      I'm going to fly from Delhi to Leh around the 6th of September, 2011 then hopefully travel by land back down South to Manali, Dharmsala etc

      I'm looking forward to the Ladakh festival but I'm wondering does the Ladakh festival have any bearing on finding accommodation in Leh and the Ladakh/ region? Is the festival concentrated on one specific region or spread out over the area? How big and well celebrated is it? I'd like to trek and travel in the region until the end of September then travel by road at the beginning of November. Are the roads generally still open at the beginning of October to head South to Dharmsala? Also what temperature weather is there in September? I suppose I can buy any heavy warmer gear in Leh if needs be?

      Thanks so much,
