As a long winter ends and Kashmir’s meadows are green again, the people of the mountain – a semi-nomadic Gujjar tribe – have returned to their summer homes.

The Kashmir Walla’s Umer Asif and Abrar Fayaz visited Doodhpathri meadow on the edge of central Kashmir’s Budgam district to document this renewal of life’s cycle.

Asif and Fayaz documented the life of a Gujjar family and also captured the stunning landscape of Doodhpathri.
