WHY GO THE DISTANCE : The Ladakh festival is an annual fiesta organized by the J&K Tourism Department in association with local communities and district administrations of Leh during the first two weeks of September.

The main aim of organising this festival in the month of September is to extend the lean tourist season in the region and also to represent the rich cultural heritage of the area. The grand success of the festival and the tremendous response from both foreign and home tourists is due to the rich cultural heritage and variety of other attractive programmes like traditional Polo match and Village archery.

The famous monastic dance in the monasteries including exhibitions of invaluable Thankas and other Ritual Instruments of the monasteries are a part of this festival. The tourists have the opportunities to see the entire traditional cultural programme of the region like Traditional Folk dance and songs of different parts of Ladakh. The grand achievements of the Ladakh Festival are noticeable of the significant increase in the arrivals of tourists during the lean tourist season of the year.

The festival opens in Leh with a spectacular procession through the streets with villagers dressed in traditional costumes dance and sing folk songs, backed by an orchestra. The procession finishes at the Polo Ground and participants then perform various folk dances and samples of their regions.
