The Gujjar tribes of Kashmir
These Gujars are tall and hardy people. Basically nomadic, with the changed tunes some of them live on agriculture. The majority of them still rear sheep and goats and buffaloes. The Gujars' physical characteristics, language manners, customs, dress and social organisation have very little common with non-Gujar Kashmiris. They have maintained their cultural identity. In appearance Gujars in Kashmir look very much different from non-Gujar Kashmiris. They have long beards and wear a big turban. Inspite of living amidst Kashmiris Gujars have not adopted the former's way of the life and dress.
They speak Gujri language which is some what similar to other gujar tribes or Kshatriya Castes in Punjab (Pakistan & India) speek

Very interesting photo, they seem terribly friendly - I wish I were a man to enjoy having a chat with them if I returned to Kashmeer, unfortunately impossible :((
