A traditional pakistani technique to make butter, Deosai park, Gilgit-Baltistan region, Pakistan
We are in Deosai Park, Gilgit-Baltistan region, northern Pakistan.
We visited some shepherds houses, at the entrance of the park, located at an altitude over than 4000 meters high. These shepherds were using some old techniques to make butter.
They use the skin of an animal, filling it with milk and shaking it for some hours (around six or eight hour).  You can see also a red plug on a leg: when pressure inside the skin bag gets down, they blow through it to expand again the bag. 
Houses are a little messy and dirt, but I like to visit real people working in their natural environment, to keep on old traditional work method, something like an art to preserve.
Around the houses a layer of mud and manure, and some small river from where they take water.
