Photographer's Note

I had an honour of staying with this gujjar family on my last trek in the Kullu district of the Himalayas.

For more information on the Gujjars (leading nomadic lifestyle in the scenic Himalayas) chek out the Wikipedia

STORY: I was on a trek in the Kullu district of the Himalays when it started raining very hard and I was very lucky to find this gujjar family that was very kind not only to give me shelter in thier hut but they also cooked some excellent organic delicacies for me and gave me fresh milk. I took many portrait photos of this family that I intend to post to the address that they provided.

I found the girl in this photo as most photogenic in the family and I was so very overwhelmed by the hospitality that this gujjar family showered upon me.
