The festival's specifics have not yet been announced by the government, but judging by previous festivities, one may anticipate seeing traditional activities like horse races, archery, and yak rides. If you enjoy culture and tradition, this event is one you should not miss.

Various planning and preparation steps necessary for the two-day festival's effective execution were thoroughly discussed.

For the purpose of spreading and publicizing the event, secretary Kacho Mehboob Ali Khan emphasized the importance of proper promotion through print, audio, and video media as well as through social networking sites. He gave the relevant authorities and departments instructions to organize local stakeholders and the general public to make the celebration an authentic reflection of Ladakh's culture.

With the exception of a few adventurous travelers who like doing the challenging Chadar Trek, commonly known as the Frozen River Trek, Zanskar is not now extremely well-liked by visitors. The Padum-Darcha Trek, Lugnak Trek, and Zanskar-Sham Valley Trek are for those who wish to push their limits a little bit further.

There is just one town and administrative block in Zanskar, Kargil, and it is called Padum Town after Padmasambhava, one of the founding founders of Tibetan Buddhism.
