     Rated : 3.0

    I was expecting a call from Thrillophilia (a day before the travel), which was'nt there. Luckily, I informed the Ladakh travel agent on the day of travel (who did'nt knew that I was arriving) that I will be arriving, otherwise I would have been stuck without any phone and network on the Leh airport. The best part of the trip was people over there in Leh (our driver Tashi, Rizvaan from Thrillophilia and Sewang). We were pooled with family with kids, I will suggest a non-kid couple should be paired with non kids couples only (although the couple with us were very nice). Our second driver from Leh to Srinagar was smoking and talking on phone while driving, this was not expected. Our stay at Srinagar was also made a mess, as our food was arranged at one House Boat and we have to take a boat to sleep at another house boat. Overall, I will say we expected a better management from Thrillophilia, which was missing. However, the soothing factor was the people we met there and the beauty of the place.
