But generally how are the people coping up? Is the place geared up to have more visitors? We are planning to be there in second week of Sept, keeping our fingers crossed. Not worried too much about risks or road conditions as I know they will become alright in a couple of weeks, but would not like to be in place where we are not wanted, when people are grieving and the state machinery is busy in relief and rescue.

The hotel owners I spoke to were hoping that some tourism will start in september, otherwise it will be difficult for them to make ends meet for the winters.
Many hotels in Upper leh were not affected at all.
If you do go, please contact ladakhi Buddhist association, or others involved in rescue there, and take few thousands worth of medicines.
From what I could make out over the patchy phone link is that, food thingy is mostly sorted out as many farms are intact, and crop damage is much less than earlier feared, as the cloud burst was localized.
Fresh water availability will also pick up soon. The problem is medicines, as the relief machinery is mostly focused on food and water.

I shall most definitely go to ladakh either this September or next summer to put in my two bits of contribution into the tourism industry there. I hope a lot of other chaps do the same. Cheers

I Think the Leh people have got enough of sympathies from everyone and now what they want is too have some source of income and that only will help them to get back on their feet. So my humble request to all those who had planned is to please continue with their plans if you feel comfortable doing so.
Apart from medicines I would suggest you take a few 100 eclairs with you and keep distributing them amongst the kids. Spreading happiness is the best healing touch you could provide.
