Festivals in Leh Ladakh

Ladakh is primarily influenced by Buddhism and Tibetan culture. Reflection of these two can be best observed during the numerous fairs and festivals, held in the region throughout the year. Also known as small Tibet, Ladakhis celebrate their festivals in a more traditional yet colorful way. In order to feel the real essence of the civilization of Ladakh, it is highly advised that the region must be visited during the festive season. Whatever be the reason, be it any marriage, birth, harvesting, commemoration of any monastery, or the Ladakhi new year, celebrations are long lived in the region.

These festivals cum celebrations are marked by feasting, singing and dancing along the tunes of the folk heritage of Ladakh. Apart from the usual celebrations, the monastic festivals in the region are the more highlighted ones. If you are in Ladakh during summers, you must not miss the Hemis festival and Matho Nagrang at any cost. Performers in these monastic festivals showcase a sacred dance drama, wearing facial masks and colorful brocade robes.
