Jorge Sanchez (Spain):
If you happen to be in Leh during the full moon of June, then do not miss in Hemis Gompa the Eight Manifestations of Padmasambhava Festival (although in Rumtek Gompa, Sikkim, where I lived some time like a monk, this festival, celebrated one moon earlier, is infinitely better), performing dances with masks.
Padmasambhava introduced Buddhism in Tibet in the VIII century.
One of those days I visited the monastery of Alchi.
When the festival ended I started a trekking to cross Zanskar, until Manali, in Himachal Pradesh.
