Pir Panchal a Gujjar region

Shamsheer Hakla Poonchi Far from being a dividing line, the well known range of Pir Panchal a Gujjar region is in fact the major linking range of hills and mountains around which the saga of heroic Gujjars and Bakerwals is woven from times immemorial. Strange as it sounds, this watershed has bound together rather than distanced the two climatically and topographically varying regions of the State, viz. Kashmir valley and Jammu Division.
