I want to tell you about other fest in Ladakh.
Yuru Kabgyat is a two-day monastic festival of Lamayuru Gompa that falls on the 17th and 18th day of the 5th Tibetan month, generally coinciding in July. With about 200 resident monks, Lamayuru is the principal monastery of the Dri-gung-pa order.
Numerous sacred dances and rituals are held on the eve of Yuru Kabgyat. The masks worn by the lamas at the dance are those representing the guardian divinities of the Dri-gung-pa order.Like other monastic dances, it concludes with the destruction of the sacrificial offerings.
