We have scheduled this journey to coincide with the world famous Hemis Festival so that you can get a real taste of Ladhaki culture. If you have an adventure in your heart and exploration on your mind, come with us on an unforgettable trip.
Hemis Festival is a two-day celebration, offering insight into the culture of the region. The main attraction of Hemis Festival is the masked dance performances by the Lamas around the central flagpole in the courtyard while the musicians play some traditional music. The beats of drums and trumpets and the sounds of cymbals and wind instruments commence the celebration of the festival with an early morning ceremony in which thousands of Buddhist followers and Ladakhi nomads take blessings from the portrait of Lord Padmasambhava. Hemis Festival has got a prominent place in the international circuit of tourism and we also offer it as a special event. It’s a much-awaited event during the summers for tourists.
