Event Details

Come winter and Ladakh becomes energetic to celebrate Yargon Tungshak Festival. People from far and near gather to witness the well-known Cham Dance aka Mask Dance. The zeal to celebrate this festival is quite apparent from the flamboyancy of the region.

Performers dressed up in multi-colour attire and big masks will cast a magical spell on you. A unique combination of loud drum beats and low-level syllables is a strange melody, which makes this festival even more interesting.

Not only the mask dance but also the delicious cuisines compel you to attend this festival once in a lifetime. Gurgur Cha, skyu and thupka are not to miss delicacies while enjoying this festival. One can also hear the enchanting of a grand religious prayer in the monastery. Monks utter various sacred Sanskrit and Tibetan chants.
