Himachal People


The goatherds are called Piral. They are nomads. In the winter month they come down to Kangra and the forests of Hoshiarpur and in the summer they live along the banks of the rivers Chandrabhaga in Lahaul. They are brave and hard working and love festivities of all kinds. Their marriage customs are similar to those of the Hindus. Some of them follow polygamy.
