THE WATER CARAVAN
Kutan and Kiran, Neelum Valley, Azad Jammu & Kashmir


A group of women carry water home in matkas (clay water pots) precariously but expertly balanced on their heads. The Neelum Valley is a 200 kilometre long valley and runs along the Neelum River (known as Kishanganga pre-Partition). It is considered to be the most picturesque of Kashmir’s valleys and is famous for its scenic beauty, fir forests and waterfalls.
