“His holiness the 14th Dalai Lama is departing from Leh on the August 26, 2022 by air to Delhi after his month-long sojourn in Ladakh. The motorcycle of his holiness is expected to leave Photang Gapheling, Jevetsal at 7:30 AM for KBR airport, Leh," the Ladakh Buddhist Association wrote in a statement.
However, it is not confirmed whether he will hold any meeting with the political leadership.
