People of sonmarg

There are no permanent settlers in Sonmarg, due to harsh weather conditions such as heavy snowfall and avalanches. According to the census of 2011, the population of the town is 392. Most of the people belong to the nomadic Gujjar tribe. They migrate to the lower reaches of the valley during winters, to escape the harsh weather. During the summers, they return to Sonmarg and carry on with their day-to-day activities such as cattle grazing. They lead a very simple life and are very friendly in nature, greeting people with a smile wherever they go. The people typically wear colourful, traditional attire. The preferred clothing during winters consists of ‘pheran’, worn by men as well as women. Under the pheran, they wear ‘kangri’, a pot filled with hot coals to protect themselves from cold.
