I spent a whole week of Isolation with the mountains, riverside hotel and the Kalasha people in Bumboret Valley. I am missing every bit of their dance, their culture and most importantly, their language “Kalasha”.
Kalasha valleys have one of the most distinct and different kind of people in Pakistan, with their own beautiful culture, their language and their norms. The thing that appeals the most is their Dress with colorful embroidery that they have been carrying around since centuries with very slight variation with time. They Dance alone, in couples and in groups while people enjoy watching it.
I still feel the rhythm of their dance, the harmonious songs and their way of celebrating. I used to wake up early, get fresh, leave the hotel and sit in a corner to observe what they do whole day.
I believe everyone in Pakistan should experience the valley at least once in a life time, It’s not really difficult to reach Kalash, and much easier to stay there. One can easily get a flight to Chitral from Islamabad or Peshawar and then a 3 hours road drive to the Kalash Valley.
I still have plans to go there probably in winters this time, to experience the snow fall, Hot tea and the Kalasha Culture.
