An appreciation post.
My trip with Eventica was partly personalized and partly group tour.
Everything was handled perfectly by the Eventica team. My booking and planning of the trip was handled by Haseeb, he guided me towards the right destination for personalised part of the trip which was Dunga Gali. He booked me right hotels both in Islamabad and Dunga Gali while I was insisting for cheaper option, which I realized once I reached Islamabad and Dunga Gali that I would never have been comfortable with the available cheaper options.
After my personalized trip, I joined their Skardu Group tour starting in Islamabad. The guides for the said trip were Hammad and Saifi and let me tell guys right here that both of these people were a gem of a person. From knowing about the places we were visiting to handling the logistics of trip, everything was done perfectly by these people. They even included complementary stuff in out trip which were not including the trip, such as hiking to Rama Lake(for people willing to go) visit to Khanpur Dam and Chapli Kabab lunch while going through Balakot. They also had a professional photographer Waleed on board which was not included in the itinerary, and he was also an amazing person. The accomodation they provided at Islamabad was fine for a 1 night transit stay other than that, all the other accomodations they provided throughout the trip were absolutely great for the amount they were charging for the group trip. Food they provided throughout the trip was also of great and unmatched quality except for some meals where I personally believe it would not be possible to find better food than they provided at those particular locations, such as Breakfast at Jaglot and Food at Rama Meadows. The travelling accomodations were also really comfortable and cosy.
A note for people looking towards camping on Rama Meadows, they should be aware that it’s not for the casual travellers who place their comfort above the desire to visit the nature in it’s raw form because it’s a camping site where the accomodation would be in camps with a rug between you and the earth and food of very average quality. Plus the washrooms will be of portable and very dirty kind. And the temperatures can get really really cold up there. None of which the tour operators can control so if you get uncomfortable with such stuff then it would be wise to not go for Rama meadows camping rather than blaming the tour operators for not providing ‘the perfect’ accomodations at rama meadows.
Overall, it was an amazing experience with Eventica. I would definitely travel with these people again.
