Day 04 - 21st March
Breakfast at Hotel and Departure to a full day Excursion of the unique valley of Kalash. Kalash or Kalasha valleys are a wonderland for tourism: The Kalash are an indigenous people living in District Lower Chitral KP Pakistan. the Kalash hold on to their own religious beliefs, along with their own identity, way of life, and language. The Kalash people are also noted for their fair skin and blue eyes, leading to a popular hypothesis that they were of Greek origin, specifically the descendants of Alexander the Great’s soldiers who followed him on his campaign in India. They live in three specific valleys in the south of Chitral- Bumburat, Birir, and Rumbur, an estimated population of about 4000 people, which makes them the smallest minority group of Pakistan. Kalasha culture is one of the ancient and rich cultures from across the world and might be described as being of universal value, would be something which was extraordinary and unlike anything else in other parts of the world. In the Kalasha belief system, women are considered to be especially impure during menstruation and childbirth. There is a separate building for these women and it is prohibited for men to enter the area. The area is known as Bashali. Kalash women have a unique and colorful dress that serves as the most obvious symbol of identity for the Kalash community. They are fun of music and dance and both male and female celebrate the four different events together by dancing and celebrating happiness. It may be not wrong if we say that Kalash is the happiest and innocent people in the world. Evening return to Chitral for an overnight at hotel.
