Gaddis are the Tribes of the Himachal Pradesh, residing in the Dauladher Range. The peculiarity of the Gaddis lie in their Khanabadosh Nature - they are Gypsies in true nature as they travel to the higher pastures along their flocks in the summer season and so are transhumance in their traditional practice.
In the earlier years the Ancestors of Gaddis left India during their tough times. Later on with the Chauhan Rajputs Brahman Gaddis descended to the place called Chamba in Himachal Pradesh. From those years, Gaddis and their generations have been living in Chamba along with the flocks. Aside from Chamba, they are also found in Kangra district, near Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh .
