Chitral Valley is known for its hospitality and if you get an opportunity to stay with traditional family in Chitral, it would be wonderful experience. Traditional hospitality is what you should not miss on your tour to Chitral. Cuisine and culture is what you enjoy on your tour to Chitral Valley. Chitral is the capital of the Chitral District, situated on the western bank of the Kunar River (also called Chitral River). The town is at the foot of Tirich Mir, the highest peak of the Hindu Kush, 25,289 ft (7,708 m) high. Another three hours of drive will take you to the Kalasha Valleys which are surrounded by the Hindu Kush mountain range. The inhabitants of the valley are the Kalash people, who have a unique culture, language and follow a form of ancient Hinduism. As such, the Kalasha Valleys are a source of attraction for International tourists. There are three main valleys, Bumburet, Birir and Rumbur. The largest and most populous valley is Bumburet (Mumuret), reached by a road from Ayun in the Kunar Valley. Rumbur and Acholgah are side valleys north of Bumburet. The third valley, Biriu (Birir), is s side valley of the Kunar Valley south of Bumburet.
Kalash people are the smallest religious as well as the ethnic minority of Pakistan. Their customs and traditions are contradictory to the Islamic and Pakistani culture. The Kalash religion is polytheist faith and the people offer sacrifices for their gods. Their culture is interlinked with their religion and based upon several festivals and celebrations. The people generally do not intermarry or cohabit regions with local Muslims but neither are they hostile towards them. The people are under legal and constitutional protection of the State of Pakistan as a scheduled tribe.
Swat valley known as “Switzerland” of Pakistan is located in Malakand Division of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in Pakistan. Swat is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty. Centred upon the upper portions of the Swat River, Swat was a major centre of early Buddhist thought as part of the Gandhara kingdom, and today is littered with ruins from that era. Swat was home to the last isolated pockets of Gandharan Buddhism, which lasted until the 11th century, after most of the area had converted to Islam. Until 1969, Swat was part of the Yusafzai State of Swat, a self-governing princely state.
Depends on your arrival time
In this trip we will take of to one of the most amazing valley in Pakistan with beautiful people. We will show you their unique culture and the very unique costume they are wearing which does not exist anywhere on earth except Kalash Valley.
I returned from 17 days extremely exciting trip to North Pakistan, which was organized as best as possible by Hunza Ex. The route was long and complicated – Islamabad – Swat Valley – Chitral Valley – Kalash Valley – Hunza Valley – Khunjerab pass – Skardu – Naran and of course – Lahore, but it was worth the effort to be traveled. I learned a lot about the ancient civilizations on these lands, I went through to the 5 highest mountain passes in Pakistan and I have seen breathtaking views, mountains, lakes, rivers. Thanks for the professionalism of Karim and Tarik, who have done my trip safe and comfortable. I highly recommend Hunza Explorers to anyone who wants to visit these places that have preserved old traditions and magnificent scenery
I just travelled to Pakistan recently April 19 till May 13,2016,concentrating on northern part of Pakistan- Gilgit and Baltistan Provinces including Kalash Valley northwest of Chitral. The trip was amazing and somewhat dangerous because of the condition of the roads all around northern Pakistan (Karakoram highway all the way to Khunjarab pass,Skardu,Shimshal Valley,Shandu Pass, Bumboret and Rumbor) from landslide,avalanches,rockfall and driving at night time from Chitral down to Islambad with 10 bodyguards/police in one area down to four as we got closer to motorway to Islamabad – the whole thing was like being in a movie.Action-packed,hair raising,heart-stopping every single time i was on the road- the road to Fairy Meadow was like trip to hell but very very exhilarating and all those roads off Karakoram Highway to reach small settlements.all these experiences made it possible because of the expertise and experience of Hunza Explorers, Karim is an expert guide/driver and would recommend to anybody who would like to experience the ultimate adventure travel- Pakistan has all the elements. But make sure you ask all details from Karim ‘if you can travel by yourself after the set date of your tour with Hunza’, all possible expenses that may happen, including fee for police escorts if there is.The only downside of my travel was having police escorts in most of my travel except Lahore and Hunza ..travelling is meeting a lot of local people but it’s off season so I hardly see people around too and most of the time I was the only guest in the hotel. But the sceneries of the North are unbelievably beautiful, unique and very similar to what I see in Norway,Canada ,Switzerland,and other countries.I will surely come back to Pakistan if the government gives me another visa in the future…!
