The Apricot Blossom Festival is organized by the Ladakh Tourism Department. It is aimed at popularizing this local tradition by inviting outsiders to partake in the celebrations with music, shopping, games and dances. The festival will be held in Leh and Ladakh from April 6, 2024 to April 18, 2024

As the spring season arrives, it brings with it a perfect opportunity to explore the beauty of nature. This year, from April 06th to 18th, Ladakh is hosting the Apricot Blossom Festival, a feast for the eyes and the soul.


Various areas of Ladakh will come alive with the soft and delicate baby pink apricot blossoms, adding a breathtaking beauty to the already scenic surroundings. However, the blooms have a short lifespan, so it is advisable to capture their splendour while they last. These blossoms make for excellent photo opportunities and are a must-see for all nature enthusiasts.


The Ladakh Tourism Department is organizing this festival, providing tourists with a chance to experience the region’s culture and traditions. The comfortable and pleasant weather in April makes it an ideal time to indulge in outdoor activities while enjoying the beauty of the apricot blossoms.


Apart from the natural beauty of the blooms, the festival will also offer an array of vibrant cultural programs, showcasing Ladakh’s unique and colourful heritage. The festival is also an excellent opportunity to shop for locally made handicrafts, which are always an exciting feature of the Apricot Blossom Festival.


The festivities are not just limited to cultural activities, as local vendors will be selling an array of apricot products, including jams, dried apricots, juices, and wine.
