Monastery Festivals ( Adventure )

Buddhist monasteries are the inseparable, beautiful and mysterious monuments in Ladakh. Each monastery has a two day festival every year. During these festivals one can observe unique performances by the monks/ lamas. Mero Expedition can arrange your tour in a way to visit the monasteries during the festive time. Some of the popular festivals are of Hemis, Lamayuru, Thiksey and Matho. At the festival you can see the rituals, traditional holy dances (Chhams) and mask dances. One can see the otherwise veiled dieties known as 'protector gods' in the respective monasteries only during festivals. At Matho festival the mysterious oracles take place. Monastery festivals are one of the cultural experiences everyone should have at least once in a lifetime!!
