His Holiness finished his, "Walking On The World's Rooftop" Pad Yatra (walk) from Manali to Ladakh. The 400 kms walk was focused at raising awareness awareness of His Holiness' charitable projects including education, environment and cultural preservation of tribal people from the area. The culmination of the Pad Yatra coincides with the colourful age-old Hemis festival in Leh, Ladakh, India.
