Sindhu Darshan Festival of Ladakh

If you are fond of fairs and festivals, then June to September is one of the best times for Ladakh Travel. Sindhu Darshan Festival is one of the most colorful festivals of Ladakh. Celebrated on the day of Guru Purnima, which is a full moon day, this June festival draws a big crowd of travellers from different parts of the world. Ladakh Sindhu Darshan festival is a three days celebration. The festival is iconic of the unity of the nation and communal harmony. It endorses the Sindhu River, which is otherwise more popularly known as the Indus River. This Ladakh festival is the symbolic salutation to the valor of the martyrs of India, who as soldiers endangered their priceless lives to save the country.

The first time this Ladakh festival was organized was way back in 1997. While the celebration is held in the banks of the mighty Sindhu River, it is a good opportunity for the travellers to come and be a part of the celebrations here and do a trip of Leh and Ladakh. This beautiful festival of Ladakh is held every year in Shey Manla, a place distanced 8 km from Leh.
River Sindhu has its origin in Tibet’s Mansarovar and this particular Ladakh festival is all about witnessing the vastness of this great river and offering gratitude and prayers to it. The Sindhu Darshan festival takes off with Sindhu Yatra, a journey that’s regarded a holy pilgrimage. The festival is inaugurated by the Ladakhi Buddhists. Paahun Tour Managers organizes several trips to Leh and Ladakh. If you would like to be a part of the lively cultural festival, contact PaahunTour Managers to get the best Ladakh travel deals now!
