Photographer's Note

I have now found out that these people are called, 'Gujar', they live by looking after their stock, buffalo, sheep and goats. In the spring the animals are brought up to these high pastures then as winter approaches they take them back to the Indian low lands.
They have to let them graze with the permenant farmers there and I think there are laws so that they can continue this tradition even though in these modern times it is difficult.
Here you see their houses they use, actually they are very good but the winter can destroy them so the first thing they do is do all the running repairs
