Dandi / Doli Porters with their Sticks on the Trail - Amarnath Yatra (pilgrimage) - Kashmir
The porters are walking up back to their camp after taking some pilgrims down the mountain. They are carrying the long sticks used to hold the dandies / dholies (chairs). They will go up and down the mountain several times a day, carrying pilgrims that are not capable (or willing) to walk on the trail.
