One of the most popular prayer festivals in the Nubra Valley, the Dosmoche or Desmochhey - also known as the 'Festival of the Scapegoat' is celebrated at the Diksit Monastery. The same festival is also celebrated in Likir in Leh, but since it is celebrated in the peak winter of February when the Khardon peak is snowbound, all the locals gather at the Diksit Monastery to celebrate.

The key attraction at this festival here is the mask dance performed by the Lama's dressed dramatically, expressing the win of good over evil. The dances performed is believed to avoid any ill fortune in the coming new year.

People in the region throw images made of dough to deter any evil & to welcome peace & prosperity in their lives.
