Muslim Kashmiri Gujjars (nomads) on horses in Drass valley in Kashmir.­

During the summer months, Kashmiri Gujjars (nomads) set camps in the meadows in the highest parts of Drass Valley.­ The Drass valley starts from the base of the Zojila pass, the Himalayan gateway to Ladakh.­

Those are photos of my June 2009 Motorcycle road trip in the Himalayas (Manali, Leh, Kargil, Srinagar).­

I was riding a Royal Enfield "Bullet" 500cc Machismo, that I rented in Delhi.­

Photos taken during a 7-week, 7000 Km motorcycle tour across parts of India (Delhi, Rajasthan, Ladakh, Kashmir, Jammu and more) in May-June 2009.­
