In the arid trans-
Himalaya, at Kaza's Ladarcha fair, the old trade routes come alive as traders barter and sell a variety of goods and produce. At Keylong, the Lahaul Festival is also held this month.
Elsewhere in the state, Haryali (Rhyali, Dakhrain) announces the advent of the monsoon rains.
July also heralds the travelling and trekking season to Kinnaur and Lahaul & Spiti.
