Seasons in the Lidder landscape

The mountains and meadows through which the river Lidder flows are camping grounds for the Gujjar and Bakarwal communities. These vistas are spectacular all year round with each season distinctly different from the next.

Here is a small collection of handwoven Pashminas we have developed celebrating the various hues each season brings to the landscape around the river Lidder.

Spring brings with it bright blue skies and a sea of white clouds, endless mustard fields and snow capped mountains.

The deep blue skies in summer with the evergreen pine and gray river. People camp in bright tents all along the river bed, enjoying the short lived warm days.

Autumn comes with its rusts, flaming oranges, ochre and olive; as if the land is celebrating the last burst of sunshine before the cold, grey winter sets in.

The cold, snow clad landscape with grey skies and a dark, sluggish river where even the evergreens seem black lasts all winter
