The Bakarwal of Kashmir: Life and Challenges on the Path to the Himalayas
Session: The Bakarwal sheep and goat herders of Kashmir migrate 400km each year, with their families and their herds, between the warm lowlands of Jammu, and the lush pastures of the Himalayas. This was always a difficult journey, but recent years have brought increased challenges, with many families choosing to leave this way of life. This presentation takes a look at some of the challenges they encounter, and some possible ways forward.
