Trich Mir where Fairies live

trich mir 450x301 Trich Mir where Fairies live

Trich Mir from Ayun Valley

“Fairies live there and they protect this valley from evil and never allow anyone to climb up to Trich Mir and meet them, if someone does, he never returns.”
Thats what my guide told me pointing at that mountain and thats where i got to know about its name “Trich Mir“. Later i got to know that its highest peak in Hindukush range and 33rd in world.

For a minute he really made me imagine fairies flying and living in the snow, the white bright fairies. But obviously, that was too far away from reality.

I have experienced such myths about certain mountains while traveling all across Pakistan. For example mountains of Lake Saifulmalook in Naran or Zarghoon Mountain range in Quetta are one of them.

I am pretty much fascinated by such things and seriously these things then tends me to explore more, to actually find out the hidden beauty.

Do you have any such story regarding any place? Any myth? Please do share in the comment below.

    That’s interesting.
    In Japan,there are many stories like this.

    old Japanese people feared and respected the mountain,
    and they built many small shrines on the summit of each mountains.

    And Japan has many legend about YOKAI.
    YOKAI(妖怪) means one kind of fairy.
    But they are not beautiful,looks ugly.

    For example,one kind of Yokai,in prefecture OKINAWA.
    The name is KIZIMUNAA.
    People believe KIZIMUNAA lives in old big tree,and he always watch human.

    He doesn’t do nothing to human.
    But if people cut the old tree,he would cause disaster,
    such as Tunami Typhoon .

    We can see many similar stories around the world.
    For example native Americans.
    They have kept living in the nature for long time.
    So,have a huge respect to nature.
    to Big mountains,trees,rivers,and stones.
    They always feel the power of nature without science,
    and pray to stones and trees.

    We call this “Animism”.

    In Japan many Yokai invite me to deep forest.
    I feel that. :)

      @Sinh: Wow. thats amazing : ) I am scared now ;) Do you really want to meet Yokai ? hehe
      you rightly said that people who live with nature have a huge respect to nature. Similar is the case in Pakistan if you have traveled in the mountains of Hindukush, Karakoram and Himalayas.

      Thank you Sinh for sharing this wonderful story with Pakistan :)
