Backup in one server And restore it in another

I took backup in my ES 5.1.1

PUT /_snapshot/my_backup/snapshot_1
  "indices": "smsc",
  "ignore_unavailable": true

My snapshot look like

PUT /_snapshot/my_backup
  "type": "fs",
  "settings": {
    "location": "/home/GEMS/ES/backup",
    "compress": true,
    "chunk_size": "10m"

Now I want to restore this data into another ES. I zipped the folder and moved into new server. How to restore this now into new server. I need to give mappings first or by default the mapping will come along with data???

Mapping is part of the backup

Can you explain how to feed this backup to new elasticsearch???
