Journey to Khandadhar

Five Fuals or Shepherds in Upper Kullu Valley prepare for their annual transhumance to the high altitude meadow of Khandahar. This 5 day journey with 2000 sheep and goats is permitted only through strategically developed religious taboos and restrictions, a journey akin to a pilgrimage to their hidden Shangrila, where mountain passes are guarded by fierce deities called Joginis.
