The Bakkarwals of Jammu and Kashmir are goat and sheep herder . They migrate and return annually from the hills of the Jammu region,trough the Himalaya, to Kashmir valleys. In this year migration, due to unsettled weather that brought unseasonal cold and heavy snow, many families lost most of their livestock across high Himalayan passes. Despite this tragedy,recognizable in their eyes, many of them have not lost their kindness and agreed to have their picture taken.
