Event Details & Reservation

In the ancient valleys of Kalash, the locals celebrate their annual Uchal festival to pay homage and commemorate the summer harvest of wheat and barley amidst music, dances, lights, and colourful exuberance all over town.

The three settlements of the Kalash are in three breathtakingly beautiful, cold, and green valleys which are narrower than most others. The slanting wooden and rock houses overlook the turbulent river that powers the mills and irrigates the farms. As you walk along the main market street, the towering mountains, the thick trees, the thunderous river becomes overwhelming the strong, wafting fragrances of jasmine.

If the raw nature is not enough to tickle a traveler’s fancy, the hospitality and culture of Kalash is bound to captivate your senses. On a riverside tea stall you may find a person playing rhubab (a stringed musical instrument), another may be found dancing alone in the fields, a merry band of young girls singing and dancing on a roof, and a traveler can almost be sure to be invited into one of the locals’ home for a chat over a cup of tea. The warm greetings, immediate friendships, and the Kalasha’s zest for life makes it hard to leave when the time comes. 

For this tour, we take on an adventure through the valleys of Kalash to experience their culture and harvest festival, Uchal, and to see the majestic Tirich Mir of the Hindu Kush from the heights of Birmoghalasht in Chitral, alongside the chanced sightings of Markhor, Pakistan’s national animal, at Toshi Conservancy.

Join Gerry’s Adventure Club as we take you through the beautiful valleys and mountains of Kalash and Chitral on this 6-day tour to experience the flamboyant culture of Kalasha and awe-inspiring beauty of Chitral.
