A Flock of sheep from mountains

Winter is on and Gaddis are making their way towards lower terrain of Himachal Pradesh.
Let’s welcome all Gaddis(shepherd) and their large flock of sheep and goats to maintain their livelihood when their life in mountains get paused for sometimes.
When snowing is heavy, cold is on its maximum peak in mountains, it is tough time for Gaddis and every year it draws Shepherds to leave their houses and come to lower altitudes to reduce the impact of winter’s and pass them by,
During the mid of October, they start their journey along with their families and animals toward lower Himachal Pradesh, for the span of 3 to 4 months until the life in mountains gets to normalcy.
