there with us from day1 to last day of our trip.
I would like to thank Mr Mudasir and Mr Caved for making our trip very comfortable and memorable. At the same time I would like to recommend this Travel Agent to any people planning to visit Kashmir in near future.
Regards,
Amit
