The festivals and holidays in Ladakh are based on the Tibetan calendar, which in turn depends on the lunar cycle. So annual festivities therefore take place on different dates. We are pleased to individually inform you about the monastery festivals, Lama mask dances and folk festivals in Ladakh in your travel time window. Certain monastery festivals are meanwhile very touristy, also on this subject we are pleased to inform you.
