Mastuj Valley

Mastuj valley in upper Chitral is perhaps the most picturesque of the many unspoilt valleys that Chitral has to offer. The valey stretches North to within 20 miles of Central Asia and easterly to Gilgit and Hunza. Mastuj is at the foot of the Shandur Pass where, at 12500 ft, a terrific polo match takes place between Chitral and Gilgit on 8 July. The best accomodation is at the 200 year old Mastuj Fort where wooden Chalets have modern amenities in a historic and breathtaking setting
