Hemis Festival Tour
Be Witness to One of the Grandest Buddhist Festivals
Whether or not you have been a part of the grand Hemis Festival yet, you must have at least heard about it. Hemis Monastery, the largest Buddhist monastery in Ladakh, holds the Hemis Festival every year with great pomp and show. The Hemis Festival is celebrated every year in early June to honor Padmasambhava. If you're in Ladakh around this time, you should not miss the opportunity to soak up the charm of the festivities that take place during the Hemis Festival. The mystic mask dances, performed by the Lamas, is a major attraction here.
After your arrival in Leh, get some time to acclimatize to the high-altitude weather of Ladakh. Head to the Hemis Monastery to witness the heart-stirring performances of the Hemis Festival. Watch local musicians as they play traditional music with instruments like cymbals, drums, trumpets etc. See how the portrait of 'Dadmokarpo' is put on display amid beating of drums and wail of pipes. Watch the mask dances, which are a part of the Tantric tradition. With these fantastic performances still playing across the screen of your mind, head to the Nubra Valley via Khardungla, which is the world's highest motorable road (5,602m). During you stay in Nubra, enjoy a camel ride and visit the Diskit Monastery and the Samstanling Monastery. Drive back to Leh and take a stroll through the local markets in Leh. It is an excellent opportunity to collect some of most wonderful souvenirs ever.
After making a visit to such popular monasteries as the Shey Monastery, the Thiksey Monastery, the Alchi Monastery, the Likir Monastery and the Spituk Monastery, reach the Leh Airport for your flight back home.
