Lieutenant Governor of Ladakh, RK Mathur, today attended the concluding ceremony of the First Ladakh Ice and Snow Sculpture Workshop-2022 organised by Kangsing Snow and Ice Sculpture Association in association with Ladakh Police at Sangtakchan near Tsogsti on the way to Chilling.

LG Mathur appreciated the Kangsing team led by President Tsering Gurmet for taking the initiative of organising the workshop. Stating that Ladakh is one of the very few places in India blessed with snowfall and ice, LG Mathur said that the people of Ladakh should fully utilise this opportunity that nature has offered to them. He termed Ladakhi youth as a great crop of talent, especially in creative fields, who will take Ladakh far. 

LG Mathur stated that the Administration would provide support and assistance for machinery required for making ice sculptures for next year’s event. LG Mathur also suggested putting up ice and snow sculptures at more than one place next year and organising multiple activities to attract tourists.

Earlier, Additional Director General of Police (ADGP), Ladakh, SS Khandare and Dr Nordan Otzer, who provided support to Kangsing for organising the workshop, briefed LG Mathur about the potential of ice cafes and hotels in Ladakh.  

Speaking on the occasion, Vice-President, Kangsing Snow and Ice Sculpture Association, Tundup Dorjey, apprised LG Mathur of the challenges faced by the Association in organising the workshop. He also thanked the Administration and Ladakh Police for their support.
