It is also considered as the best time and season to spot snow leopards along with other mammals. The Hemis Monastery is also located within the national park's vicinity and is one of the most famous monasteries in Ladakh. Every year, during the summer season, Hemis Teschu festival is organized and the locals who stay within the premises celebrate this festival grandly. This is the season when many people from various places gather and enjoy the Tibetan culture along with food and music. Various resorts and hotels are also situated here and provide the best packages to the tourists. Nature guides are also available for hire if the tourists have their own group and want to go for trekking on their own (with their own group, instead of joining one).
