Kalash valley tour is one of the top cultural retreats of Pakistan. The Kailash or the Kalasha are the only pagan minority residing in the Chitral district of the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhua in Pakistan. They form the smallest minority community in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Though the people of Kailash were once in a large number, around 200,000, the number has dwindled so much so that only a handful of Kalashas remain— about 3000 to 4000.

The Kalashas live in three valleys of Chitral namely, Rumbur, Brumbret and Birir. The Rumbur and Brumbret form a single culture due to their very similar cultural practices, while Birir being the most traditional one forms a separate culture. The tour provides an amazing cultural experience in the Hindukush mountain ranges among the ethnic minority community of Kalash. UNESCO listed Kalash culture as “Intangible Cultural Heritage” in November 2018. The decision was announced during the 13th session of UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Committee meeting organised in Mauritius.
