About Destination-

Here's what traveller's with us say

I and two other friends wanted to go on a girls' trip. But us being as inexperienced and scared travelers, we had no idea about how to organize a trip and make sure that we do not miss the picturesque and Insta-perfect locations, (Pun intended). We inquired with a few travel agencies, but found certain flaws regarding their itinerary, or customer-friendliness, among other things like modes of transport and stay locations. Food is the major problem.
On the call, Team was cooperative and gentle about our demands for effective travel. I told him that we wanted to visit Manali, and other places on the way, and he soon delighted us with an impressive 6-day itinerary to Kasol-Manali-Dharmashala. Thank you so much for an amazing trip.
We would highly recommend Atmos Travels to anyone. Period. They are the most elegant, and cooperative travel planners available.
