For centuries, Ladakh has been the crossroads for exchange of goods and ideas from different parts of the world. Hosting visitors from Kashmir to Samarkand, Lhasa to Banaras, Ladakhi civilisation reflects generations of intermixing of different cultural influences.
By Providing a platform that is enriching, innovative and of the highest intellectual quality, the Ladakh Literature Festival hopes to continue that story.
The second edition of the Ladakh Literature Festival, will be held between the 10th-12th December, 2020, and will showcase authors, poets, journalists and thinkers who have written on the Himalayas and beyond.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will be a mix of online and on ground sessions. We also propose to have workshops, art exhibitions, music performances and film screenings under strict compliance of COVID-19 protocols.
