Yuru Kabgyat

Sacred masked dances with ornate costumes and music take place during this two-day festival at one of the oldest monasteries in the region, high on a hill with a view of the surrounding area. The Lamayuru Monastery is about two and a half hours from the town of Leh, on the Srinagar-Leh Highway, and can be visited on a day trip by cab.
