This 2-day festival is celebrated during July, in the spectacularly situated monastery of Lamayuru, about 127 kms west of Leh.

The masks worn by the lamas during the dances represent guardian divinities from the Dringungpa pantheon. As in the case of other monastic festivals, the sacred dance - drama concludes with the destruction of the sacrificial offerings. Devotees come by the hundreds to witness the celebration.
