Ladakh Calender & Festival Dates

Celebrated with great fervour every year, the festivals of Ladakh are usually held in the courtyard of Buddhist monasteries. Monks wearing colourful robes and frightful masks perform cham (sacred mask dances). These cham represent the purification of mind and also the triumph of good over evil. The festivals are an important part of Ladakh's cultural life. People, young and old, from all parts of Ladakh attend these monastic festivals.

Festivals are traditionally celebrated to commemorate the birth anniversary of religious figures (Buddha, Padmasambhava, etc.) and other significant dates in the Buddhist calendar.
