The dates for 2023 for monastery and other festivals in Ladakh are here!
Visiting a monastery festival is a special highlight for many Ladakh travelers. The dances of the monks – accompanied by sounds foreign to Western ears – are a real feast for the eyes. The hustle and bustle around the dancing clerics is no less interesting. Monastery festivals are important highlights in the life of the sociable Ladakhis. People get together, chat, exchange ideas, meet each other, possibly make marriage plans while the children run around and beg for sweets at the stalls in front of the monastery walls.
