Lal Draman is a popular tourist destination in the Doda district. And it receives seasonal visits from both local and international visitors. Tourists go there during the winter to engage in winter activities like skiing because there is typically a 6-7 foot snowfall. The area’s stunning scenery, picturesque picnic areas, and cultural events are what draw most visitors.

Every year in the summer, the Grameen-cum-Tourism Mela is held to showcase the Doda district’s culture through a variety of cultural performances in Sirazi, Bhaderwahi, Kashmiri, and Urdu. On that day, numerous other sports, including horse racing, volleyball, kabaddi, daku dances, animal exhibits, and other events are also performed.
