These horses transport tourists and villagers around the Sonmarg valley in Kashmir. There is no other way except walking to move around in the upper reaches of this valley. They also transfer lots of load to the hotels in the upper reaches of the valley. I saw a horse going up with 4 gas cylinders, now that is a lot of weight. But due to long periods of insurgency and terrorism tourist inflow into the Kashmir valley is very less. It has brought disrepute to such a beautiful place. These horses along with their owners have taken the biggest hit because of this downturn.
Thanks for visiting.
