Unique Adventures Ladakh Travels facilitates mountain expeditions by synchronising the ground logistics. Prior permission is required from the Government of India whose liaison agency is the Indian Mountaineering Foundation [IMF] who charge a booking fee according to the region and height of a particular peak. The best months for attempting expeditions are July, August, September and till the middle of October as this entire region falls in the rain shadow. The IMF will provide a Liaison Officer which is mandatory with each climbing team. Please note that you must book at least 4 months in advance as the processing tends to take time. You should also take care to mention all details as required by the IMF. Unique Adventures Ladakh Travels will assist in following up your application process and once completed will provide camp and climbing staff according your team's requirements.

Amazng tour in my life!

See the best of Venice in a day on a tour that combines a guided walk with a cruise along the bustling Grand Canal. Hear the history of St Mark’s Square and Rialto Bridge from a guide, and visit St Mark’s Basilica with a skip-the-line ticket to beat the long admission lines.

This tour was best!

Even though we only had a couple of hours Andreas focused on san Marco, and Venice history. Truly informative and entertaining. He was able to combine history and tie it into what we wewe able to see today. Gondola ride at end was a real treat.

Very helpfull and smart tour

The walking tour was very disappointing and pretty uninteresting. Taken to an unimpressive plaza surrounded by unremarkable buildings. We did see one twisted-looking building that was interesting. The only thing that semi-saved this tour was the gondola ride, and since we were on the Grand Canal during the annual regatta, that was definitely special!
