Kalash Valley

The Kalasha Valleys are in Chitral District in northern Pakistan.A few students of history have expounded on the Kalash and the vast majority of them have connected them to relatives of the military of Alexander the Great since a considerable lot of their ceremonies, customs and conventions are demonstrative of the lifestyle of the old Greeks.

The Kalash with their one of a kind culture, conventions, ceremonies, qualities, celebrations and clothing are not be found anyplace else on the planet.

My Experience

The people were used to having tourists in the area so no irritating stares were observed by me as we passed from the main street lined with different shops to the old settlement of Kalashi people.

Their architecture was rich. Walnut wood was used to make two story houses, first being the Baramda and second having rooms. It was based on large pillars and beams decorated with human and animal figures-each one depicting a particular superstition and myth.

 

A single room is equipped with all kind of required household facilities; from charpai to a rice stainer.

The people of the area are well educated and oldest feminists alive in the world. Their women were super strong and treated equal to men. I also came to know that they are serving the nation in various fields of medicine, engineering and even flying.

Even though they are not Muslims, they treat their women as equals. I was surprised to meet those beautiful super ladies who are making their own paths in this land of patriarchy.

Older people of the area don’t understand urdu, however, younger Kalash FestivalOlder people of the area donot understand urdu, however, younger generations are familiar with urdu and english both. If you ask nicely, some of them may agree for photographs as well.

I also want to clear a misconception that Kalashi’s are Kaafir so nobody should dare say Salam to them. There is no such thing. Kalashi people are hospitable. They say salam to every tourist they meet. Moreover, Muslim community also lives in harmony in the very same area as well. So you can find a number of mosques in the region.

Enjoy your visit of this beautiful place that is situation in Northern areas of Pakistan
