Hemis Festival and Ladakh
Ladakh – the spectacular mountain geography of this remote Indian province is a stronghold of Tibetan Buddhism. Monasteries adorned with the iconic blue, red, and yellow prayer flags dot the steep mountain slopes, and crystal clear rivers flow from glaciers, cascading into the mighty Indus river.
Join us on this Ekno Travels journey into the mountains of Ladakh as we explore the Hemis Festival, dedicated to Lord Padmasambhava, Guru Rinpoche, an 8th century Buddhist master. This festival of dance and theater is enacted with elaborate masks, costumes, and adornment. The glorious finale, in a cacophony of instruments, chants, and sounds, ends in unveiling of the monasteries giant Thankga (tibetan buddhist painting). A moment of pure magic.
India’s northernmost province, Ladakh – is spread over a mountainous terrain averaging of an average altitude of 3500m above sea level. A part of the State of Jammu and Kashmir, it was opened to tourists in the mid-70s and since then, thousands of people from around the world have thronged to this bastion of Himalayan Buddhism.
